Navigation technologies for autonomous systems
Max amount of FITech students: 50 adult learners
The course starts with going through the various applications where navigation technologies are utilised in autonomous systems followed by going through the different navigation technologies and their pros and cons in details.
Autonomous systems need to have means to typically answer the questions:
- Where am I?
- What is around me?
- Where is my destination?
- What is the best way to reach my destination while avoiding local obstacles?
And the technologies that can answer these will be introduced. In addition to details of the technologies, also their security and privacy are discussed about.
After introducing the technologies, mathematical models, sensor fusion approaches and related simulation techniques are included. Students will also learn about open source software packages relevant for navigation technologies in autonomous systems. Finally, everything introduced will be brought to practical applications with case studies where students get to experiment with relevant data.
After having passed the course you
- have learned about all the various navigation technologies applicable for autonomous systems
- can apply information about the technologies to assess their safety as well as ethics.
