Chieko Sarah Imai, Minghao Zhang, Yuchen Zhang, Marcin Kierebinski, Ruihan Yang, Yuzhe Qin, Xiaolong Wang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Our key insight is that aside from the discrepancy in the domain gap, in visual appearance between the simulation and the real world, the latency from the control pipeline is also a major cause of difficulty  ...  We demonstrate the robot can smoothly maneuver at a high speed, avoid the obstacles, and show significant improvement over the baselines.  ...  To simulate the perception latency for visual observation at a lower frequency, we obtain the simulated visual observation at every control step and store the near past frames into a queue.  ...
