Obstacle Detection using Neural Networks

Obstacle Detection using Neural Networks

Advisor: Prof. Kornhauser.
The project hopes to look at how neural networks can be used to recognize and detect
whether a moving car will collide with an upcoming object, using neural networks. The
network could hypothetically be given the video feed of the path ahead from a car and be
used to tell what the probability of an object ahead colliding with the car is. This project
would have some stumbling blocks, such as how to train the network and how much of it
is actually feasible given time constraints, but they will hopefully be ironed out within the
next couple of weeks.
