Abstract

Navigation in dynamic environments is an increasingly important topic today, as future robots have clearly to be able to move safely in an open and unpredictable world. Whereas path planning and SLAM are already well established for static environments it is not clear today how these techniques can cope with dynamic environments including people, other robots, and changing landmarks and environment features. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers working in this field, - to present the current status in research, exchange ideas and to identify the most promising approaches

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss topics related to the challenging problems of autonomous navigation and of driving assistance in open and dynamic environments. Technologies related to application fields such as unmanned outdoor vehicles or intelligent road vehicles will be considered from both the theoretical and technological point of views. Several research questions located on the cutting edge of the state of the art will be addressed, including the following topics: Robust obstacle detection and characterization in dynamic environments; Real-time perception and sensor fusion; SLAM in dynamic environments (including 3D); Behaviour modelling and learning; World state estimation and prediction; Real-time motion planning in dynamic environments.
