Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the Workshop "Vision-based 
High Speed Autonomous Navigation of UAVs" to be held at IROS'2016 in 
Daejeon, South Korea on Friday, October 14, 2016, 08:30-18:30, Room 111.

The tentative program is now available

The workshop will feature invited and contributed talks by top 
researchers in the field and live demo! Additionally, it will feature 
the participation of 5 companies, such as Qualcomm, DJI, Microsoft, 
Terabee and SSCI.
A special issue of Journal of Field Robotics has been organized.

IROS 2016 Workshop: October 14, 2016 in Daejeon (South Korea), during 
the IROS 2016 conference

Motivation & Goal
Our goal is to bring together researchers from academia and industry in 
the area of closed-loop control and navigation of Unmanned Aerial 
Vehicles working in indoor and outdoor GPS denied environments, using 
passive vision sensors as the main sensory modality. While most previous 
workshops have attempted to address the fundamental problems of 
perception, control and communication for aerial vehicles this workshop 
will focus on the systems' challenges for small-scale and high speed 
navigation of aerial vehicles, where the size, weight and payload  
constraints only allow light-weight sensors like cameras, and the 
operating conditions of high speeds (20 m/s) require perception, state  
estimation, environment reconstruction, obstacle avoidance and planning  
algorithms over longer ranges and shorter time scales.
The workshop will feature, in addition to contributed and invited talks, 
both from academia and industry actively working in this field.

Topics covered will be:
-High-speed visual control and state estimation of aerial vehicles
-Long term and range perception for UAVs without GPS
-Sensor fusion for autonomous navigation in unstructured environment
-System software and hardware architectures
-Mapping and Obstacle avoidance
-Perception in challenging and dynamic environments
-Modeling and benchmarking of performances for three-dimensional 
-Dynamic visual servo control of aerial vehicles
-Cooperative estimation and control with multiple aerial vehicles
-Resource constrained navigation
-Field robotics
-Search and rescue robotics
