--------------------------------------------------------------------------


InerVis2008 will be on the 28th of June 2008, associated with RSS 2008,
Robotics Science and Systems Conference, taking place in Zurich, Switzerland

The tutorial will address the integration of vision and inertial sensors.
Starting from a biological perspective, some fundamental approaches for
fusing this sensing data in robotic systems will be presented, together with
a survey of the recent work in the field.

- PRELIMINARY PROGRAMME --------------------------------------------------

Planned lectures for half-day tutorial :

 -"Biological visuo -vestibular interactions"
 -"Fundamental approaches for fusing this sensing data in robotic systems
   and survey of the recent work in the field. Sensor models, camera and
   inertial data relationship" 
 -"Integration of Vision and Inertial Sensing: camera and inertial data
   registration, setup calibration, the registration of a vertical
   reference" 
 -"Robotic Applications of Inertial and Visual Sensor Fusion"
 -"Ego-motion from Multi-rate Fusion of Inertial and Visual Data, and
   Simultaneous Structure and Motion"
 - Discussion panel on the benefits and practicalities of having
   visuo-inertial fusion in robotic systems
 
For the closing discussion, contributions will be accepted prior to the
tutorial, with specific problems or target applications that already rely or
could benefit from visuo-inertial sensing.
