This paper examines the suitability of Lego
Mindstorms robotic kits as a platform for teaching the
concepts of reinforcement learning. The reinforcement
learning algorithm Sarsa was implemented on board an
autonomous Mindstorms robot, and applied to two
learning tasks. The reasons behind the differing results
obtained on these two tasks are discussed, and several
issues related to the suitability of Mindstorms as a
platform for teaching or experimentation with
reinforcement learning are identified.
