In my ongoing quest of improving NeoRL to produce a generic intelligent reinforcement learning agent, I created a demo I would like to share. It’s a simple demo, but still interesting in my opinion.
The agent receives 1D vision data (since the game is 2D), and must drive a car around a thin track. This is essentially a “thread the needle” task, where the AI requires relatively precise control in order to obtain reward.
As a human, I was not able to make it as far as the AI did. The AI almost completed the entire track, I was only able to make it about half-way. It looks easy, but it’s not!
Training time: About 2 minutes.
Here is a video of the car being controlled by NeoRL:
Until next time!
