Sobre o curso

Welcome to Introduction to Self-Driving Cars, the first course in University of Toronto’s Self-Driving Cars Specialization. This course will introduce you to the terminology, design considerations and safety assessment of self-driving cars. By the end of this course, you will be able to: - Understand commonly used hardware used for self-driving cars - Identify the main components of the self-driving software stack - Program vehicle modelling and control - Analyze the safety frameworks and current industry practices for vehicle development For the final project in this course, you will develop control code to navigate a self-driving car around a racetrack in the CARLA simulation environment. You will construct longitudinal and lateral dynamic models for a vehicle and create controllers that regulate speed and path tracking performance using Python. You’ll test the limits of your control design and learn the challenges inherent in driving at the limit of vehicle performance. This is an advanced course, intended for learners with a background in mechanical engineering, computer and electrical engineering, or robotics. To succeed in this course, you should have programming experience in Python 3.0, familiarity with Linear Algebra (matrices, vectors, matrix multiplication, rank, Eigenvalues and vectors and inverses), Statistics (Gaussian probability distributions), Calculus and Physics (forces, moments, inertia, Newton's Laws). You will also need certain hardware and software specifications in order to effectively run the CARLA simulator: Windows 7 64-bit (or later) or Ubuntu 16.04 (or later), Quad-core Intel or AMD processor (2.5 GHz or faster), NVIDIA GeForce 470 GTX or AMD Radeon 6870 HD series card or higher, 8 GB RAM, and OpenGL 3 or greater (for Linux computers)....

This is a great course and also a demanding course for future of automobile industry. This course teachs me a lot about the control system of the car which is used in the autonomous control unit.

This introduction course really helped me recalling all my basic learning. Really appreciate the Professor. It will definitely help me for enhancing my skills in the field of autonomous driving.

The knowledge about how to implement a PID controller with the high level and low-level controller could not be mentioned enough because there was no exact knowledge about implementing an engine and throttle graph in real applications.

The instructors seemed to want nonlinear MPC controller for the lateral control so that I really hardly worked on to analyze and implement the nonlinear MPC controller but in fact, there is no requirement to implement nonlinear MPC.

Otherwise, the course is really awesome to understand the motion dynamics of a car with an internal combustion engine. Now, I am able to implement both the longitudinal and lateral controller for the car.

While the course content is good, it is skinny and it leaves a lot to be expected from the learner. That is ok if one is on the campus and there are people you can talk to and ask questions from the teaching assistant staff. Support for this course on the forums is non existent and expecting students to jump into CARLA and write a simulation loop is quite a leap. Especially when debugging CARLA is next to impossible since putting a breakpoint inturn breaks the connection to the server. The course requires way more smaller steps before throwing the student in the deep end.

Overall a great introduction course. For those entering the field, it gives a nice high-level view of what particular aspect of the self-driving world you might want to focus on or specialize in. It also gives you a modest intro to the Carla simulator. I took 2 stars off as the challenges in the course were less to do with innovation and more to do with navigating a world of notation inconsistencies, python modules being outdated/not supported as well as mismatch between the theory in lecture notes vs assignment expectations.

Most of the course was easy to follow and easy to understand. But it requires sometimes additional knowledge of control systems, functional safety and python programmign skills.

The programming assignments are quite tricky and the explanations are not really godd enough to understand the framework (e.g. unprecise definition of the waypoints array, the coordinate system, etc.) without spending extra effort on this. Especially to complete the final exam, a lot of effort has to be spend to get to know environment.

Worse than expected. I learn something, of course, but I was expecting to really learn many things. The assignments are not teachable and I learnt very little with them, but I spent lot of time.

Not much help is provided in the forums by the instructors for passing the tedious assignments.

Lots of useful information to learn in this course. However, the educational approach used isn't very efficient and you encounter a good number of mistakes or misorganisation, even after years of students signaling them.

Programming assignments were not structured well. Also lectures only cover a few amounts of details. Overall, the course is good to get an approach to self-driving cars. Thank you.

Informative but not much value addition in the post-covid era, in a somewhat hyped industry such as autonomous vehicles

should provide detail about how to implement programming in this course assignments

The overall quality is bad, lacks explanation, repeated useless intro music and introduction and summary takes quite time, which makes the already short video even less informative, the final assignment is already outdated and cannot run with the latest carla simulator, apparently no one is taking care of it.
