Abstract or Table of Contents
Task demonstration is one effective technique for developing robot motion control policies. As tasks become more complex, however, demonstration can become more difficult. In this work we introduce a technique that uses corrective human feedback to build a policy able to perform an undemonstrated task from simpler policies learned from demonstration. Our algorithm first evaluates and corrects the execution of motion primitive policies learned from demonstration. The algorithm next corrects and enables the execution of a larger task built from these primitives.Within a simulated robot motion control domain, we validate that a policy for an undemonstrated task is successfully built from motion primitives learned from demonstration under our approach.We show feedback to both aid and enable policy development, improving policy performance in success, speed and efficiency.
