                          • Creating Human-Like Driving Behaviors in Traffic Simulations, using real world data distributions

                          • This article is a follow-up of a previously published blog post titled as “Accelerated Development of Learned Agents for Urban Autonomous Driving” (please see [1]). It deepens the explanation of our behavior-based actor controller that reproduces the human-like behaviors. This actor controller is mainly intended for reproducing learning scenes in driving simulators from which our […]
                          • Accelerated Development of Learned Agents for Urban Autonomous Driving

                          • Driving in an urban environment requires robust decision-making in complex situations. We often find ourselves turning at an intersection, yielding to a pedestrian, while allowing oncoming traffic to pass through. Sometimes we have to change lanes into a tight spot knowing that the vehicle behind us is going to slow down. At other times, we […]
