Engineering Autonomous Vehicles - Rising 10th-12th

The development of autonomous vehicles seeks to infuse our daily commutes with artificial intelligence, promising to provide better and safer transportation than human drivers are capable of. But that promise comes with much potential peril. In this course, we will look at the engineering that enables autonomous transportation, and take a critical look at how previous breakthrough technologies have both benefited and harmed society. Each student will develop their own predictions for both the promise, and peril, of autonomous vehicles, and have the opportunity to get hands-on with programmable mobile robots.

This course is offered in session seven (July 19-25).

Course Leader: Jonathan Maier, Ph.D.
