The Rector's Order No. 18/2020 is designed in accordance with the methodology introduced by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, ie the measures are divided into four levels, corresponding to the currently valid epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic.
Please pay close attention to the current status information at the CTU or FTS web sites.
The approved form of communication is also an email, so it is necessary to monitor it regularly for a specific message about the current situation of teaching from your teachers or additional messages from the Department of External Relations.
Let us to be considerate so that together we can manage this difficult time in the lives of each of us as best we can.
The main contact for coronavirus related issues remains the secretariat of the faculty treasurer - phone: 224 359 518 or 733 696 308 or email: email@example.com
Recently, autonomous vehicles, which are at least partially, capable of driving without driver intervention, are beginning to emerge. The research of these systems is carried out mainly in the USA (Tesla, nVIDIA, Uber, etc.). Given that more than 95% of accidents are caused by human error, it can be assumed that research in the field of autonomous driving systems will become significant in Europe. The construction of a testing polygon in the Czech Republic is already being discussed.
In the project, we will continuously follow the trends in autonomous vehicles. The focus of the project will be the research, development and testing of components that are needed to construct a ''self-driving'' model vehicle. We will test the algorithms on a small nVIDIA JetBot - based robotic rover that we build. For example, we will gradually train the vehicle to drive through a specified track, avoid collisions, stop in front of an obstacle, or safely bypass it. Later we will extend the rover with a module that will enable communication with other carts around and transport infrastructure. We will work closely with the Modelling and Control in Traffic Networks project
The input for the used artificial intelligence algorithms will be especially the image data from the camera installed on the rover. Knowledge of image processing algorithms that students will acquire within this project will also find application outside of autonomous vehicles. We will use freely available AI framework systems such as Google - Tensorflow or nVIDIA - TensorRT. The advantage to work on the project is at least a basic knowledge of programming or willingness to learn how to program in a simple programming language such as Python.
