We analyze the internal representations that deep Reinforcement Learning (RL) agents form of their environments and whether these representations correspond to what such agents should ideally learn. The purpose of this comparison is both a better understanding of why certain algorithms or network architectures perform better than others and the...

The combination of reinforcement learning and deep neural networks has the potential to train intelligent autonomous agents on high dimensional sensory inputs, with applications in flight control. However, the amount of samples needed by these methods is often too large to use real-world interaction. In this work, mirror-descent guided policy...

Identifying the most efficient exploration approach for deep reinforcement learning in traffic light control is not a trivial task, and can be a critical step in the development of reinforcement learning solutions that can effectively reduce traffic congestion. It is common to use baseline dithering methods such as $\epsilon$-greedy. However,...

A recent advancement in Reinforcement Learning is the capability of modelling opponents. In this work, we are interested in going back to basics and testing this capability within the Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma, a simple method for modelling multi agent systems. Using the self modelling advantage actor critic model, we set up a single agent...

Traffic congestion is a problem of tremendous size that affects many people. Using Reinforcement Learning to find a light control policy can ease traffic congestion and decrease travel time for vehicles. This paper specifically looks at the effect of using different reward functions for training agents. We highlight how the learnabilty of a...

Reinforcement Learning (RL) is a learning paradigm where an agent learns a task by trial and error. The agent needs to explore its environment and by simultaneously receiving rewards it learns what is appropriate behaviour.<br/>Even though it has roots in machine learning, RL is essentially different from other machine learning methods. In...

This work addresses the problem of exploration and coverage using visual inputs. Exploration and coverage is a fundamental problem in mobile robotics, the goal of which is to explore an unknown environment in order to gain vital information. Some of the diverse scenarios and applications in which exploratory robots can have a significant impact...

A lot research has been conducted in the field of autonomous navigation of mobile robots with focus on Robot Vision and Robot Motion Planning. However, most of the classical navigation solutions require several steps of data pre-processing and hand tuning of parameters, with separate modules for vision, localization, planning and control. All...

Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) enables us to design controllers for complex tasks with a deep learning approach. It allows us to design controllers that are otherwise cumbersome to design with conventional control methodologies. Often, an objective for RL is binary in nature. However, exploring in environments with sparse rewards is a problem...

Online Adaptive Flight Control is interesting in the context of growing complexity of aircraft systems and their adaptability requirements to ensure safety. An Incremental Approximate Dynamic Programming (iADP) controller combines reinforcement learning methods, optimal control and Online identified incremental model to achieve optimal adaptive...

In today’s scenario due to rapid urbanisation there has been a shift of population from rural to urban areas especially in developing countries in search of better opportunities. This has lead to unprecedented growth of cities leading to various urbanisation problems. One of the main problems that comes across in urban areas is the increased...

Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) is a generalization of classical linear programming where we restrict some (or all) variables to take integer values. Numerous real-world problems can be modeled as MILPs, such as production planning, scheduling, network design optimization and many more. MILPs are, in fact, NP-hard. State-of-the-art...

A Taxi Dispatch Problem involves assigning taxis to requests of passengers who are waiting at different locations for a trip. In today's economy and society, the Taxi Dispatch Problem and other transport problems can be found everywhere. Not only in transporting people, but also in food delivery from restaurants and package delivery for all kind...

Reinforcement Learning (RL) focuses on maximizing the returns (discounted rewards) throughout the episodes, one of the main challenges when using it is that it is inadequate for safety-critical tasks due to the possibility of transitioning into critical states while exploring. Safe Reinforcement Learning (SafeRL) is a subset of RL that focuses...

Reinforcement learning is used as a type of adaptive flight control. Adaptive Critic Design (ACD) is a popular approach for online reinforcement learning control due to its explicit generalization of the policy evaluation and the policy improvement elements. A variant of ACD, Incremental Dual Heuristic Programming (IDHP) has previously been...

Reinforcement learning (RL) enables the autonomous formation of optimal, adaptive control laws for systems with complex, uncertain dynamics. This process generally requires a learning agent to directly interact with the system in an online fashion. However, if the system is safety-critical, such as an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), learning may...

The control of aircraft can be carried out by Reinforcement Learning agents; however, the difficulty of obtaining sufficient training samples often makes this approach infeasible. Demonstrations can be used to facilitate the learning process, yet algorithms such as Apprenticeship Learning generally fail to produce a policy that outperforms the...

Reinforcement learning (RL) is a model-free adaptive approach to learn a non-linear control law for flight control. However, for flat-RL (FRL) the size of the search space grows exponentially with the number of states, resulting in low sample efficiency. This research aims to improve the efficiency with Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning (HRL)....

Model-free reinforcement learning has proved to be successful in many tasks such as robotic manipulator, video games, and even stock trading. However, as the dynamics of the environment is unmodelled, it is fundamentally difficult to ensure the learned policy to be absolutely reliable and its performance is guaranteed. In this thesis, we borrow...

Machine Learning Control is a control paradigm that applies Artificial Intelligence methods to control problems. Within this domain, the field of Reinforcement Learning (RL) is particularly promising, since it provides a framework in which a control policy does not have to be programmed explicitly, but can be learned by an intelligent controller...
