The Sensor Fusion Engineer Nanodegree program will teach you the skills that most engineers learn on-the-job or in a graduate program - how to fuse data from multiple sensors to track non-linear motion and objects in the environment. Apply the skills you learn in this program to a career in robotics, self-driving cars, and much more.
You should have intermediate C++ knowledge, and be familiar with calculus, probability, and linear algebra.
Process raw lidar data with filtering, segmentation, and clustering to detect other vehicles on the road.
Analyze radar signatures to detect and track objects. Calculate velocity and orientation by correcting for radial velocity distortions, noise, and occlusions.
Fuse camera images together with lidar point cloud data. You'll extract object features, classify objects, and project the camera image into three dimensions to fuse with lidar data.
Fuse data from multiple sources using Kalman filters, and build extended and unscented Kalman filters for tracking nonlinear movement.
