Abstract: In recent decades, the academia and industry have paid more and more attention to and investment in the research and development of autonomous unmanned systems. Autonomous unmanned vehicle is a machine equipped with necessary data processing units, sophisticated sensors, environment perception, automatic control, motion planning, task planning and mission management, as well as communication systems. It can perform and complete certain specific tasks autonomously without a human operator. It is an integration of advanced technologies in many fields including deep learning for perception, learning based control and navigation, and multi-agent system technology. Autonomous systems, such as unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), unmanned aerial systems (UAS), unmanned surface vehicles (USV) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV), are projected to play significant roles in industrial applications, such as reconnaissance for search and rescue, security surveillance, environmental and traffic monitoring, powerline and pipeline inspection, building inspection, geographic mapping, tunnel inspection, film production, logistic delivery, and warehouse management.

The proposed workshop on autonomous unmanned systems technologies and applications aims to provide audience with up-to-date information and latest technologies involved in developing autonomous unmanned aerial systems and in tackling some real industrial problems, such as infrastructure inspection and information management. The workshop will also contain presentations given by teams participating in Cooperative Aerial Robots Inspection Challenge on their solution and results.
