Many global-control applications of robotics involve incomplete world information and at best can be represented as a POMDP.
Given this, can we really apply RL to most robotics applications? From what I have seen RL almost always needs full state information to work even remotely well.
What areas of robotics do you have sufficient state information to use RL in? I have my doubts on its tractability for global planning so what subproblems work for RL and how can they be integrated into a global planning framework?
