In 2020, autonomous racing was introduced at TU Wien by Prof. Radu Grosu (Head of Research Division Cyber-Physical System) with the new lecture 191.119 Autonomous Racing Cars.
The goal of this course is to give students an up-to-date foundation in the technologies being deployed and tested on self-driving cars, and more general mobile autonomous systems. This hands-on, lab-centered course is for master students interested in the fields of artificial perception, motion planning, control theory, and applied machine learning. It is also for students interested in the burgeoning field of autonomous driving. This course introduces the students to the hardware, software and algorithms involved in building and racing an autonomous race car. It concludes with a final race at the end of the semester.
