Autonomous Robots
Special Issue on Active Perception

Submissions now due 15 Feb 2016.


Autonomous Robots invites papers for a special issue on 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 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 farms; and (3) planning approaches which use prior
knowledge, seek information and are non-myopic.

This special issue follows a workshop at the IEEE International
Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2015) with a similar theme.

Papers addressing one or more of the topics below are of particular

 * Sensor planning for exploration and model building
 * Active perception in outdoor environments
 * Next-Best View planning
 * Active object detection and recognition
 * Sensor placement
 * Active perception in multi-robot systems
 * Visual servoing
 * Novel problem formulations in active perception

Papers must contain high-quality original contributions and be prepared
in accordance with the journal guidelines. All papers will be reviewed
following standard reviewing procedures for the journal. For more
information, please contact the guest editors.
