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
We will propose 4 invited talks and organize an open session for selected paper coming from a Call for paper in relation with the topic of the workshop.
The workshop proceedings will be published electronically as a pdf file.
Selected papers will be considered for a special issue in an International Journal. We will issue an open call after the workshop, submissions will go through a separate peer review process.
