Seminar: Computer Vision and Deep Learning for Autonomous Driving

PD Dr. Federico Tombari, Nikolas Brasch, Shun-Cheng Wu, Mahdi Saleh
Type: Seminar Module IN0014
SWS: 2+0
ECTS: 5 Credits
Location: Zoom meeting
Time: tba
Course Language: English


  • You can submit your motivation letter via email.
  • Preliminary Meeting: *February 1st, 10:00-10:30am, slides
  • All sessions will be held over Zoom


  • The seminar includes a selection of the most recent and relevant papers in the field of computer vision and deep learning aimed at autonomous driving.
  • Papers are selected to cover different aspects of the topic:
    • Semantic Segmentation
    • 3D Scene Understanding
    • Multi-modal sensor fusion
    • SLAM and 3D reconstruction
    • 6D object pose estimation / 3D object recognition
    • Joint depth and visual odometry prediction
    • Synthetic dataset creation
    • Generative models for sym-to-real
    • Semi-supervised large-scale dataset annotations
    • Trajectory planning and lane change prediction
  • The full list of papers will be available a few weeks before the beginning of the semester.



In this Master Seminar (formerly Hauptseminar), each student is asked to select one paper from a list. In order to successfully complete the seminar, participants have to fulfill these requirements:

  • Presentation: The selected paper is presented to the other participants (20 minutes presentation 10 minutes questions). Use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint camp-tum-jhu-slides.zip, or Latex: CAMP-latex-template.
  • Blog Post: Will be clarified in the first session.
  • Attendance: Participants have to participate actively in all seminar sessions.

The students are required to attend each seminar presentation which will be held during this course. Each presentation is followed by a discussion and everyone is encouraged to actively participate. The blog post must include all references used and must be written completely in your own words. Copy and paste will not be tolerated. Both blog post and presentation have to be done in English.
