This paper describes TESEO, an autonomous mobile robot controlled by a neural network. TESEO operates in an unknown indoor environment. Its task is to move efficiently and in real time from an initial location to a goal location. The goal location is specified in relative Cartesian coordinates with respect to the starting location. Experimental results are presented to support the claim that an autonomous mobile robot equipped with low-resolution sensors learns efficient reactive motor skills in a few trials. The robot acquires these motor skills through reinforcement learning.
