PEDRA — Programmable Engine for Drone Reinforcement Learning Applications

What is PEDRA?

PEDRA is a programmable engine for Drone Reinforcement Learning (RL) applications. The engine is developed in Python and is module-wise programmable. PEDRA is targeted mainly at goal-oriented RL problems for drones, but can also be extended to other problems such as SLAM, etc. The engine interfaces with the Unreal gaming engine using AirSim to create the complete platform. The figure below shows the complete block diagram of the engine. Unreal Engine is used to create 3D realistic environments for the drones to be trained in. Different levels of details can be added to make the environment look as realistic or as required as possible. PEDRA comes equipped with a list of 3D realistic environments that can be selected by the user. Once the environment is selected, it is interfaced with PEDRA using AirSim. AirSim is an open-source plugin developed by Microsoft that interfaces Unreal Engine with Python. It provides basic python functionalities controlling the sensory inputs and control signals of the drone. PEDRA is built onto the low-level python modules provided by AirSim creating higher-level python modules for the purpose of drone RL applications.

PEDRA Workflow

The complete workflow of PEDRA can be seen in the Figure below. The engine takes input from a config file (.cfg). This config file is used to define the problem and the algorithm for solving it. It is algorithmic specific and is used to define algorithm related parameters. Right now the supported problem is camera-based autonomous navigation and the supported algorithms are single drone vanilla RL, single drone PER/DDQN based RL. More problems and associated algorithms are being added. The most important feature of PEDRA is the high-level python modules that can be used as building blocks to implement multiple algorithms for drone oriented applications. The user can either select from the above-mentioned algorithms or can create their own using these building blocks. In case the user wants to define their own problem and associated algorithm, these building blocks can be used. Once these requirements are set, the simulation can begin. PyGame screen can be used to control simulation parameters such as pausing the simulation, modifying algorithmic or training parameters, overwrite config file, and save the current state of the simulation, etc. PEDRA generates a number of output files. The log file keeps track of the simulation state per iteration listing useful algorithmic parameters. This is particularly useful when troubleshooting the simulation. Tensorboard can be used to visualize the training plots in run-time. These plots are particularly useful to monitor training parameters and to change the input parameters using the PyGame screen if need be.

Creating a side-scroller mobile game with Unreal Engine 4 (Part 7)

In the final part of our series (we’ve arrived!) we’ll add some polish to our game. To do this, we’ll refine our level by adding a menu system (main and pause menus), which is a necessary part of any game. We will also add background sound to our game.

Before proceeding forward, a quick recap. We started by learning Unreal basics—how to navigate and create a HUD (heads up display). We also created some enemy AI and winning and losing mechanisms. We even tested the game on an Android device. These are core components of any mobile side-scroller game. In this final part we’ll polish our game so that it can be presentable.

You can find the other parts of the series here.


Personalization, instant expertise, game-changing user experiences — these are just a few of the values machine learning can add to mobile apps. Subscribe to the Fritz AI Newsletter to discover more.


Main Menu

Open the content browser and navigate to the maps folder. The idea behind creating a main menu is pretty similar to creating a level/map. If you think about it, a main-menu is also a type of level/map. The function of the menu is to list options and load our gameplay levels.

Go to the content browser panel and navigate to the Maps folder (Content->SideScrollerBp->Maps). Right click on the Maps folder, click “Level”, and name it “MainMenu”. Open it by pressing Enter.

When you open the level you will see a black screen in viewport (that’s normal). This level is empty it has nothing inside it. That’s exactly what we want for our menu. We only want to display buttons that can perform some action or another.

Switch over to the Blueprints folder (Content->SideScrollerBP->Blueprints) and create a new widget blueprint and name it “Menu”. Double click to open it.

If you remember from previous articles, we used widget blueprints to display information such as time, coins, and health. We can also create buttons that can perform various actions.

Add 2 buttons and 2 text fields on the canvas. You can probably see where this is going…

We’re aiming for a quite simple main menu that has only 2 buttons: “Play” and “Quit”.

Change the text to “Play” for first button and “Quit” for the second button. Change their properties, as shown below (both buttons should have the same properties, except for their texts). You can change the font to your personal preference, but keep in mind it should not overflow the button.

Highlight the “Play” button and add an “on clicked” property. The “on clicked” property is used to perform an action when a button is clicked. This action can be anything—in our case, we want to open a level.

Drag a node from the button and type “open level”.

Type the level name — “SideScrollerExampleMap”. Hit compile and save.

Here, we’re specifying which level well be opened when the “Play” button is clicked—hence the name “SideScrollerExampleMap”. If you go into the Maps folder, you’ll find your level names there.

You can change the name of the level by pressing F2. (If you change the level/map name make sure to change it in “open level”, too)

Now click on “Quit” button and select add another “on clicked” event. This time we want to exit our game.

Bring out the node from the button and type “Quit game”.
