Dominik Nuss at Mercedes-Benz

One of the world-class experts in our Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree program!

Me and Andrei Vatavu and Dominik Nuss

One of the delights of teaching at Udacity is the opportunity to work with world-class experts who are excited about sharing their knowledge with our students.

We have the great fortune of working with Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America (MBRDNA) to build the Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program. In particular, we get to work with Dominik Nuss, principal engineer on their sensor fusion team.

In these two videos, Dominik explains how unscented Kalman filters fuse together data from multiple sensors across time:

These are just a small part of a much larger unscented Kalman filter lesson that Dominik teaches. This is an advanced, complex topic I haven’t seen covered nearly as well anywhere else.

MBRDNA has just published a terrific profile of Dominik, along with a nifty video of him operating one of the Mercedes-Benz autonomous vehicles.

Read the whole thing and learn what it’s like to work on one of the top teams in the industry. Then, enroll in our program (if you haven’t already!), and start building your OWN future in this amazing field!
