Many real world problems quirea degree of flexibility that is to achieve using hand algorithms. One such domain is vision-based autonomous driving. In this task, the dual challenges of a constantly changing environment coupled with a real processing constrain the flexibility and of a machine learning system essential. This describes just such a learning system, called (Autonomous Land Vehicle In a Neural Network). It presents the neural network architecture and training techniques that allow to drive in a variety of including singlelane paved and unpaved roads, multilane lined and unlined roads, and obstacle-ridden on- and road environments, at speeds of up to 55 miles hour.
