  • First Asia-Europe Symposium on Intelligent Vehicles   Event - Symposium May 22, 2007 - Shanghai
    Contact Information: Ming Yang (mingyang at sjtu dot edu dot cn)

    The First Asia-Europe International Symposium on Intelligent Vehicle will be held on May 22-24, 2007 at Shanghai Oriental Land, Shanghai. This symposium is organized by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and supported by EU Asia-IT&C Programme CyberC3 Project, French-Asia ICT Programme FACT Project and Shanghai Oriental Land. More than 100 participants from China, France, Portugal, Holland, Belgium, Singapore, Korea, Japan, etc., are expected to attend the symposium.

    The main aims of this symposium are to exchange new idea and the latest research results in the field of intelligent vehicles, to explore development and application perspective of Cybernetic Transport System in Asia and Europe, and to promote further technology exchange and friendly cooperation among Asia-Europe collaborators.

    During the three-day symposium, the CyberC3 Driverless System, which is developed under close cooperation among Asian and European researchers will be demonstrated with some other demonstration by partners from the CyberC3 Project and the FACT project. We are glad to invite you to attend this symposium and relevant demonstration activities. With your participation and support, we believe this symposium can be a big success. Looking forwards to see you in the Shanghai Oriental Land.

  • The VisLab research group (Univ of Parma, Italy) participated with a great success to the Grand Challenge. They were part of the TerraMax team, the only team which fielded a truck and was able to have it reach the finish line! VisLab designed the vision system for this truck, based on a trinocular system. The TerraMax vehicle was the only vehicle which reached the finish line using vision as its primary sensor.

Intelligent Transportation Systems

Scope:

The goal of the TC on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is to promote ITS applications within the Robotics and Automation Society and catalize the interaction between RAS and the Intelligent Transportation Systems Council. This is meaningful due to the variety of Robotics Technologies which are currently used in ITS. The committee will try to achieve these goals by organizing cross RAS-ITS events like special sessions, workshops, special issues etc. The TC will also try to promote international collaborations on this topic.

Examples of typical robotic technologies applied to the field of transportation are:

  • Traffic supervision.
  • Path planning.
  • Collision prediction.
  • Obstacle avoidance.
  • Behavior understanding.
  • Environment perception.
  • Autonomous navigation.
  • Measurement systems
