Vitesco Technologies Applies Deep Reinforcement Learning in Powertrain Control

“Reinforcement Learning Toolbox considerably reduced development time. The toolbox really helped in fast prototyping and generation of reinforcement learning agents.”

​-Vivek Venkobarao, Vitesco




Vitesco Technologies, which develops electrification technologies for all types of vehicles, has applied deep reinforcement learning for closed-loop powertrain control. Powertrain control systems must be able to handle a huge variety of environmental conditions. Global climate change and more stringent emission laws require faster development time, including accelerated prototyping.

Vitesco engineers used Simulink® to create a detailed model of the plant. Reinforcement Learning Toolbox™ enabled to quickly prototype, generate, and optimize reinforcement learning agents, considerably reducing development time.
