Self-driving cars, meet rubber duckies

MIT has offered courses on everything from pirate training to “street-fighting math,” but a new robotics class is truly one for the birds. This spring, a hands-on course housed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) took students on a trip to “Duckietown.” The class’ goal was to create a fleet of 50 duckie-adorned self-driving taxis that can navigate the roads of a model city with just a single on-board camera and no pre-programmed maps. Beyond the class, Duckietown’s leaders have larger ambitions: to work with roboticists around the world to incorporate their open-source teaching materials and $100 “Duckiebot” design into other schools’ programs. This spring, a hands-on course housed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) took students on a trip to “Duckietown.”…
