With the rapidly growing expansion in the use of UAVs, the ability to autonomously navigate in varying environments and weather conditions remains a highly desirable but as-of-yet unsolved challenge. In this work, we use Deep Reinforcement Learning to continuously improve the learning and understanding of a UAV agent while exploring a partially observable environment, which simulates the challenges faced in a real-life scenario...
