Project Description:
We all know about the dawn of the self-driving car, but we also know about the problems and dangers
in early versions. This project will plan, design, and create a working testbed that will simulate various
urban environments and traffic scenarios, and will employ various simulations, with the goal of
developing improved operating software for self-driving cars in complex urban landscapes.
