Abstract—The path planning of the mobile robots cannot be separated from the effectiveness of navigation and collisionfree motion. In addition, dynamic path planning of unknown environment has always been a challenge for mobile robots since lack of information for the surrounding environment. This paper proposes a Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) based collision free path planning architecture for mobile robots. As navigating the environment, the mobile robots can figure out the unknown environment through DRL and the predicted values of control parameters from DRL are used to inputs for the mobile robots in the next time step. In addition, the architecture does not need any supervision. The experimental results of the architecture is compared to wellknown approaches and shows that the architecture can be successfully applied to solve the complex navigation problem in the dynamic environments.
