The newest version of the Udacity Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program has launched!
This version has brand new courses and projects on deep learning, sensor fusion, localization, and planning, with brand new instructors. It’s a fantastic 2021 update to the original program, which dated to 2016.
I helped build the first half of this new version back when I was still at Udacity last year, and then my long-time Udacity colleague, Michael Virgo, led the effort to completion.
A particularly awesome aspect of this new version of the Nanodegree program is that we created in conjunction with Udacity’s long-time partner, Mercedes-Benz, and with a new partner, Waymo. Several projects in the program teach students how to work with the Waymo Open Dataset, which is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain hands-on skills.
The program also features a long-form video interview I conducted with Waymo Head of Research Dragomir Anguelov.
I’m so excited for students to keep learning about self-driving cars with Udacity!
