Home – Spring 2021

Welcome to ECE484: Principles of Safe Autonomy, Spring 2021 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 synchronously Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am – 12:20pm via Zoom. Lecture videos will be made available online.

Directors: Sayan Mitra and Katherine Driggs-Campbell

Content contributors: Qichao Gao, Aamir Hasan, Minghao Jiang, Pulkit Katdare, Yangge Li, Ted Liu, Hebron Taylor
