Abstract

Included is a method for preventing a mobile robotic device from becoming stuck during a work session including: selecting, by a control system of the mobile robotic device, one or more actions to navigate through a workspace, wherein each action transitions the mobile robotic device from a current state to a next state; actuating, by the control system of the mobile robotic device, the mobile robotic device to execute the selected one or more actions; detecting, by the control system of the mobile robotic device, whether a collision is incurred by the mobile robotic device for each action executed; and, calculating and assigning, by the control system of the mobile robotic device, more than one level of rewards for each action executed based on collisions incurred by the mobile robotic device and completion of the action.
