Lesson Structrue

Through this course, you will be able to identify key parts of self-driving cars and get to know Apollo architecture.
You will be able to utilize Apollo HD Map, localization, perception, prediction, planning and control, and start the learning path of building a self-driving car.

  • 01

    Lesson 1 Self-driving Overview

    Identify key parts of self-driving cars, and get to know Apollo team and architecture.

  • 02

    Lesson 2 HD Map

    Get to know how high-definition maps work, which underpin almost every other part of the software stack.

  • 03

    Lesson 3 Localization

    Learn how the vehicle localizes itself with single-digit-centimeter-level accuracy.

  • 04

    Lesson 4 Perception

    Identify different perception tasks such as classification, detection, and segmentation and learning convolutional neural networks which are critical to perception.

  • 05

    Lesson 5 Prediction

    Study different ways to predict how other vehicles or pedestrians might move in Apollo self-driving cars.

  • 06

    Lesson 6 Planning

    Identify several different approaches Apollo uses to develop trajectories for autonomous vehicles.

  • 07

    Lesson 7 Control

    Understand how to use steering, throttle, and brake to execute our planned trajectory and master different types of controllers in Apollo.

  • 08

    Lesson 8 Congratulations

    Once completed, you’ll be provided with suggestions for future learning to pursue a self-driving car engineering career.
