[4] to control a car in the TORCS racing simula- This project implements reinforcement learning to generate a self-driving car-agent with deep learning network to maximize its speed. This study proposes a framework for human-like autonomous car-following planning based on deep reinforcement learning (deep RL). To solve this problem, this paper proposes a human-like autonomous driving strategy in an end-toend control framework based on deep deterministic policy gradient (DDPG). However, the existing autonomous driving strategies mainly focus on the correctness of the perception-control mapping, which deviates from the driving logic that human drivers follow. With the development of deep representation learning, the domain of reinforcement learning (RL) has become a powerful learning framework now capable of learning complex policies in high dimensional environments. The mapping relationship between traffic images and vehicle operations was obtained by an end-to-end decision-making framework established by convolutional neural networks. ...

Model-free Deep Reinforcement Learning for Urban Autonomous Driving. This project implements reinforcement learning to generate a self-driving car-agent with deep learning network to maximize its speed. Learning-based methods—such as deep reinforcement learning—are emerging as a promising approach to automatically 2 Prior Work The task of driving a car autonomously around a race track was previously approached from the perspective of neuroevolution by Koutnik et al. Instead Deep Reinforcement Learning is goal-driven. They converted continuous sensor values into discrete state-action pairs with the use of a quantization method and took into account some of the responses from other vehicles. In these applications, the action space In this paper, we propose a deep reinforcement learning scheme, based on deep deterministic policy gradient, to train the overtaking actions for autonomous vehicles. However, these success is not easy to be copied to autonomous driving because the state spaces in real world are extreme complex and action spaces are continuous and fine control is required. reinforcement learning framework to address the autonomous overtaking problem. Model-free Deep Reinforcement Learning for Urban Autonomous Driving Abstract: Urban autonomous driving decision making is challenging due to complex road geometry and multi-agent interactions. The framework uses a deep deterministic policy gradient (DDPG) algorithm to learn three types of car-following models, DDPGs, DDPGv, and DDPGvRT, from historical driving data. Abstract.

A deep reinforcement learning framework for autonomous driving was proposed bySallab, Abdou, Perot, and Yogamani(2017) and tested using the racing car simulator TORCS. Multi-vehicle and multi-lane scenarios, however, present unique chal-lenges due to constrained navigation and unpredictable vehicle interactions. Motivated by the successful demonstrations of learning of Atari games and Go by Google DeepMind, we propose a framework for autonomous driving using deep reinforcement learning. Multi-Agent Connected Autonomous Driving using Deep Reinforcement Learning Praveen Palanisamy praveen.palanisamy@{microsoft, outlook}.com Abstract The capability to learn and adapt to changes in the driving environment is crucial for developing autonomous driving systems that are scalable beyond geo-fenced oper-ational design domains. 15 A Practical Example of Reinforcement Learning A Trained Self-Driving Car Only Needs A Policy To Operate Vehicle’s computer uses the final state-to-action mapping… (policy) to generate steering, braking, throttle commands,… (action) based on sensor readings from LIDAR, cameras,… (state) that represent road conditions, vehicle position,… To address sample efficiency and safety during training, it is common to train Deep RL policies in a simulator and then deploy to the real world, a process called Sim2Real transfer.
