IEEE Signal Processing Magazine Features CAVS Researchers' New Sensor Processing Course with State-of-the-Art Physics-based Autonomy Simulator

May 20, 2021

SPAV A new sensor processing course, Sensor Processing for Autonomous Vehicles (SPAV), designed by John Ball, Jean Mohammadi-Aragh and Christopher Goodin was recently featured in IEEE Signal Processing magazine.The researchers and professors created the course with two specific objectives: 1) to successfully engage students using active and collaborative learning and 2) integrate a state-of-the-art, physics-based autonomy simulator into the class.

The course was delivered to local and asynchronous distance students in spring 2020 at Mississippi State University (MSU). The MSU Autonomous Vehicle Simulator (MAVS) was used in the class. We also utilized three mini projects to bring together theory and practice. We evaluated the course through student feedback. Results indicated that students viewed active exercises and the simulator as beneficial and useful, with multiple students describing those aspects as their favorite part of the course. Nearly all students (39 of 40) report-ed that they were engaged in the course.
