General 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 
such as unmanned vehicles, mobile service robots, or mobile devices for 
motion assistance to elderly or disable peoples. Technologies related to 
this area, such as autonomous outdoor vehicles, achievements, challenges 
and open questions would be presented.

Main Topics :
* Road scene understanding
* Lane detection and lane keeping
* Pedestrian and vehicle detection
* Detection, tracking and classification
* Feature extraction and feature selection
* Cooperative techniques
* Collision prediction and avoidance
* Driver assistance systems
* 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
* Multi-agent based architectures
* Cooperative unmanned vehicles (not restricted to ground transportation)
* Multi autonomous vehicles studies, models,techniques and simulations

Preliminary program
We will propose 4 invited talks, organize an open session for selected 
paper coming from a Call for paper in relation with the topic of the 
workshop, and an interactive poster/Demo session.


The workshop proceedings will be published electronically as a pdf file.

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