Why learn Intro to Self-Driving Cars
By 2020 the autonomous vehicle market will be worth AU$120 billion (Accenture) - we cannot ignore the role that autonomous vehicles will play both here in Australia and on a global stage. This is Australia’s first dedicated online short course committed to educating the next wave of future engineers. This course will teach you the fundamentals of building a self-driving car with only minimal programming experience. You will learn both Python and C++ , providing you with an exhilarating first step into this exciting world.
How does it work
This course will introduce you to all the tools vital for self-driving car engineers. You will learn how a computer sees an image and how to use machines to teach a computer to identify images programmatically. During the 4 months, you’ll get to practise how to write code for self-driving cars, and plan and visualise the trajectory for it.
Included in the course is a site visit to Bosch Australia, where you will have the opportunity to learn from a leading industry partner about the challenges and opportunities within the ecosystem.
Bayesian Thinking, C++, algorithmic thinking, object-oriented programming, linear algebra, Python's visualisation libraries for trajectory planning, machine learning and computer vision.
