Short courses are designed such that TrustCAV trainees from different disciplines will be required to work together and share perspectives. For example, electrical engineering students may identify pattern recognition, computer science students may assess computer vision, systems students will examine sensors effectiveness, law students will examine regulations, and information technology students will integrate the CAV data into an information product.

Some examples of short courses TrustCAV will offer include:

  • Trustworthy and dependable CAV
  • CAV hardware
  • CAV software and programming
  • Blockchain
  • CAV legal, ethical, and regulatory challenges
  • Sensing and perception in CAV
  • Connectivity in CAV
  • Decision-making in CAV
  • Object detection in CAV
  • Data analytics in CAV
  • Intrusion detection in CAV


Workshops will provide short, intense discussions and hands-on experience on a variety of topics that will complement the students’ background, current curriculum and short courses. Some examples of workshops the TrustCAV program will offer that are focused towards professional skills required for the CAV practitioner include:

  • Cyber-security
  • Privacy
