Title : Perception for Cooperative Automated Driving – Analysis of Practical Issues

Presenter : Miguel Angel SOTELO – Université d’Alcala, Espagne


Self-driving cars have experienced a booming development in the latest years, having achieved a certain degree of maturity. It is well known in the scientific community that the reliability and perception horizon of self-driving cars will be further enhanced by means of cooperation with other vehicles. Thus, Cooperative Automated Driving is expected to become the future of vehicle autonomy. The benefits of Cooperative Perception will be immense in mixed traffic environments, even for non-automated V2V-equipped and manually driven vehicles. This talk will analyze some of the practical issues affecting cooperative perception for collaborative automated driving. For such purpose, a bird-eye view of cooperative driving scenarios and technological constraints will be presented, followed by the discussion of experimental findings obtained in a series of real tests carried out with several V2V-equipped vehicles.

Title: UAV Design and Testing – the Sky’s the Limit…!
Presenter: Dr KC Wong, School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering, The University of Sydney, Australia

Brief Abstract:

This will present a brief introduction to the UAV Design and Testing activities at The University of Sydney over the last 3 decades. These range from UAV systems being used for education, research, and applications. Recent focus has been on developing innovative flight capabilities.

Title: Underwater 3D Mapping and Intervention
Presenter: Pere Ridao, Université de Gérone, Espagne

Although commercial Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are currently used routinely for opto / acoustic seafloor mapping in predominantly flat terrains, they can not operate in areas with significant 3D relief. Currently, only Remotely Operated Vehicles can be used for high resolution optical mapping of steep terrains, as well as for Inspection, Maintenance and Repair applications where manipulation is required. As research advances, some of these tasks solved nowadays with teleoperated vehicles, will be gradually achieved with autonomous robots. The future AUVs have to be able to build high resolution maps of arbitrary underwater 3D structures. From one side, this means that mapping algorithms to build 3D models from the opto / acoustic imagery are required, but also that is required to guide the robot close to the structure to make it visible by the cameras. Even more, future AUVs have to be able to safely move around submerged infrastructures, to inspect them as well a! s to perform manipulation tasks like grasping objects, turning valves and plugging connectors, paving the way to a new breed of vehicles, the so called Intervention Autonomous Underwater Vehicle.

Titre : Navigation autonome en environnement rural et non balisé pour la robotique militaire terrestre
Orateur : Cécile Jourdas, Architecte système IA à Nexter Robotics

Résumé : A l’échelle d’une dizaine d’année, l’armée de Terre espère intégrer dans ses troupes des robots terrestres capables de « démultiplier les effets du combattant sans le ralentir dans sa mission et lui permettre de se concentrer sur des taches à haute valeur ajoutée » ( https://antispam.utc.fr/proxy/2/Y2FzdGlsbG9AaGRzLnV0Yy5mcg%3D%3D/www.defense.gouv.fr/web-documentaire/2019-les-systemes-automatises/index.html ). Il est donc indispensable que ces véhicules bénéficient de la plus grande autonomie possible dans leurs déplacements. On ne compte plus les avancées portant sur les véhicules autonomes en milieu urbain balisé. Néanmoins, les théâtres d’opérations militaires répondent rarement à ces critères et des travaux ont été engagés à Nexter Robotics pour exploiter au mieux l’état de l’art de la détection de route tout en l’adaptant aux problématiques que! sont le manque de données terrain et la criticité de cette fonction. Cette présentation évoquera ces contraintes et les solutions envisagées.
Titre : Visual tracking of a ground vehicle using an aerial vehicle
Presenter : J. C. Betancourt, PhD Student, Heudiasyc Laboratory UMR 7253 France

Abstract :

Surveillance is a major concern nowadays for the development of autonomous vehicles (AVs) technology, in particular during prototyping stage. However, it is unclear what an effective strategy is for aerial imagery with drones. In this presentation, a scheme for aerial visual servoing of a mobile ground robot tracking a smooth vector field is proposed. The scheme is based on structural properties and constraints of both systems, such as a non-holonomy, nonlinear dynamics and underactuation. The result is aerial surveillance of an autonomous vehicle mimicking how we drive a real vehicle by redefining locally smooth velocity field toward the next target through admissible paths.
