Course Modules

Robotics for Autonomous Vehicle Systems Bootcamp

Train smarter with our 12-week program.
Developed with Clemson University and Argo AI.

Convenient Skill-Building Digital Learning
Hands-On Work Each Week
1:1 Connections to Industry AV Engineers 

SLAM

Simultaneous Localization and Mapping

  • Define SLAM & Differentiate several SLAM approaches
  • Explore different localization algorithms
  • Implement SLAM for mapping and use the Navigation Stack in ROS to localize and plan the robot motion

Mechatronics

  • Describe the Sense-Think-Act framework and its relevance in an autonomous system
  • Outline basic topology & commands of the Robot Operating System

Navigation/Path Planning

  • Discuss the relative uses and merits of greedy and non-greedy path-planning approaches
  • Use the Navigation Stack in ROS to extract waypoints for robot motion and implement a pure pursuit controller to navigate through them

Perception: LiDAR, Cameras & Vision and Visual Intelligence

  • Describe the role of sensing systems in autonomous navigation
  • Implement lateral control for wall following
  • Use OpenCV to implement a line follower

Machine Learning

  • Explain basic machine learning concepts
  • Understand the difference between traditional perception and ML
  • Implement a ROS wrapper around trained models to detect and classify objects using Keras

Capstone Project

Implement Turtlebot Burger exercises that test skills in:
  • Working with Lidar and camera data
  • Object detection using pre-trained neural networks
  • Generating maps and localizing within that environment
  • Planning and control
