Thinking of enrolling in self driving car engineering nano degree from udacity and make efforts to pursue a career in self driving car engineering. Have genuine interest in computer vision. Is it worth it ?

    I also have genuine interest in rocket science. Maybe I should also do those $500 course, get certified and start building rocket.

    There are also very few roles in vision/perception, but tons for simulation and mapping, other systems and eng. So why not try those? Vision is hardly the most impactful part, and you’re going to be either cleaning data or tuning parameters based on work done somewhere else.

    Currently doing this nanodegree. The material is easy and the quizzes are maybe too easy. You can get equivalent knowledge from 2-3 books/MOOCs on robotics and computer vision instead, but this course keeps you on schedule and I’ve enrolled for this discipline/motivation. Best if you can reimburse the cost by your company.
    It’s probably not going to make all self-driving startups swoon over you, but I think it’ll be a bonus point.

    Study RL Bro. CV is so old school . With the accuracy already at 95% - what new will you bring to table ?

    Nope. The credential is too common, and the course is easy. The few (out of thousands) who’ve been hired into the industry are MechE or embedded.
