WiseMove: A Framework to Investigate Safe Deep Reinforcement Learning for Autonomous Driving
WiseMove is a platform to investigate safe deep reinforcement learning (DRL) in the context of motion planning for autonomous driving. It adopts a modular architecture that mirrors our autonomous vehicle software stack and can interleave learned and programmed components. Our initial investigation focuses on a state-of-the-art DRL approach from the literature, to quantify its safety and scalability in simulation, and thus evaluate its potential use on our vehicle.
