About this Specialization

Autonomous vehicles have demonstrated unparalleled technological developments in recent years, and are the future of the automotive industry. By 2025, around 8 million autonomous vehicles are expected to be deployed on the roads. This marks a need for engineers well-versed in the development of autonomous vehicles at an industry level, from both a hardware and software standpoint.

By enrolling in this Specialization, you will get the industry-relevant skills needed to develop Autonomous Vehicle Systems. This specialization has 4 courses designed by instructors with extensive experience in the industry. From these courses, you will understand computer vision technology, and the role of video cameras, radar, LIDAR, processors, and other hardware. You will also learn how hardware is interfaced with software in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). This specialization will also take you through motion planning and trajectory optimization, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), as well as the implementation of control theory for autonomous vehicles.

Each of the courses in this specialization come with projects and challenges that require exhaustive use of the software tools and concepts learned to develop industry level ADAS models. Apart from these projects, you will collaborate with an instructor to complete guided projects. This will ensure you develop the right skills needed to apply for core jobs in the autonomous vehicle job market.
