udacity/self-driving-car: The Udacity open source self-driving car project

Self-Driving Car

We’re Building an Open Source Self-Driving Car

And we want your help!

At Udacity, we believe in democratizing education. How can we provide opportunity to everyone on the planet? We also believe in teaching really amazing and useful subject matter. When we decided to build the Self-Driving Car Nanodegree program, to teach the world to build autonomous vehicles, we instantly knew we had to tackle our own self-driving car too.

Together with Google Self-Driving Car founder and Udacity President Sebastian Thrun, we formed our core Self-Driving Car Team. One of the first decisions we made? Open source code, written by hundreds of students from across the globe!

If you want to browse for a new bike or gab with the bike mechanic about your fixed-gear collection, wait till the shutdown is over. In the meantime, if you need parts or an urgent repair, the shops are ready to help. But no matter what shop you go to, call ahead. Things are changing quickly.

Cycleton in Stapleton, which plans to stay open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, has

N.J. counties shutting down parks to slow coronavirus spread, but state parks still open

In line with Gov. Phil Murphy’s order Monday to tighten a state lockdown on public gatherings, parks in at least two New Jersey counties will be closed indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak, officials said.

“We had started to close some parks to the public last week in an effort to curtail large gatherings and because of a lack of social distancing,” Ocean County Freeholder Virginia E. Haines said in a statement.

Ocean County as of Monday had 874 cases of coronavirus, according to New Jersey health officials.

“Because the power of social distancing cannot be stressed enough, we are taking this next step and shutting down all of our parks and natural land sites to the public.”

“Parks and natural lands will be closed to the public starting at 6 p.m. (Tuesday) until further notice,” Ocean County officials said in a statement. There are 27 parks across the county
