Course Registration

Assignment to the lab is done via the matching system. In addition to applying to the matching system please remember to also send in your application documents latest by 20 July 2021.

The preliminary meeting took place on 13 July 2021. The preliminary meeting slides are available here.

Note that the course goes by the name Lernbasierte Ansätze für autonome Fahrzeuge und intelligente Systeme on the matching system

Course Content

Learning-based approaches have recently made tremendous progress in the computer vision and robotics research community. In this practical course, we will solve challenging real-world problems in the area of self-driving cars and intelligent systems. Topics will be in the direction of visual localization and mapping, control, and semantic understanding. We will also explore the synergy of learning-based methods with classical geometry-based approaches such as visual odometry and 3D reconstruction. Some applications may also involve working on massive datasets including unstructured or unordered data.

  • Good knowledge of the Python language and basic mathematics such as linear algebra, analysis, probability and numerics etc. is required.
  • Good knowledge of a deep learning framework such as PyTorch, TensorFlow, etc.
  • Participation in at least one of the offered deep learning lectures at TUM is required. For e.g. 1, 2, 3 etc.
  • OR participation in at least one of the lectures / labs covering the basics of Multi-View Geometry. Some example courses include: 1, 2, 3, etc.
  • Other courses with matching content may be considered. Please highlight this in your application.

Programming tasks will be given in the initial weeks to get the participants up to speed. Afterwards, students will work in groups of max. 2 persons on research oriented projects. To review progress and assist with resolving any issues, students are invited to meet the supervisors on a weekly basis.


Time: Tuesdays 3-5 pm
Room: 01.06.011, Seminarraum (5606.01.011)
Teaching will be conducted in-person. Please make yourself familiar with the Covid-19 regulations that are mandatory for compliance before and during the course attendance.
