The goal of this post is to capture my progress in learning of object reaching on my iCub.
Suppose iCub stands in the front of the object, which is placed on a table, so the robot can reach it without moving other joints than these on one arm.
iCub has to set its arm joint angles (DoF) so that the hand is as closer to the object as possible (it reaches the object).
We use the Reinforcement Learning method of Machine learning (actually its Actor-Critic Learning Automaton specialization) to train iCub reaching objects.

I have found some C++ examples, tutorials and toolboxes for Reinforcement Learning.
