International VDI Workshop - Imaging and Optical Sensing Technologies Applications for Autonomous Driving

with a certificate of attandance

Optical Sensors for Autonomous Driving | International VDI Workshop

The international VDI Imaging and Optical Sensing Technologies – Applications for Autonomous Driving workshop will give you the essentials for using optical sensors and ‘sensor analytics’ for driver assistance systems and autonomous driving. You will learn about the setup and function of various sensors as well as different camera types. Practical exercises and live demonstrations will help you to apply your newly acquired knowledge.

Optical sensors and ‘sensor analytics’ are the basis for autonomous driving

Optical sensors and image processing systems are indispensable for modern driver assistance systems as well as for autonomous driving. These provide the necessary information about the environment around the vehicle in real time. The international VDI Imaging and Optical Sensing Technologies – Applications for Autonomous Driving workshop will give beginners with a basic understand as well as those with more advanced knowledge a current overview of the field. Amongst others, camera calibration, testing and validation, image processing technology as well as current thinking about the integration of machine learning in object recognition will be addressed.

During the 2-day workshop, you will learn about the components that make up cameras for automotive uses. You’ll also find out about how data is transmitted from the sensor to the control unit and which requirements must be fulfilled in order to use optical sensors. Discussion rounds with presenters and participants where you will be bale to ask questions and talk about concrete problems also play a major part.

The main themes of the workshop include:

  • The essentials of optical sensors for autonomous driving
  • Norms, laws and standards
  • The essentials of setting up sensors, camera types and calibration
  • Testing and validation, image analysis and ‘computer vision’
  • Machine learning for autonomous driving
  • Hands on session about object recognition and classification
