Artificial Neural Network for Autonomous Driving
Sir Frederick Banting S.S.
Autonomous driving is the future of transportation as its safer and more reliable than human drivers. I set out to see if an artificial neural network can be used to drive a car. This is a novel approach compared to the traditional software solution, as it’s very flexible and adaptive. The ANN would be trained to work with any available sensors, controls, and driving conditions.
I live in London, Ontario. Since I was a young child I have loved science, math, and especially computers. I speak English, French, and Russian fluently, and I plan to pursue a career in engineering. I have recently learned computer programming, and I got very interested in autonomous driving. Many leading technology companies are currently researching autonomous vehicles and I was intrigued. This is now my second year doing science fairs, and now I have decided to apply concepts of machine learning to solve the problem of autonomous driving. While making this project I have learned a lot about artificial intelligence, physics, and computer algorithms.
