*ICRA 2015 Workshop on Scaling Up Active Perception*

Active perception involves controlling sensor parameters to achieve a
sensing task. Traditionally, active perception has been focused on tasks
(such as object inspection with a manipulator) which take place in a
confined space. Existing sensor planning approaches are typically reactive
and are not informed by past experience. Recently there has been
significant interest in extending the scope of active perception to (1)
more sophisticated sensing tasks (e.g. object recognition and detection),
(2) expansive environments such as large water bodies and farms, (3)
planning approaches which use prior knowledge, seek information and are

The workshop aims to bring together researchers who work on a wide range of
active perception problems in order to identify common research challenges,
solution techniques and novel approaches.

Researchers interested in participating in the workshop should send a
2-page abstract to Volkan Isler by April 10.
