Welcome to “Principles of Safe Autonomy” (ECE 498 SMA), Spring 2020 edition. In this class, you will dive into algorithms for building autonomous systems (e.g., path planning, particle filtering, lane detection, and safety verification), play with cool software tools (e.g., ROS, Gazebo, OpenAI gym), and get to deploy your code on a real car! The class meets Mondays and Wednesdays 2-3:20 pm at ECEB 3015.
New this year: Lab sections for you to work on programming assignments and projects, Polaris GEM platform for deploying code!
