Learning to Drive a Bicycle Using Reinforcement Learning and Shaping

  title={Learning to Drive a Bicycle Using Reinforcement Learning and Shaping},
  author={Jette Randl\ov and Preben Alstr\om},
We present and solve a real-world problem of learning to drive a bicycle. We solve the problem by online reinforcement learning using the Sarsa( )-algorithm. Then we solve the composite problem of learning to balance a bicycle and then drive to a goal. In our approach the reinforcement function is independent of the task the agent tries to learn to solve.
