There is no predefined number of participants for freelancers. The project can be carried out parallel to the course. A CV and a short letter of motivation are required for the application.

Application information for other project participations

There are various other ways to participate in the AMZ Racing Team. Semester and master’s theses can be written as part of the project. The supervisors have to be organized by the students themselves, but the AMZ will help with finding a topic.

After the first contact, the details will be clarified individually.

 

Join our driverless team

Joining our team means implementing software/hardware and/or taking responsibility in the following modules:

Perception:

You build the senses of the car. Develop a camera system and be creative with the newest vision algorithms and machine learning. Or work with the newest LiDAR technology to detect as many cones as possible. Maybe even fuse them together, to build one powerful pipeline and push the limits of how fast we can drive.

Control:

Here, it’s all about pushing the car to its limits. Plan the optimal trajectory around the track and develop the algorithms that control the many powerful actuators, to finally be faster than a human driver.

Estimation:

Combine the inputs from multiple sensors to provide an accurate estimate of the car’s velocity, build a map of the track while driving using a complex SLAM algorithm, or plan the best way to navigate the track.

Software Infrastructure:

Build on the framework to integrate the software into the car, or improve and expand our Automated Testing System running on our in-house server to allow code improvements without hitting the test track. On the hardware side, design a computer fast enough to execute the driverless pipeline at high speed and tough enough to survive the harsh conditions on board a race car.

Simulation and Data Analysis

High fidelity simulation allows to design, test and tune the software before even going to the track. Accurate modelling of the physics behind an autonomous racecar as well as all its state-of-the-art sensors is a fascinating challenge. You’ll be able to conceive and build this simulator: the goal is to build a powerful and intuitive tool not only for testing the amz autonomous pipeline but also for decision making and scenario analysis
