### Reward Function for q learning on a robot

I have 2 wheeled differential drive robot which I use pid for low level control to follow line. I implemented q learning which uses samples for 16 iterations then uses them to decide the best position ...

### 4 wheeled differential wheeled (skid-steer) robot steering problem

My question is about a square shaped differential wheeled robot, I built, that has a hub-motor (BLDC motor) attached to each corner, i.e., the wheels on the same side, either left or right, have the ...
