Teaching UAVs to Race Using UE4Sim *

Matthias Mueller, Vincent Casser, Neil Smith, Dominik Michels, Bernard Ghanem
We train a deep neural network to predict UAV controls from raw image data for the task of autonomous UAV racing.  ...  However, teaching UAVs to fly in challenging environments remains an unsolved problem, mainly due to the lack of data for training.  ...  For example, a physics-based computer game environment (Unity) has been used to teach a simulated bird to fly [16] .  ... 

UE4Sim: A Photo-Realistic Simulator for Computer Vision Applications

Matthias Mueller, Vincent Casser, Jean Lahoud, Neil Smith, Bernard Ghanem
We demonstrate the versatility of the simulator with two case studies: autonomous UAV-based tracking of moving objects and autonomous driving using supervised learning.  ...  We present a photo-realistic training and evaluation simulator (UE4Sim) with extensive applications across various fields of computer vision.  ...  For example, in [18] , a physics-based computer game environment (Unity) is used to teach a simulated bird to fly.  ...
