What if you became a Self-Driving Car Engineer?

It's Tuesday, you're just out of a wonderful demo with the Mayor. They're ready to purchase an autonomous shuttle service from your company!
Back to the office, you sit down and start working on your new 3D Perception algorithm... already imagining how many lives it will save...

It's all possible, but how? There are so many keywords, companies, strategies, algorithms, jobs... When I started, I was losing my mind...

Did you try reading blog posts? Following companies? Learning on YouTube? Taking courses? Where did it get you? Are you closer to become a self-driving car engineer now than you were last month?

Think Autonomous' Self-Driving Car Strategy in 3 Steps

  1. Break Down the whole thing into subskills.
  2. Learn as much as possible about each subskill.
  3. Practice one skill at a time, in a laser-focused strategy.

This course is about Step 1 and 2. In a few hours, we'll break down the field, learn a lot about each part; and define your action plan to learn about getting a job in the field.

1 - Building a Self-Driving Car

We'll start with the fundamentals: how to make a car autonomous? What are the key aspects of autonomous driving? What are the companies? Their strategies? And many more...

Concepts: Design (Levels of Autonomy, Drive-By-Wire, Hardware Architecture, Cost, Actors), Sensors (GPS, Cameras, LiDARs, RADARs), Computers, Market Strategies, Costs, ...

2 - How do self-driving cars work?

The second part of the course teaches the software: Where is Artificial Intelligence in a self-driving car? What are the algorithms used by engineers in the field? What is real and what isn't?

Concepts: Architecture of a Self-Driving Car,  Lane Line detection, Object Detection in 2D and 3D, LiDAR detection, Sensor Fusion, Neural Networks, Bayesian Filters, Kalman Filters localization, RTK localization, Mapping, Ultra-wideband, Dijkstra, A*, Trajectory Planning, PID Control, V2X, ROS, ...

3 - Defining your Strategy from 0 to 1

Once you know how self-driving cars work and what are all the paths you can take, we'll study a Roadmap that will guide you to a real profession. 

Who do you want to be? You'll go back with a real action plan the curriculum that worked for me.

Better Every Month

To match industry progress and advances, the course is updated every month.
