Other Components Of the Neodroid Platform


  • My iterations per second are maxed out at ~60..
    • Ensure that you have disabled vsync, for bumblebee users on linux you can use vblank_mode=0 optirun ...
  • Why was this tool created, what does it serve and not just use Unity's own RL framework?
    • This project is very similar to Unity's own project Unity Machine Learning Agents. The most of the efforts done in this project were made prior to their announcement, Introducing: Unity Machine Learning Agents. The entire Neodroid platform served and still serves as a tool for academic research specific to the authors interests, hence explaining to the existence and future direction of this project.
