13. Prerequisites  
14. Description of lectures
The course aims the studying of the technologies developed for the tasks of environment sensing of an automated vehicle, the currently available technologies and the corresponding signal processing techniques.
First, the course introduces the inner sensors of the vehicles, such as position, velocity, translation or rotation, basics of their physical operation and their limitations. After this, the main principles of environment sensing, such as ultrasonic, radar, lidar and machine vision systems are introduced through application examples. To strengthen the robustness of the collected data, several typical sensor fusion techniques are also studied.
15. Description of practices
16. Description of labortory practices
During the laboratory courses of the subject, The main goal is the software implementation of the knowledge and methods learned during the lecture and the examination of the known algorithms .
