Abstract

Students develop autonomous driving systems for small-size EVs (electric vehicles). They also develop control systems for mini-EVs and conduct control simulations using a vehicle simulator. Students use real EVs in the practicum for autonomous driving control, and students take their share of the responsibility for developing techniques including the implementation of sensing devices such as stereo-cameras and laser-range  sensors, and techniques for self-localization, route search, and driving control. On the final day, a competition evaluating their achievements is held in which the developed EVs perform autonomous driving.
