The problem of path-finding is investigated using a reinforcement connectionist system able to find and learn feasible paths. The learning phase is a stochastic trial and error procedure from performance feedback. These concepts are described and applied with the objective of real-time decision. The paper presents the problem formulation, the system architecture and the learning algorithm. Experimental results are given, including robustness aspects and generalisation capabilities.
