Learning A Steering BEHAVIOUR

Robotic Vision Summer School (RVSS) 2019 Workshop Guide

In this year's workshop you will deploy a deep neural network on a mobile robot. You will go through all the stages of this process: data collection and labelling, network architecture design and implementation, training and testing, deployment on the robot and task execution.

Given an RGB image from a camera onboard the robot, you will use a deep neural network to produce a steering command that drives a robot along the 'road'.

The workshop task can be broken down into a number of sub-tasks, as shown below.

  • Connecting to the robot with your laptop
  • Collecting data with the robot
  • Building a network
  • Training your network
  • Testing on the robot and refining your network
