- Allow to easily switch between different environments
- Two modes: simulation (computer) vs embedded (AVR).
- The agent should stay the same.
- Interchangeable environment simulation vs embedded
- Easy switch between the two modes
- Well-managed on AVR chips
- Low memory trace (Flash and SRAM)
- Static allocation
- Agent can stay the same while environments are exchanged
- eg. easy switch of reward function (reinforcement learning)
- Reinforcement learning
Standard build (eg. on i386 platforms): $ scons
Build for AVR (release mode): $ scons platform=avr mode=release
Build for Arduino (debug mode): $ scons platform=arduino mode=debug
Cleaning up (example): $ scons platform=arduino --clean
To compile examples, go to the example folder and run scons. The qualia library needs to be compiled first.
See INSTALL file for installation procedure on standard (PC) platform.
