Join us at the ARCTIC summer camp to build a self-driving car. In this workshop, we will provide a bird's eye view of the technology landscape needed to start a project like a self-driving car. We welcome absolute beginners and will demonstrate the skillset needed to build and program something like this on your own. You may not be able to build a self-driving car yourself at the end of the workshop, but you will know the building blocks needed to successfully embark on such a journey. We will show you how to utilize open-source projects and libraries to shorten build time and will provide you with already working examples so that you will be able to complete a project and build a basic self-driving car. We will show you where to look to get the knowledge and help you if you run into issues during your journey. It can take at least 3+ years of learning before you master all the concepts that will be introduced at the camp, but attending will provide you with a strong foundation. At the end of the week, you will have a chance to race your car along an obstacle course, and winners will be selected. Come and join us and get a good start learning these useful computing concepts.
