Autonomous Vehicle Control using Reinforcement Learning

In this article, we are going to explore an application of an autonomous driving vehicle using reinforcement learning. First, we introduce the basic theory behind the control system of an autonomous ground vehicle (AGV). Then we simulate some AGV examples using an open source library denominated Python Robotics. Finally, we present how we can optimize…
