This paper is concerned with the observer designing problem for a class of uncertain delayed nonlinear systems using reinforcement learning. Reinforcement learning is used via two Wavelet Neural networks (WNN), critic WNN and action WNN, which are combined to form an adaptive WNN controller. The “strategic” utility function is approximated by the critic WNN and is minimized by the action WNN. Adaptation laws are developed for the online tuning of wavelets parameters. By Lyapunov approach, the uniformly ultimate boundedness of the closed-loop tracking error is verified. Finally, a simulation example is shown to verify the effectiveness and performance of the proposed method.
