Sri Anumakonda walked through the Capstone Project for the Udacity Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program, and it is such a nice write-up!
Sri is a teenage phenom who combines an engaging social media profile with impressive projects on a wide variety of software engineering projects.
I particularly appreciate Sri’s summary of the neural networks in his perception stack. Not only did Sri train a network to detect and classify traffic lights, which is a component of the Capstone, but he also trained MobileNet-SSD to detect cars and pedestrians, which goes above and beyond the requirements.
Several years have now passed since I was part of the team that built this project for Udacity. We had so much fun, and I’m delighted to see that students like Sri are still enjoying it!
