12/08/2019 ∙ by Óscar Gil Viyuela, et al. In [10] and [11], the authors presented a Q-learning algorithm to solve the autonomous navigation problem of UAVs. A. Graves, M. Riedmiller, A. K. Fidjeland, G. Ostrovski, S. Petersen, in deep reinforcement learning [5] inspired end-to-end learning of UAV navigation, mapping directly from monocular images to actions. This paper can serve as a simple framework for using RL to enable UAVs to work in an environment where its model is unavailable. Thus, the reward function is composed of two terms: target guidance reward and obstacle penalty. Reinforcement learning (RL) could help overcome this issue by allowing a UAV or a team of UAVs to learn and navigate through the changing environment without the need for modeling. However, to the best of our knowledge, there are not many papers discussing about using RL algorithm for UAVs in high-level context, such as navigation, monitoring or other complex task-based applications. A reward function is designed to guide the UAV toward its destination while penalizing any crash. In this paper is proposed an inclusion of the Social Force Model (SFM) i...

Similar to our simulation, it took the UAV 38 episodes to find out the optimal course of actions (8 steps) to reach to the goal from a certain starting position (Figure 11). Traditional control methods, such as potential field [17, 18], are available to solve such problem. Since RL algorithms can rely only on the data obtained directly from the system, it is a natural option to consider for our problem. It is shown that the UAV smartly selects paths to reach its target while avoiding obstacles either by crossing over or deviating them. The goal is to train the UAV to fly safely from any arbitrary starting position to reach any destination in the considered area with continuous action space.
