EUSIPCO 2019 Satellite Workshop

European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO) is the most important conference on Signal Processing and related topics in Europe. Its 27th edition was held in A Coruna, Spain from September 2-6, 2019

MULTIDRONE organized in EUSIPCO 2019 a Satellite Workshop on  the hot topic of “Signal Processing Computer Vision and Deep Learning for Autonomous Systems”. The half day workshop, that took place on September 6th, 2019 was also technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society and endorsed by the IEEE SPS Autonomous Systems Initiative (ASI).  The workshop was organized by MULTIDRONE team members Nikos Nikolaidis and Anastasios Tefas, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Greece and was attended by more than 30 persons.

Attendees of the Workshop

The workshop consisted of an invited speech on “Robot 6 Degrees of Freedom localization and mapping” that was delivered by MULTIDRONE team member Prof. José Ramiro Martínez-de Dios,  Dept. of Automation and Systems Engineering, University of Seville (USE), Spain, as well as 15 oral presentations of research papers, in two sessions.

These papers were selected after peer review from those submitted after an open call. The papers covered a broad spectrum of topics, ranging from self-driving cars and GNSS-based localization for autonomous vehicles to drone infrared video coding and detection of whales from autonomous surface vehicles. MULTIDRONE members authored and presented 6 of these papers (4 of them were joint works between two or more project partners) on topics like the drone platform architecture, distributed mission execution for multiple drone aerial cinematography and potential UAV landing site detection. The full text of all papers is freely available on the workshop page.

The workshop was a first class opportunity for the project to showcase its scientific and technological achievements in a targeted audience. It also fulfilled its aim of bringing together researchers, engineers and computer scientists working in the areas of signal/image/video processing and analysis, computer vision, and machine learning for autonomous systems to present and discuss recent developments and trends in this exciting area.
