Autonomously driving cars are becoming reality on the roads in the not-so-distant future. An even greater challenge lies in controlling autonomous race cars, where the emphasis lies not only on safety but on speed as well. An experimental setup on scale 1:43 is to be made available for conducting real-life tests. Employing advanced control/estimation methods for such an application in the millisecond range thus provides a fun an challenging task. A master thesis position which consists of the tasks described above is available with Professor Diehl.
