Recap: MultiDrone @ICCV 2017

Drone Vision for Cinematography

The project consortium, under the lead of project Coordinator Prof. Ioannis Pitas (AUTH) successfully organised  a half-day tutorial on “Drone Vision for Cinematography” in the prestigious International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) 2017, held in Venice, Italy, October 22-29.

The tutorial took place on October 22nd 2017 from 8:30AM to 12:45PM and provided an in-depth overview on the use of computer vision and related technologies in single and multi-drone cinematography.  It consisted of 7 presentations, 6 of them delivered by MultiDrone members:
Drone Vision and Cinematography: An Overview (Prof. I. Pitas, AUTH)
Real-time Visual SLAM (Prof. Jose M. M. Montiel, Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain)
Multisensor Fusion for Target Tracking (Prof. J. R. Martínez-de Dios, USE)
Drone Formation and Flight Control (Prof. Rita Cunha, IST)
Deep Learning for Drone Vision in Cinematography (Prof. A. Tefas, AUTH)
Drone Cinematography (Prof. N. Nikolaidis, AUTH)
Privacy Protection Technologies in Drones (Prof. I. Pitas, AUTH)

The tutorial was a first-class opportunity to attract the interest of the computer vision research community to the project and showcase its results and goals.

The event was attended by approximately 70 people who actively participated through numerous questions after the end of each presentation. Subsequent discussions between the participants and the presenters showed great interest to the project and Drone Cinematography in general and a number of collaboration and other opportunities were raised. All participants were handed a project flyer with basic information and contact details.
