GANs haven’t really found their place in self-driving cars right now, especially with recent advances in simulation and the vast amounts of data that has been collected.

So far, more than $16 billion has been spent on self-driving research. What’s the problem? Self-driving is expensive? Why? Getting data and training…

You’ve probably seen me write quite a few articles on the components of the self-driving process (which were quite technical!). For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on building my own, real self-driving car that can drive real-time.

Demo!

Let’s break this stuff down, so simple that even you’ll be…

Humans are the most complex organism known to the whole history of the universe. Our ability to make rational decisions and process millions of possible outcomes within a matter of seconds has allowed us to dominate the world, procreate, and advance technological evolution.

Although often overlooked, driving is one of…

We, humans, tend to have quite the memory. Especially when driving. We know what a red traffic light is and realize that we need to deaccelerate our cars, remember road names and even perform path planning with Google Maps, to even understand how to drive a car!

Let’s say I…

I’ve been working on the Become a Self-Driving Engineer nanodegree for some time now. Recently, as part of the Sensor Fusion module, I was tasked with building an algorithm that can predict a moving car’s trajectory and location given the previous inputs and uncertainty.

What even is a Kalman filter?

Kalman filters are a special type…

As part of the Become a Self Driving Engineer nanodegree I’ve been doing for the past little bit, I was recently tasked with creating a Lane Detection Algorithm completely from scratch. It looks like this:

I wanted to take it up to a whole new level, so I slapped on…

It is expected in this article that you know the basics of how Convolutional Neural Networks work and a good understanding of Deep Learning. If you do not have a good understanding, bookmark this article, and read this article and this one.

Lane Detection is probably one of the most…

Remember those times when you were young and you accidentally asked your teacher how old she was? Yeah, I know, the ending didn’t go that well. Your parents got mad at you since they already told you the saying of “never ask a woman her age and a man his…

I thought everything was going well. I was happy with my life, happy with everything I do, and was always looking forward to tomorrow.

But out of nowhere, this shadow was pulling me back. Slowly and slowly I wasn’t able to walk the path of happiness anymore. …

You know, I’ve always hated cold showers. Even using water at room temperature, my skin would frost over and I would be out in seconds. I had always thought that cold showers meant a cold day. And being a cold, shivering mess does not exactly lend itself well to productivity.
