[ITSC2018] Special Session: Beyond Traditional Sensing for Intelligent Transportation

5 Mars 2018


Catégorie : Conférence internationale


IEEE ITSC 2018 (November 4-7 in Maui, Hawaii) special session with the title “Beyond Traditional Sensing for Intelligent Transportation”

We kindly invite you to submit a paper to our session. The special session aims to investigate unconventional sensing for intelligent transportation in three main areas: (1) the unorthodox application of sensors to transportation tasks, (2) innovative sensor configurations/placements, and (3) the use of novel sensing modalities.

The paper submission deadline is April 15. Contributions to special session will be handled like regular papers (with the special session code SS_BEYO), and the normal rules for registration, format, quality, expectations, etc. apply.

 

Dear Colleagues,

My colleagues and I are organising a special session at IEEE ITSC 2018 (November 4-7 in Maui, Hawaii) with the title “Beyond Traditional Sensing for Intelligent Transportation”, and we kindly invite you to submit a paper to our session.

The special session aims to investigate unconventional sensing for intelligent transportation in three main areas: (1) the unorthodox application of sensors to transportation tasks, (2) innovative sensor configurations/placements, and (3) the use of novel sensing modalities.

The paper submission deadline is April 15. Contributions to special session will be handled like regular papers (with the special session code SS_BEYO), and the normal rules for registration, format, quality, expectations, etc. apply. The complete call for papers is attached.

We would greatly appreciate if you could please forward this email to any of your students or postdocs who are performing research in this area. We have also included more information below.

Best wishes,

Damien Vivet


Special session on "Beyond Traditional Sensing for Intelligent Transportation"

Submission code: SS_BEYO

Over the past few decades, sensors have not only become more advanced but also made impressive strides across an increasing number of sensing modalities. Despite the improved capabilities and breadth of available sensor systems, those used for intelligent transportation have remained relatively uniform across platforms. As a result, the algorithms and techniques being designed do not take full advantage of the rich information modern sensors can provide. Since all tasks—including perception, localisation, decision-making, and learning—are built on top of sensing, exploring alternative approaches to sensing is a compelling research area that can render all subsequent tasks more robust and accurate.

The objective of this session is to explore unconventional sensing for intelligent transportation in three ways. Firstly, it will investigate sensor systems that are not typically applied to certain transportation tasks, such as radar for precise localisation and audio for failure detection. Secondly, it will explore untraditional sensor configurations and placements, such as ground-facing cameras using shadows to detect occluded moving objects. Lastly, it will look into the sensing of commonly overlooked information, such as the use of atmospheric sensors for gauging road surface traction or in-vehicle sensors for driving analysis. Via these three themes, this session aims to stimulate discussion and research into untraditional sensing in order to improve the reliability and accuracy of transportation systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Localisation and navigation using radars (e.g., scanning, Doppler, and ground-penetrating)
  • Ego-noise modelling (e.g. sound-based failure detection, and terrain/road surface status classification)
  • Soundscape perception and interpretation
  • Event-based (neuromorphic) vision for localisation and perception in challenging scenarios
  • Multi-spectral imaging (e.g. IR or polarimetric cameras for localisation and perception under difficult visibility)
  • In-vehicle sensing for failure detection, driver behaviour, etc.
  • Far infrared sensing
  • Texture odometry
  • Novel sensor hardware and designs
  • Unconventional sensor placements or multi-sensor systems
  • Optimal sensor scheduling and control in complex multi-agent environments
  • Astronomical (skyward-facing) sensing for localisation
  • Atmospheric or odor-based sensing

Important Dates:

  • Paper Submission Deadline: April 15, 2018
  • Notification of Acceptance: July 2, 2018
  • Final Paper Submission Deadline: September 09, 2018
  • Conference Dates: November 4-7, 2018
