Dreaming mechanism for training bio-inspired driving agents

This paper addresses one of the key ideas embraced by the European funded H2020 research project Dreams4Cars: to borrow resemblances from the way humans learn to drive. We developed an artifi cial driving agent, called “Co-driver”, characterized by an architecture mimicking the fundamental components of the human brain involved in the learning of complex sensorimotor abilities, like driving. We implemented a dream-like mechanism to train and test the self-driving agent, and we will show two case studies demonstrating the effectiveness of such approach.
