Autonomous Vehicles Business (Stanford Course Free Archive)

Enjoy lectures & videos from Sudha Jamthe's Stanford AV courses for free

This page combines two Stanford Continuing Studies courses that I have been teaching since 2017.

a) BUS174 - Business of Self-Driving Cars (semester long course)

b) Autonomous Vehicle Business: An Intense Bootcamp (weekend workshop) (New session is open for registration now for Spring 2019 on May 18/19)

Is this Course for me: The course teaches professional adults interested in pivoting their careers to the Autonomous Vehicles space.

Part 1 (for beginners): AV landscape, technology, and how-to look at AV space as a business space covering Smart Mobility.

Part 2 (Students experience in Automotive or Transportation space): covers how to create business value from Car Data and AI.

Part 3 (for everyone): covers Regulation, Futuristic design, b-models and AV investment landscape.

Several guest speakers augment my lectures and I will be sharing the videos of those who gave us permission to record their sessions.

Lookout for new content as I add more class lecture slides, guest speaker videos, and some student business plans.
