General Scope

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss topics related to the challenging
problems of autonomous navigation in open and dynamic environments.
Technologies related to application fields such as unmanned outdoor vehicles or
intelligent road vehicles will be considered from both the theoretical and
technological point of views. Several research questions located on the cutting
edge of the state of the art will be addressed. Among the many application areas
that robotics is addressing, transportation of people and goods seem to be a
domain that will dramatically benefit from intelligent automation. Such new
technologies can also be efficiently applied to other application field such as
unmanned vehicles, intelligent wheelchair, service robots, or more generally to
human assistance. Technical contributions related to this area, such as
autonomous outdoor vehicles, achievements, challenges and open questions will
be presented and discussed. Five technical areas, with a focus to their
instantiation to dynamic environments, will particularly be addressed:
Vision-Based Perception, Multi-sensors Perception & Localisation, SLAM & 3D
Reconstruction, Path Planning & Navigation Systems, Human-Robot Interaction.

Main Topics

# Object detection, tracking and classification
# Collision prediction and avoidance
# Environment perception, vehicle localization and autonomous navigation
# Real-time perception and sensor fusion
# SLAM in dynamic environments
# Real-time motion planning in dynamic environments
# 3D Modelling and reconstruction
# Human-Robot Interaction
# Behavior modeling and learning
# Robust sensor-based 3D reconstruction
