2020 arXiv   pre-print
We present PDDLGym, a framework that automatically constructs OpenAI Gym environments from PDDL domains and problems. Observations and actions in PDDLGym are relational, making the framework particularly well-suited for research in relational reinforcement learning and relational sequential decision-making. PDDLGym is also useful as a generic framework for rapidly building numerous, diverse benchmarks from a concise and familiar specification language. We discuss design decisions and

We hope that PDDLGym will facilitate bridge-building between the reinforcement learning community (from which Gym emerged) and the AI planning community (which produced PDDL). We look forward to gathering feedback from all those interested and expanding the set of available environments and features accordingly. Code: https://github.com/tomsilver/pddlgym
