ABSTRACT: The goal of this special session is to provide a forum for 
focused discussions on topics related to the challenging problems of 
autonomous navigation and of driving assistance 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. Fully 
automatic driving is emerging as the approach to dramatically improve 
efficiency while at the same time leading to the goal of zero 
fatalities. Theses new technologies can be applied efficiently for other 
application field like unmanned vehicles, wheelchair or assistance 
mobile robot.

Papers presenting new approaches and ideas related to intelligent 
autonomous road vehicles are solicited, and papers with the following 
emphases are particularly welcome:

(1) Context-based road object classification;
(2) Environment perception, vehicle localization and autonomous navigation;
(3) Pedestrian detection and vehicle detection;
(4) Real-time perception, smart sensors and sensor fusion;
(5) Road scene understanding;
(6) Cooperative unmanned vehicles;
(7) SLAM in dynamic environments;
(8) Real-time motion planning in dynamic environments;
(9) Multi-agent based architectures.
