The Limitations Of Our Deep Learning Powered Self-Driving Golf Cart

Introduction After our somewhat unsuccessful demo last Wednesday, my partner Michael Meng exclaimed, “there is no hope for deep learning”. The future is not that grim, but Michael is right to a certain degree. Deep learning has flaws and our deep learning powered self-driving golf cart certainly has lots of flaws. Today, I would like to […]

The Robustness of the Semantic Segmentation Network

Introduction On Feb 21st, Michael and I tested the autonomous steering and cruise control system. Unfortunately, the testing was largely unsuccessful. We encounter many issues with the system and testing conditions. This prompted me to think about the robustness of our systems, specifically the semantic segmentation system. Shadows Convolutional neural networks are notoriously bad at handling shadows. […]

Successfully Tested the Autonomous Steering System for the Self Driving Golf Cart

Today is a very special day for us. We have successfully tested the autonomous steering system for the self-driving cart. Here is a video.   For the past 27 days (not counting weekend only 19 days), Michael and I have been working on the autonomous steering system for the self-driving golf cart. Frankly, I have never been […]
