Abstract: Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) algorithms are used in many challenging tasks and their usage areas are rapidly increasing. One of these areas is the formation flights of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The rising of Reinforcement Learning (RL) algorithms performances is directly proportional to the development of environments. This paper presents a new environment developed through software (Ardupilot, Mavlink, drone-kit) that is frequently used in open source UAV simulation and programming, and the performance of the Evolutionary Reinforcement Learning (ERL) agent in this environment. The difference of this environment is that, unlike other environments, the model can be operated directly on a drone-kit supported vehicle and is specifically defined on the centralised formation task. The aim of this study is; in order to question the performance of the Evolutionary Reinforcement Learning (ERL) algorithm which has better results than other algorithms in DRL training environments,in this environment, and increasing the usage of the algorithm in this direction.
