### Abstract

Robots moving in a crowd occasionally reach situations where they need to decide whether to give way to a human or not, a situation we call a micro-conflict and model with a two player game. We collect data from a robot controlled by a human operator and use three different supervised learning algorithms (random forest, SVM and neuro-evolution) to create a decision maker module which imitates the human operator's behavior in micro-conflicts. Results show that the neuro-evolution based decision-maker gives the best performance under scenarios with various crowd density and urgency. In addition, we found that the neuro-evolution method generalizes better to environments very different from those in the training set.
