Prepare Now for the Growing Demand for Autonomous Mobility Technology Talent

 

Boston Consulting Group Says: "Demand for Autonomous Mobility Engineers will Outstrip Supply by 4-6x by 2024." Will you be Ready?

Autonomous Revolution: The autonomous revolution is rapidly accelerating. OEM, Tier 1, and Tier 2 manufacturers are increasing their rate of production on autonomous fleets, while the largest constraint is the available talent to manage the complexity to integrate these technologies in a safe and trustworthy manner. 

The Need: The transportation industry is in desperate need of engineering teams with the knowledge to safely integrate autonomous subsystems into a vehicle, who have the practical hands on experience of overcoming these technological complexities. Today’s automotive engineers and teams are missing the hands-on experience that apply to the latest autonomous technologies of the evolving market. 

 

LHP’s Solution

With LHP’s immersive autonomous technologies training, engineers will learn the basics of Perception, Localization, Control, & Technology Integration and gain relevant hands-on skills that are lacking in today’s automotive landscape. LHP’s training helps build the skills and hands-on experience to develop a talent solution that addresses the autonomous revolution. 

Through technical and personal skills development, LHP  reduces the cost of acquisition and can upskill existing talent to address the increased skills needed for the advanced technology and the gap in capacity that will continue to grow through the changing automotive landscape.

Enabling a Scalable Workforce Through Autonomous Vehicle Skills Development

LHP has decades of experience understanding, implementing, and training on industry safety standards. Our extensive knowledge translates into the hands-on talent development participants receive with LHP’s Intro to Autonomous Technologies training modules. Through training development, we will help level-up your engineers in forefront, high demand technologies and or help you acquire already trained, ready to work, autonomous talent.

Reduce the Acquisition

Reduce Talent Acquisition Cost

Reduce the cost of acquisitions. Cost of acquisition $75-$100k to train an engineer + 1 year to ramp up (recruiter, train, implement, interview...etc.) LHP can vet the talent and you can trust us on the correct hire. 

Hands-On Experience

Hands-On Experience

Hands-on experience implementing and designing autonomous technology on a fully-electric vehicle, coupled with project management and workplace professional development.

Course Modules

This course is designed to train on the latest autonomous vehicle trends. Trainees can select to be trained on any or all of the six technical topics below. The course also provides a component of soft-skills training which aids in project management, leadership, and teamwork development. 

machine-learning-2

Machine Learning

Train your own machine learning model, integrate the machine learning model with ROS and the camera and use techniques learned from the previous modules and the results from the machine learning model to develop algorithms to control your autonomous vehicle.

Localization-2

Localization

Gain an understanding of coordinate systems, map making, and necessary formulas.  Take a deep dive in the GNSS system and why it is a key enabler of Autonomous Mobility.  In this module you will analyze accuracy performance between standard and RTK enhanced GPS data, understand how to connect to a live GPS receiver stream and how to analyze this data. Analyze accuracy performance between standard and RTK enhanced GPS data, and collect GPS data from a full size autonomous electric vehicle as it maneuvers a course, also recording data from the second receiver and determine how it calculates orientation.

LiDAR, Radar, Computer Vision

LiDAR, Radar, Computer Vision

Learn how LiDAR, Radar, and Computer Vision acts as an eyes of the self-driving vehicles providing them a 360-degree view, proximity localization, and detection of static and dynamic objects.  You will spend time processing signals from LiDAR, Radar, and Computer Vision hardware on workbenches, while receiving one-on-one instruction from our experienced trainers.

Real Time Operating System

Real Time Operating System

Learn about Robot Operating Systems (ROS) and how it provides a flexible and unified software environment.  Then get the basics on Python programming language, the most popular and fastest growing language used in programming autonomous vehicles.  Become proficient in CAN J1939 Standard, and develop an understanding of how it enables data sharing and transfer for autonomous vehicles.  You will then start your work with sensors learning about Sonar and how to program the device and manage signal processing.  Finally, you will learn about the industry leading simulation software CarSim, by Mechanical Simulation Corporation, which you will use throughout this course.

Path Planning

Path Planning

Creating models for Sensor Fusion, Path Planning, and Vehicle Control using MATLAB Simulink and CarSim.  We start with a dive into Kalman Filtering and then develop and demonstrate building of a IMU GPS filter structure and assess performance of the filter, using MATLAB control system and sensor fusion toolboxes.  You will learn discreet Path Planning and Prediction concepts, followed by Trajectory Generation, and finally you will generate you own path plan.  Then you will learn about closed-loop feedback controls, understanding the Model Predictive Control formulation, and finally gain the experience and knowledge of the integration and tuning of the advanced controls in the simulation environment, CarSim.

Drive By Wire

Drive By Wire

Learn about Drive by Wire (DBW) and how it enables autonomous vehicles.  We will discuss how modern cars have assisted driving features in cruise control, Anti-lock brakes, traction control, and stability control. You will be introduced to throttle, brake, and steering actuators which are essential to autonomous vehicle operation.  Then work with actual DBW components on benches, learning about how the steering and braking mechanisms and actuators work.  Implement a simple steering angle controller (PID) to position the wheels, gathering data to manage both the position and the velocity of the steering angle. Then you will install your steering controller algorithm into an autonomous electric vehicle allowing it to either directly control the steering or run in "safe parallel" where it computes steering actuator commands that we compare to the vehicle’s commands. 

 

Delivery Model 

This course is designed to fit the needs of both the individual learner and engineering team. The training is broken up by modules where trainees can select which module they wish to complete based upon topic. Module length varies and can be customized to fit the needs of the individual or group. 

 

TIGRESS - PerceptIn Pod

Meet Tigress.  Tigress is a fully Autonomous Electric Vehicle provided by our industry partner PerceptIn.  Tigress comes complete with a fully integrated sensor package that enables fully autonomous operation.  Tigress combines patented vision-based sensor fusion with a patented modular computing system to provide a safe and reliable method of transport in low-speed environments. It uses a visual intelligence technology including a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) module, sonar and radar. 

During the Intro to Autonomous Mobility Course, Students will implement sonar, radar, LiDAR, and sensor technologies directly on Tigress in order to demonstrate a fully-autonomous vehicle by the end of the 9-weeks.
