This work presents a deep reinforcement learning framework for interactive navigation in a crowded place. Our proposed approach, Learning to Balance (L2B) framework enables mobile robot agents to steer safely towards their destinations by avoiding collisions with a crowd, while actively clearing a path by asking nearby pedestrians to make room, if necessary, to keep their travel efficient. We observe that the safety and efficiency requirements in crowd-aware navigation have a trade-off in thearXiv:2003.09207v2 fatcat:4la6sg6kxze7hpvhyp3reiyalq
