On the contrary, a semi-active mechanism or also called a variable-damping mechanism could only manipulate damping force. Moreover, we have successfully trained a unified control policy for every simulated walking speed. A., Brey, R. H., Iverson, B. K., McCrady, S. K., Padgett, D.

Potential-based reward shaping has been successfully ap-plied in such complex domains as RoboCup KeepAway soccer [4] and StarCraft [5], improving agent performance significantly. In this study, Q-learning is proposed to be used as a controller of a dynamics system of the MR damper in the prosthetic knee in a double pendulum-simulated environment. (2012). Viewed 194 times 1 $\begingroup$ I work for quite some time on a RL task which poses a surprising difficulty to the reinforcement learning agent to learn. A common approach to re-duce interaction time with the environment is to use reward shaping, which involves carefully de-signing reward functions that provide the agent in- In this section, we introduce the system, the environment model, and the RL algorithm we designed in this study. While this control has promising results, its application is limited to those who still have intact muscle function on the amputation site. doi: 10.2306/scienceasia1513-1874.2012.38.386, Ekkachai, K., Tungpimolrut, K., and Nilkhamhang, I. In this study, θK and derivative of knee angle, θK., are used as states, while the command voltage, v, is used as the action. Generally, the actuator in a microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee can be divided into two categories: semi-active and active mechanisms. First, another training strategy can be explored further to shorten the calculation time. Second, learning rate α need to be defined. Second, this study proposed a tabular-discretized Q-function stored in a Q-matrix. Several institutions have been developing the active knee for research and development purposes (Hoover et al., 2012; Lawson et al., 2014; Flynn et al., 2015). Control Syst. Syst. Particularly, this paper (Chai and Hayashibe, 2020) has explored deep RL for motion generation in a simulated environment. doi: 10.1109/TCYB.2019.2890974, Wen, Y., Si, J., Gao, X., Huang, S., and Huang, H. H. (2017). There are several areas that can be explored for future works. In this study, we investigated a model-free Q-learning control algorithm with a reward shaping function as the swing phase control in the MR damper-based prosthetic knee. 5, 1271–1278. email:ram.sagar@analyticsindiamag.com, Copyright Analytics India Magazine Pvt Ltd, Recurrent Neural Network in PyTorch for Text Generation, How This Startup Is Using AI To Become A One-Stop Shop For Every Educational Requirement, 8 Best Free Resources To Learn Deep Reinforcement Learning Using TensorFlow, Top 10 Frameworks For Reinforcement Learning An ML Enthusiast Must Know, Google Teases Large Scale Reinforcement Learning Infrastructure, A Deep Reinforcement Learning Model Outperforms Humans In Gran Turismo Sport, Machines That Don’t Kill: How Reinforcement Learning Can Solve Moral Uncertainties, How Reinforcement Learning Can Help In Data Valuation, Current reward learning algorithms have considerable limitations, The distance between reward functions is a highly informative addition for evaluation, EPIC distance compares reward functions directly, without training a policy, Webinar – Why & How to Automate Your Risk Identification | 9th Dec |, CIO Virtual Round Table Discussion On Data Integrity | 10th Dec |, Machine Learning Developers Summit 2021 | 11-13th Feb |. 232, 309–324.

Thus, Lu is set to be 1, and Ll could be set to any number larger than Lu to provide a variable negative reward. The user-adaptive control as investigated in Herr and Wilkenfeld (2003) is an example of an adaptive control that applied the MR damper-based prosthetic knee. One type of reward that always generates a low reward horizon is opportunity value. Consequently, in this study we focused on the control of prosthetic knee devices with a semi-active mechanism in a swing phase of the gait cycle. IEEE Trans. An active mechanism can generate a net positive force. The design and initial experimental validation of an active myoelectric transfemoral prosthesis. Reinforcement learning (RL) has enjoyed much recent suc- cess in domains ranging from game-playing to real robotics tasks. This model was simulated in MATLAB (Mathworks Inc., Natick, MA, USA) SimMechanics environment. (2007). The drawbacks of reinforcement learning include long convergence time, enormous training data size, and difficult reproduction. doi: 10.1109/TCST.2016.2643566, Sadhu, A. K., and Konar, A. Figure 1. (1991). In the second simulation, several values of learning rate α = [0.001, 0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 0.5, 0.9] are picked a priori to be simulated with a maximum 3000 iteration in a single speed simulation (mid speed of 3.6 km/h). The torque generated by each joint, derived from Lagrange equation, are governed by Equations (2) and (3), where MK and MH are the torques at knee and hip, respectively. Unique means that it can only be valid for the subject. Biomech. A novel approach to model magneto-rheological dampers using EHM with a feed-forward neural network. Therefore, from the cost-effective and functionality point of view, a semi-active prosthetic knee is still more favorable for the end user compared to the active mechanism. The advantages of using this control structure are that it can be trained online, and also it is a model-free control algorithm that does not require prior knowledge of the system to be controlled. Piston velocity and acceleration are used as inputs to estimate MR damper force. Rehabil. Thus, when neural network has been trained, it will not have a mechanism to adapt the model. Autom. B., and Hafner, B. J. The proposed controller was designed with the structure of a tabular reinforcement Q-learning algorithm, a subset in machine learning algorithms. IEEE Robot. (2013). The comparison of 2.4, 3.6, and 5.4 km/h walking speed are depicted in Figure 6 and Table 1. Lett. Of the many reward functions inducing the desired rollout in a given environment, only a small subset aligns with the user’s preferences. Generally, the prosthetic knee is divided into two categories, that is, a mechanical-based control and microprocessor controlled. Although there has not been a detailed study about the acceptable criterion in terms of the NRMSE performance index of the knee trajectory in a prosthetic knee, this study aims to mimic the biological knee trajectory, which is shown by PI. Recent reinforcement learning (RL) approaches have shown strong performance in complex do-mains such as Atari games, but are often highly sample inefficient. 24, 1169–1178. An agent executes an action, at, to the system and environment. User-adaptive control of a magnetorheological prosthetic knee. In this simulation, several values of learning rate are simulated to determine its effect on the number of iteration required to achieve best performance. This control structure also shows adaptability to various walking speeds. On the simulated environment, we have a Q-function block with input of multistate of knee angle from double pendulum model and updated by the reward function. (2019), the swing phase was divided into swing flexion and swing extension where the ADP tuner would tune the impedance parameters accordingly with respect to each state. CYBERLEGS Beta-Prosthesis active knee system. Higher learning rate, which if sets closer to 1, indicates that the Q-function is updated quickly per iteration, while the Q-function is never be updated if it is set to 0. We used 2.4, 3.6, and 5.4 km/h walking speed dataset, simulated separately with same value of randomized Q-matrix initialization. In this study, the control policy that we train is valid only for the subject whose data we used. We have shown that our proposed reward function demonstrated a trend of faster convergence compared to a single reward mechanism as depicted in Figure 4A. Reward shaping is a useful method to incorporate auxiliary knowledge safely. In Equation (6), βt is the specifically designed ratio of reward priority, n is the number of prediction horizon, and c is a constant that depends on n. In this study, n is set to 4; thus, c = 0.033 to be conveniently compared to the NNPC algorithm studied in Ekkachai and Nilkhamhang (2016) that set the prediction horizon to 4. (2012). Conversely, in this study, we employed the RL algorithm to control the output of the control voltage for the MR damper, resulting in only one simple output variable. However, several Sci. The proposed controller is then compared to the user-adaptive controller (Herr and Wilkenfeld, 2003) and the NNPC algorithm (Ekkachai and Nilkhamhang, 2016). For each learning rate, simulation was performed three times and average NRMSE for each learning rate were recorded. Learning is rewarded by better rewards that are secured faster and more efficiently. In this study, as only the control in the swing phase is discussed, the gait data used will be constrained into the swing phase only. The graphical description of this reward design is depicted in Figure 2C. Those two learning rates did also not show any significant performance changes over the constrained iteration. is set from −7 to 7° per unit of time with predefined 0.05 step size, thus resulting with 281 columns. Further, θ, ω, α, and g are the angle, angular velocity, angular acceleration, and gravitational constant at 9.8 m/s2, respectively. The reward function was designed as a function of the performance index that accounts for the trajectory of the subject-specific knee angle. (B) Double pendulum model to simulate swing phase with MR damper attachment with distance dMR from the knee joint. 2.1 Difference Rewards To use reinforcement learning in a multiagent system, it is important to reward an agent based on its contribution to the system. (A) Control structure of magnetorheological (MR) damper (Ekkachai et al., 2013). Unfortunately, this method is computationally expensive because it requires us to solve an RL problem. Further, Q-learning algorithm designed for this study is discussed in detail in section 2.2. A variable reward as a function of PI associating a decayed function, which is proposed as a reward function herein, has led to a better reward mechanism. (2016). In this study, prosthetic knee is actuated by MR damper having non-linear characteristics such as hysteresis and dynamic response that are difficult to control. In this study, the agent is the Q-function with a mathematical description, as shown in Equation (4). (2013). – Add rewards/penal-es for achieving sub-goals/errors: • subgoal: grasped-puck Meanwhile, the environment is defined as the application where the system was used; in this case, a simple double pendulum model was used as the simulated environment to perform swing phase on a gait cycle. The ADP-based RL algorithm resulted in 2.5° of RMSE on the robotic knee kinematics. Applying this insight to reward function analysis, the researchers at UC Berkeley and DeepMind developed methods to compare reward functions directly, without training a policy. The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. However, to make reinforcement learning useful for large-scale real-world applications, it is critical to be able to design reward functions that accurately and efciently de- … The best training process of this simulation over a total of 10 training processes is depicted in Figure 5.

The model consists of two FNNs. Med. Signals observed by Q-learning control were the states of knee angle and its derivatives, as well as the reward signal Rt that was given based on the performance of the controller to shape the control policy. In this simulation, the time interval is set to 20 ms; thus, the action or command voltage to the prosthetic knee is updated every 20 ms. 6:011005. doi: 10.1115/1.4005784, Kaufman, K.

This raises a need of online learning model that could adapt if users change walking pattern due to weight change or using different costume. Clin. To tackle this, the researchers introduce the Equivalent-Policy Invariant Comparison (EPIC). As also observed, a higher learning rate does not guarantee better performance, as inspected from α = 0.9, compared to α = [0.05, 0.1, 0.5]. 92, 66–80. IEEE Robot. The rollout method also produces false positives. (2017). The gait data used in this study are also normal gait data collected from Ekkachai and Nilkhamhang (2016) for convenience in comparison study of the controller. A finite state machine-based controller is often found in the powered knee (Wen et al., 2017). If the initial state distribution or transition dynamics change, misaligned rewards may induce undesirable policies. View all Since we proposed a RL-based algorithm, all the recorded knee angle data with a total of 200 sets per walking speed will be used. We trained this control algorithm to adapt to several walking speed datasets under one control policy and subsequently compared its performance with that of other control algorithms. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press. I have a master's degree in Robotics and I write about machine learning advancements. 1 Introduction Reinforcement learning (RL) is a promising approach to learning control policies for robotics tasks [5, 21, 16, 15]. Rewards are the motivation for an agent/computer to get better at a certain task, for example, in chess, the reward could be winning. Each will be reviewed in depth in the following sections. Changing the source code implementation in C language and using dedicated processing hardware could shorten the calculation time to be within the proposed control interval of 20 ms. However, sparse rewards also slow down learning because the agent needs to take many actions before getting any reward. 27, 460–465. The editor and reviewers' affiliations are the latest provided on their Loop research profiles and may not reflect their situation at the time of review. Summary of simulation results over a constrained iteration of 3000. The discounted factor is a variable that determines how the Q-function acts toward the reward. No use, distribution or reproduction is permitted which does not comply with these terms. Using Natural Language for Reward Shaping in Reinforcement Learning. reinforcement-learning-based AI systems become more general and autonomous, the design of reward mechanisms that elicit desired behaviours becomes both more important and more difficult. Our proposed control structure has also an overall better performance compared to user-adaptive control, while some of its walking speeds performed better than the neural network predictive control from existing studies. Further, s, a, α, and γ are the state, action, learning rate, and discounted rate, respectively, while subscript t denotes the time. The model was trained by using data from the experimental system of an actual MR damper, Lord RD-8040-1, described in Ekkachai et al. We study the effectiveness of the near-optimal cost-to-go oracle on the planning horizon and demonstrate that the cost-to-go oracle shortens the learner’s planning horizon as function of its accuracy: a On the right column, the policy has been trained through reinforcement learning and reward shaping, such that the shaping potential is a generative model that describes the demonstration data. Most real-world tasks have far more complex reward functions than this. The structure of the reward mechanism in the Q-learning algorithm used in this study is modified into a rationed multiple rewards as a function of time. As noted, these two methods have some weaknesses in this basic format: 1 Unlike Monte-Carlo methods, which reach a reward and then … Q-learning belongs to the tabular RL group in the machine learning algorithm. The average performance of our proposed method was 0.73 of NRMSE or was 1.59° if converted to average RMSE. Using the computational hardware mentioned at the previous section and source code implemented in MATLAB, the overall calculation and online update Q-function process consumed approximately 40.4 ms, while each evaluation of NNPC with pretrained swing phase model consumed approximately 13.2 ms (Ekkachai and Nilkhamhang, 2016). Figure 3. Further, δ, Lu, and Ll are the reward constants set arbitrarily to 0.01, performance limit to obtain the positive reward, and performance limit to obtain the lowest reward, respectively. Active 2 years ago. I have a master's degree in Robotics and I write…. The distance calculated using this approach can then be used to predict the outcome of using a certain reward function. Active lower limb prosthetics: a systematic review of design issues and solutions. There has been an attempt to unify the prosthetic controller through discrete Fourier transform virtual constraints (Quintero et al., 2017). The input of the reward function are the actual knee angle θK(t) and the desired knee angle θK(desired)(t) from experimental data. Although we cannot provide detailed comparison of our proposed method with another RL-based method in Wen et al. 26, 305–312. The lower limb prosthetic system, which comprises either the prosthetic knee, leg, or foot, could replace the function of the biological knee. However, owing to the high requirements of the actuation unit as well as the control system in terms of design and cost (Windrich et al., 2016), there has been only a few of the commercialized product in this category, such as the Power Knee (Össur, Iceland)1. m, I, d, and L are segment mass, moment of inertia at segment's center of mass, length measured from the proximal end of the segment to the center of mass, and segment length, respectively. Prior work usually evaluates the learned reward function using the “rollout method” where a. policy is trained to optimise the reward function. This occurrence happened because a faster walking speed generally indicates a short time in the gait cycle, resulting in a less swing-phase time. In this paper, we proposed a Lyapunov function based approach to shape the reward function which can effectively accelerate the training. The reward function was designed as a function of the performance index that accounts for the trajectory of the subject-specific knee angle. Smart Mater. The performance index used to evaluate this simulation is the normalized root mean squared error (NRMSE) as expressed in Equation (12), where ns is the number of samples in dataset. The effect of these learning rate to NRMSE is shown in Figures 4B,C. ... As soon as a machine learning system is unleashed in feedback with humans, that system is a reinforcement learning system, not a machine learning system. Success or failure in this case is determined by a certain performance index depending on the system and environment involved. Furthermore, EMG-based control has been investigated in several studies, such as in Hoover et al. Potential-based reward shaping in DQN reinforcement learning. Third is to test our proposed control strategy to other subjects and possibly to test a transfer learning approach from control policy that was learnt in this study for dataset from other subjects. Comparison between user adaptive, neural network predictive control (NNPC), and Q-learning control. Reinforcement Learning: An Introduction. 50, 2346–2356. 03/05/2019 ∙ by Prasoon Goyal, et al. Reportedly, using the microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee can improve the lower extremity joint kinetics symmetry, gait, and balance, as well as reduce the frequency of stumbling and falling, compared to using the mechanical or passive knee (Hafner et al., 2007; Kaufman et al., 2007, 2012; Sawers and Hafner, 2013). doi: 10.1108/01439910310457706, Hoover, C. D., Fulk, G. D., and Fite, K. B. The model consists of two links, that is, thigh and a lumped shank, as well as a foot segment, as depicted in Figure 1B. Magnetorheological (MR) damper is one of the examples that utilize this function by manipulating the strength of the magnetic field, which is applied to magnetic particles in a carrier fluid. The loss of this function such as in the case of transfemoral amputation could severely restrict movements. In this paper, we propose to combine imitation and reinforcement learning via the idea of reward shaping using an oracle. As the controller aims to mimic the biological knee trajectory in the swing phase, the reward will be given according to whether the prosthetic knee can follow the biological knee trajectory. (2012). LetF be the shaping function, thenR + F is the new reward. This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). Gait Post. YH contributed to algorithm design and development, data analysis and interpretation, and writing the first draft. • Solu-on: Reward shaping (intermediate rewards). Robot 30, 42–55. We found that our proposed reward shaping function leads to better performance in terms of normalized root mean squared error and also showed a faster convergence trend compared to a conventional single reward function. Putnam, C. A. Ethical review and approval was not required for the study on human participants in accordance with the local legislation and institutional requirements. Arch. Model-free reinforcement Q-learning control with a reward shaping function was proposed as the voltage controller of a magnetorheological damper based on the prosthetic knee. Note that δ, Lu, Ll, Rmax, and Rmin can be defined accordingly for other applications depending on the system being evaluated. EPIC distance is defined using Pearson distance as follows: Where, D: distance, R: rewards, S: current state, A: action performed, S1 : changed state. doi: 10.1109/TNNLS.2016.2584559, Windrich, M., Grimmer, M., Christ, O., Rinderknecht, S., and Beckerle, P. (2016). Section 3 presents the simulation and results. The reward shaping function is preferred to follow a decayed exponential function rather than a linear function to better train the Q-function to reach the state with the largest reward value, which can lead to faster convergence. Finally, Section 4 discusses the algorithm comparison, the limitations, and the future works of this study. A new powered lower limb prosthesis control framework based on adaptive dynamic programming. Abstract: Potential-based reward shaping (PBRS) is a particular category of machine learning methods which aims to improve the learning speed of a reinforcement learning agent by extracting and utilizing extra knowledge while performing a task. The advantages of using this system are the rapid response and low power consumption, among others (Şahin et al., 2010). Based on this distance, the torque generated at knee joint by the MR damper is calculated by Equation (1), where F^ is the force generated by MR damper (Figure 1A) and θK is the knee angle. Only going through enough explorations and then updated by associated rewards … In this simulation, the structure of the Q-matrix is a three-dimensional matrix consisting of l rows of state θK(t), m columns of state θK(t)., and n layers of action v. Q-matrix must cover all the states and actions available on the system. The double pendulum model is proposed as the environment model for the swing phase (Putnam, 1991). Science Asia 38, 386–393. The range of command voltage is set from 0 to 5 V with 0.1 resolution, resulting with 51 layers of action. Reward shaping is a method of incorporating domain knowl- edge into reinforcement learning so that the algorithms are guided faster towards more promising solutions. A continuous Q-function could also be explored to better cover all the states and actions. There are two conditions for the simulation to stop: first is if all the NRMSE of all trained speed falls under the defined PI criterion, and second is if all the trained speed converges into one final value of NRMSE for at least after 10 further iterations. The authors claim that this works even in an unseen test environment. If it is set closer to 0 means, it will only consider the instantaneous reward, while if it is set closer to 1, it strives more into the long-term higher rewards (Sutton and Barto, 2018). Reward design decides the robustness of an RL system. The voltage is converted into F^ following Figure 1A and passed on to the double pendulum model for swing phase simulation. Sci. Toward unified control of a powered prosthetic leg: a simulation study. Lastly, for the walking speed of 5.4 km/h, Q-learning performed the best with the lowest NRMSE of 0.52, compared with NNPC (2.42) and user-adaptive control (3.46). Gait asymmetry of transfemoral amputees using mechanical and microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knees. Improving the speed of convergence of multi-agent Q-learning for cooperative task-planning by a robot-team. Robot. The simulation was computed using IntelⓇ CoreTM i7 6th Generation 3.5 GHz processor with 8 GB RAM. The figure shows an experiment setting that provide kinematics data of the subject and a simulated environment where our proposed framework is tested. There are several parameters in Q-learning control that must be defined and optimized. However, the reward functions for most real-world tasks are difficult or impossible to procedurally specify. Indus. We concluded that the two lowest learning rate (α = 0.001 and α = 0.01) simulated with a constrained iteration of 3,000 performed the worst among other learning rates. The overall diagram of our study is depicted in Figure 3. We compared our proposed reward function to a conventional single reward function under the same random initialization of a Q-matrix. Several studies have tried to apply machine learning algorithm to control prosthetic (Ekkachai and Nilkhamhang, 2016; Wen et al., 2017, 2019). The Q-learning control comprised a Q-function that stores its value in a Q-matrix and a reward function following the reward shaping function proposed in this study. Model-free reinforcement Q-learning control with a reward shaping function was proposed as the voltage controller of a magnetorheological damper based on the prosthetic knee. Cybern.

The swing phase model was constructed following a feed-forward neural network structure in which the input and the output were the knee angle, control voltage, and prediction of future knee angle. Rewards — the principle of Reinforcement Learning. Slowest, mid, and fast walking speeds of 2.4, 3.6, and 5.4 km/h, respectively, are used for training. Sports Exerc.
