The use of unmanned vehicles has been investigated mostly as single autonomous and/or remotely piloted system. New developments are shifting the line of research towards the cooperation of multiple heterogeneous vehicles. The capabilities of heterogeneous robotic agents performing collaborative tasks, by means of physical interaction, information sharing and/or dynamic action planning, drastically increase the application spectrum that these robotic vehicles can be considered for. As a consequent advantage of their increasing autonomy, the human becomes capable to manage and direct a larger number of robots. Nevertheless, to effectively utilize their real potentials in realistic scenarios, deep understanding of the dynamic behaviors, technological and morphological limitations, but also of the capabilities and skills of both the individual agents and the collaborative group, is fundamental.

This workshop aims at unifying and advancing the current research on agile and dexterous unmanned vehicles, for their future development and effective use as teams of collaborative robots in real applications. The workshop wants to draw new research lines leading to the exploitation of teams of intelligent swarms of heterogeneous robots capable of achieving collaborative tasks. The role of the human as a remote supervisor or active player in the scene will also be extensively discussed.

List of Topics
- Collaborative human robot scenarios
- Heterogeneity as a key feature for collaboration
- Dynamic planning of multi-agent cooperation
- From data sharing to physical interaction
- Human in the loop, Teleoperation and Autonomous Control

Intended audience
The workshop aims at accommodating researchers in control of unmanned vehicles, multi-agent systems, machine learning, teleoperation, robot-robot, robot-environment and human-robot interaction.
