Call for Participation: ICRA 2011 Workshop on Micro-UAV Perception and Control

Date and Location: 

Monday, May 9, 2011
Shanghai International Convention Center, Room: 3B

Agenda:

This full-day workshop will address perception-feedback loops for three dimensional, navigation by micro unmanned vehicles in urban environments. Areas of emphasis include vision-based control and estimation, design of processors, sensors and algorithms for size, weight and payload constraints, motion planning and control, and modeling and benchmarking of performance for three-dimensional navigation.
