Scope

Autonomous driving and navigation is a major research issue which would 
affect our lives in near future. The purpose of this workshop is to 
discuss 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. 
Technologies related to this area, such as autonomous outdoor vehicles, 
achievements, challenges and open questions would be presented, 
including the following 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, Modeling and Control of mobile 
robot, Cooperation and communications, Multi-agent based architectures, 
Cooperative unmanned vehicles.

Previous Workshop

Previously, four workshops were organized in the same field. The 1st 
edition PPNIV'07 of this workshop was held in Roma during ICRA'07 
(around 60 attendees), and the second PPNIV'08 in Nice during IROS'08 
(more than 90 registered people), the third edition SNODE'09 in Kobe 
during ICRA'09 (around 70 attendees), and the last one PPNIV'09 was 
organized in the next IROS'09 in Saint-Louis. A special issue in IEEE 
Transaction on ITS, mainly focused on Car and ITS applications, has been 
published last September 2009. Previous editions were focused mainly on 
the use of one vehicle; the 5th edition will extend the topics to 
control, traffic and multi-vehicle.

Keynotes

Proceedings: The workshop proceedings will be published within the ICRA 
Workshop/Tutorial CDROM and electronically as a pdf file.

Special issue: Selected papers will be considered for a special issue in 
an International Journal in connection with this workshop. We will issue 
an open call after the workshop, submissions will go through a separate 
peer review process.

IEEE-RAS TC on ITS: This workshop is organized in the framework of the 
IEEE Robotics and Automation's Technical Committee on: Autonomous Ground 
Vehicles and Intelligent Transportation Systems
