B-GAP: Behavior-Rich Simulation and Navigation for Autonomous Driving [article]

Angelos Mavrogiannis, Rohan Chandra, Dinesh Manocha
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Navigation in such environments is challenging due to unpredictability in agents' actions caused by their heterogeneous behaviors.  ...  Our enhanced behavior-rich simulator can be used for generating datasets that consist of trajectories corresponding to diverse driver behaviors and traffic densities, and our behavior-based navigation  ...  T . . . t d      TABLE II : II Comparison with Prior Work: We compare B-GAP with prior DRL-based navigation methods.  ...

Optimality Inductive Biases and Agnostic Guidelines for Offline Reinforcement Learning [article]

Lionel Blondé, Alexandros Kalousis, Stéphane Marchand-Maillet
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We attribute the asymmetry to the amount of inductive bias injected into the agent to entice it to posit that the behavior underlying the offline dataset is optimal for the task.  ...  method for which we need not know the quality of the data beforehand is more nuanced.  ...  Figure 3 : 3 Figure 3: Empirical evaluation of the (a) return and (b) gap (cf. EQ 1) of BASE and RTG. Runtime is 12 hours.  ...

Sensing and Filtering: A Fresh Perspective Based on Preimages and Information Spaces

Steven M. LaValle
2010 Foundations and Trends in Robotics  
The guiding principle in this paper is avoid sensing, representing, and encoding more than is necessary.  ...  The concepts and tools are motivated by many tasks of current interest, such as tracking, monitoring, navigation, pursuit-evasion, exploration, and mapping.  ...  The main issues that arise repeatedly in planning are: • Predictability: Are the effects of actions predictable in the I-space?  ...

Planning Under Sensing Uncertainty [chapter]

Steven M. LaValle
Planning Algorithms  
Therefore, the majority of this chapter focuses on planning algorithms designed for narrower classes of problems.  ...  Section 12.1 covers general-purpose algorithms, for which it will quickly be discovered that only problems with very few states can be solved because of the explosive growth of the I-space.  ...  (b) Gaps split or merge, depending on the direction. 4 . Merge: Two gaps merge into one because the robot crosses a bitangent ray in the oppose direction.  ...

A European Contract Law, or an EU Contract Law Regulation for Consumers?

Norbert Reich
2005 Journal of Consumer Policy  
The paper informs about initiatives of the EC Commission to create a set of instruments for advancing a European contract law, in particular a "common frame of reference."  ...  This behavior clearly poses dangers to public health.  ...  It summarised the existing acquis in private law (not only contract law) and put forward four options for action, namely: I. No action. II.  ...
