Get example encoder function for the given spec.

Given a spec, returns an example encoder function. The example encoder function takes a nest of np.array feature values as input and returns a TF Example proto.


spec = { 'lidar': array_spec.ArraySpec((900,), np.float32), 'joint_positions': { 'arm': array_spec.ArraySpec((7,), np.float32), 'hand': array_spec.BoundedArraySpec((3, 3), np.int32, -1, 1) }, }

example_encoder = get_example_encoder(spec) serialized = example_encoder({ 'lidar': np.zeros((900,), np.float32), 'joint_positions': { 'arm': np.array([0.0, 1.57, 0.707, 0.2, 0.0, -1.57, 0.0], np.float32), 'hand': np.ones((3, 3), np.int32) }, })

The returned example encoder function requires that the feature nest passed has the shape and exact dtype specified in the spec. For example, it is an error to pass an array with np.float64 dtype where np.float32 is expected.
