This project is realized with the support of CINQ as part of the Emerge research project with LabXmodal (Concordia Univeristy, Montréal), IDMIL (McGill University, Montréal) and Moment Factory (Montréal).

Objectives

  1. 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
  2. Well-managed on AVR chips

    • Low memory trace (Flash and SRAM)
    • Static allocation
  3. Modular

    • Agent can stay the same while environments are exchanged
    • eg. easy switch of reward function (reinforcement learning)
  4. Multi-paradigm

    • Procedural
    • FSM
    • Reinforcement learning

Compiling

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.

Installing

See INSTALL file for installation procedure on standard (PC) platform.
