Course overview

This Connected Autonomous Vehicle Systems (CAVS) MSc course is designed to provide students from a software engineering, computer science and other similar backgrounds with the required critical skills to produce robust and safe Automated Driving Systems (ADS) for use in CAV applications. The course will cover topics such as sensor fusion, localisation, planning, communications, and human interaction. A special focus will be paid to safety, cybersecurity, testing, and validation of CAVS. These modules will also be delivered by industrial partner HORIBA MIRA, in order to ensure a real-world experience.
