Coursera Launches Self-Driving Cars Specialization from University of Toronto

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 febbraio 2019

Coursera, the world’s leading online learning platform, today launched a Self-Driving Cars Specialization created by the University of Toronto, a leading institution in robotics research and autonomous driving. The four-part online Specialization is the first-of-its-kind to provide learners with state-of-the-art knowledge and engineering to make safe autonomous vehicles a reality. The Specialization is designed for learners who already have some engineering experience, but little to no formal training in self-driving technologies.
Experts predict that the market for self-driving cars will reach $42 billion by 2025 and that the demand for skilled workers within the autonomous vehicle industry will continue to climb, creating more than 100,000 U.S. mobility industry jobs in the next decade.The major players in today’s self-driving car market guard their technology and advancements closely, making it difficult to gain access to the crucial knowledge needed to enter the field. To democratize access to top quality self-driving car development knowledge, Coursera and the University of Toronto will offer a series of advanced, hands-on simulation and programming assignments at an industry-leading price of $79 per month.“Self-driving cars will reshape our cities and our lives, in the process creating tens of thousands of new jobs for those who have the right skills,” said Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera. “We’re excited to partner with the University of Toronto, a top-ranked leader in autonomous vehicle research, to train the next generation of engineers who will bring safe, autonomous vehicles to public roads.”World-renowned experts, Professor Steven Waslander and Professor Jonathan Kelly from the University of Toronto, teach the Specialization based on 30 years of experience and pioneering techniques in autonomous robotics research. Learners enrolled in the Specialization will also learn directly from industry experts from leading companies like Oxbotica and Zoox.The Specialization provides a detailed understanding of the architecture and components of a self-driving car software stack, methods for static and dynamic object detection including processing real-time data from sensors, estimating a car’s location, and issuing commands for vehicle control. By the end of the four-course Specialization, students will be able to drive a virtual car around a simulated racetrack.The first course of the new Specialization launches on January 30th, with subsequent courses rolling out during 2019.
