USING OPENAI WITH ROS
A FRAMEWORK FOR USING OPENAI WITH ROS
We are going to present the openai_ros package and show a live demo on the screen of how it works using Gazebo simulations.
The openai_ros package integrates the OpenAI gym environment into ROS, allowing to use all its algorithms and classes inside ROS environments, in a very simple and easy way, and removing the burden to integrate the OpenAI environment into the Gazebo robots.
With the openai_ros package we have achieved to compartmentalize the use of reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms for training ROS robots to three degrees of implication, depending on which level the roboticist needs to take part.
The definition of those levels allows to simplify the use of OpenAI infrastructure with ROS robots
