NVIDIA, Udacity Can Help You Build a Career Creating Robot Software

NVIDIA’s Deep Learning Institute is now working with the online learning provider to deliver a four-month program that will immerse students in the field of robotics, giving them career-ready skills.

Building robots isn't just a hobby anymore. Now you can build a career creating the software that will make bots better.


Step one: enroll in Udacity's Robotics Software Engineer Nanodegree program.

NVIDIA's Deep Learning Institute is now working with the online learning provider to deliver a four-month program that will immerse students in the field of robotics, giving them career-ready skills.

Throughout the term, students will learn how to get their autonomous machines to understand the world around them, make decisions and plan next steps.

Focus areas include robotic systems deployment, localization, SLAM, reinforcement learning for robotics, and path planning and navigation.

You'll learn about hardware used in robotics, including the NVIDIA Jetson TX2. As a bonus, all eligible students enrolled in this program get an education discount that can be applied to the purchase of a Jetson TX2.

To successfully apply to Udacity's Robotics Software Engineer Nanodegree program, you'll need a knowledge of foundational calculus, linear algebra, probability, statistics, basic physics and intermediate Python experience with intermediate C++, and knowledge of machine learning techniques (recommended not required).

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
