You are correct as far as deep learning, but there is more to self-driving cars than deep learning. A lot of algorithms, like Kalman filters, particle filters, motion planners, and controllers, will be implemented in C++, or at least use frameworks with C++ bindings, in order to squeeze as much performance as possible out of a limited onboard computer.

I love self-driving cars and I work on them at Voyage! https://voyage.auto
