Stop the experiment by lua code

Postby FrankVig » Tue Feb 01, 2022 7:27 pm

I implemented the episodic Q-Learning algorithm and I want to stop the experiment in progress (by lua code) when the footbot reaches the goal state (checked by goal test). It is useful because I run multiple experiments automatically using a bash script.

So, I want to call the destroy() function inside the step() function. Is it possible?

You do it in the loop functions, not in the robot controller. You reimplement the loop function method "IsExperimentFinished()", as shown in the embedding examples. No robot can single-handedly stop the simulation.
I made ARGoS.
