Intro to Self Driving Cars
Skills Covered: Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Vehicle Motion, Control, Bayesian Thinking, Data Structures
ABOUT THIS NANODEGREE
This program has been created for those who are passionate about self-driving cars and dream about getting a chance to work on them. During the course, you will learn the fundamentals of building a self-driving car.
You will master your Python and C++ skills (you will translate programs written in Python into C++) and learn how to apply matrices and calculus in code. The course also includes some basics of machine learning and computer vision, among the others, you’ll find out how to use machine learning to teach a machine to identify images programmatically. You will also explore algorithmic thinking and complex data structures. Students appreciate that the program has enabled them to practice putting all the skills to work on real-world projects. The course takes around four months to complete.
If you want to enroll, make sure you feel quite good about reading and modifying code, as well as basic algebra.
Researchers estimate driverless cars will save 10 million lives per decade!
Most innovative tech companies admit that there is a high shortage of engineers in self-driving areas. An Autonomous System Engineer might soon be one of the most desired positions.
