Autonomous Navigation Systems Information Session

January 25, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

Join us and learn about our newest project which introduces state-of-the-art methods in autonomous systems, specifically machine vision, state estimation, control and planning.


Autonomous Navigation Systems

Autonomous Navigation Systems will have a major impact on many industries beyond self-driving personal vehicles, including e-commerce, logistics, warehousing, manufacturing, healthcare and other service industries. Much of the recent progress is due to advances in machine learning and sensing components, such as cameras, lidars or ultra-wideband.

By signing up to this project, participants will learn how to:

  • Design efficient, lightweight algorithms that predict in real time while accounting for hardware limitations
  • Design systems that understand the environment and perform motion planning by integrating multiple sensors 
  • Understand the limitations of these operating systems

For more details on the project’s structure and timeline, please refer the Autonomous Navigation Systems – Brochure

Facilitated by Angela Schoellig
