Abstract—This paper presents navigation for four-wheel Omni Robot using architecture deep reinforcement learning in an unknown environment. A deep reinforcement learning algorithm combines with effectively training data using stochastic gradient updates in order to connect a goal. The approach is simulated and visualized using Gazebo and is updated via policies trained by deep Q learning network. Using recent deep-learning techniques as the basis of the framework, our results indicate that it is capable of providing smooth navigation for the Omni robot in exploring unpredicted surroundings. Once extended to real-world operation, this framework could enable the Omni Robot to gain achievement for self-driving tasks.
