Special Sessions

Robot Vision

Recent advances in embedded systems and computer vision hardware and software are increasingly being applied to augment, and even to replace other robot sensors such as GPS, odometry or laser rangefinders. Computer vision has very low-cost, small size and may operate in most types of environments. Thus, computer vision applications to embedded systems and robotics are steadily growing in the last few years.

The aim of this special session is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in the area of computer vision for robotics and other mobile devices with emphasis on embedded image processing and analysis. We are soliciting original contributions, which address a wide range of theoretical and practical topics related to computer vision for robotics, including, but not limited to:

  • Embedded Computer Vision for Robotics
  • Gestures, Movement and Activity Recognition for Robotics Applications
  • Humanoid Robot Vision
  • Human-Robot Interaction
  • Sensor Fusing (Vision with Other Sensing Devices)
  • Multi-Robot Distributed Vision
  • Novel Visual Sensors for Robotics (such as RGB-D and HDR)
  • Object Recognition and Pose Estimation for Robotics Applications
  • Performance and Robustness Evaluation of Robot Vision Approaches
  • Robot Vision and Embedded Computer Vision Applications
  • Vision-Based Control and Manipulation in Robotics
  • Vision-Based Environmental Modeling and Visual Place Recognition
  • Visual Odometry and Visual Navigation
  • Visual Tracking, Visual-Based SLAM and Semantic SLAM

Submission procedure

Authors are invited to submit full papers showing original research contributions. The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (Springer LNCS). Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the ICIAR 2014 submission system by May 5, 2014 May 19, 2014, selecting the special session topic in their submission. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.
