_General Scope _
In robotics research, autonomy has presented a long standing challenge 
on many fronts, particularly for motion control. Mobile robot autonomy 
is dependent on a variety of technological solutions and their 
integration. Some key areas include enhanced traction methods, outdoor 
perception, localization, map building, obstacle avoidance, safety, 
maintenance etc. Great effort and resources have already been invested 
worldwide to develop such technologies to enable the autonomy of mobile 
robots. This workshop will focus on state-of-the-art developments in 
modeling, perception, estimation and control of all-terrain mobile 
robots. Mobility in outdoor unstructured environments remains a critical 
technology where many interesting research topics must be addressed. 
Precise modeling and estimation of the contact between tire and ground, 
localization and mapping in unstructured environment, robustness to the 
uncertainties of parameters and precise trajectory tracking in dynamic 
environment represent challenging issues for our scientific community. 
The proposed workshop will summarize existing results, exchange ongoing 
research and address future directions in these diverse areas:

· Detection, tracking and classification
. Feature extraction and feature selection
. Cooperative techniques
. Collision prediction and avoidance
. Environment perception
. Robot localization Autonomous navigation
. Real-time perception and sensor fusion SLAM in dynamic environments
. Mapping and maps for navigation
. Real-time motion planning in dynamic Environments
. 3D Mapping, traversability
. Robust sensor-based 3D reconstruction
. Modeling and Control of mobile robot
. Trajectory/object tracking in hard conditions
. Machine Vision for Outdoor Environment
. 3D Sensing and Reconstruction of Outdoor Environment
. Robotics for Fruit/Vegetable production
. Guidance in Orchard Environment
. Sensing in partially cluttered partially structured environments
. Kinematic slip modeling and slip estimation
. Path tracking and control methods
. Off-road mobile robot control Mobile robot safety (integrity, 
traversability, stability)
. Low cost localization system
. Multi autonomous vehicles studies, models, techniques and simulations

_Final program _
We will propose 5 invited talks and 12 selected papers coming from a 
Call for paper in relation with the topic of the workshop.
We will have 4 sessions dealing with:

·Session I: Enhanced mobility & Modeling

·Session II: Perception in outdoor environment

·Session III: Navigation, Control, Planning

·Session IV: Cooperative Robots, Software architecture

_Keynotes _

The workshop proceedings will be published electronically as a pdf file, 
and available on the ICRA14 DVD Workshop.
This workshop is made in relation with IEEE RAS: RAS Technical 
Committees on :

  * Autonomous Ground Vehicles and Intelligent Transportation Systems
  * Space robotic <http://ewh.ieee.org/cmte/ras/tc/spacerobotics/>
  * Agricultural Robotics and Automation
