[robotics-worldwide] [News] Invitation to join the IEEE SPS Autonomous Systems Initiative (ASI)

Ioannis Pitas
Dear  Colleague,

 

very recently, the IEEE Signal Processing Society has created the  IEEE SPS Autonomous Systems Initiative

(ASI). More information on its goals and policies can be found in  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__asi.politecnica.unige.it_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=91cpqhUP6ojv-kaFZfZe-qSCtzAxbD-GwAVyDNfWr78&s=MUumUyP9fSo3td6tCk0tjbSTbyvy1ykmZnKIITQ7_eQ&e=.

 

You are welcomed to  register as ASI volunteer, by filling your entry in

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__docs.google.com_spreadsheets_d_184vhefeqnuwMJTft7Mvkwku1-2D1NOJ3Ui6NttPfw3OJ4_edit-3Fpli-3D1-23gid-3D2072326988&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=91cpqhUP6ojv-kaFZfZe-qSCtzAxbD-GwAVyDNfWr78&s=Pyn0f7jezp0ZDuC7MChbO-6iFstywxAKBl8gXsf5LDU&e=

From a  scientific point of view, ASI can cover the following areas (non exhaustive list):

* Perception
* Sensor information processing
* Mission planning and control
* Machine learning for perception and control
* Robust/secure mobile communications
* Embedded systems
* Security
* Societal issues, e.g., data protection, privacy.

From an industrial/sectorial point of view, it can cover autonomous systems operating in any environment, whether this is on land, underwater, in the air, underground, or in space. More specifically:

* Autonomous cars
* Autonomous robotic systems
* Marine, underwater vessels
* Drones and unmanned aircraft.

Proposals on ASI related activities  (e.g., courses, special sessions/issues, workshops, competitions) are welcomed from any interested person/institution/company, by

sending an email to Prof. I. Pitas [hidden email] <mailto:[hidden email]> .

 

 

ASI will be inaugurated during ICIP2018 with a series of events on 7-8th October 2018, collectively called ASI@ICIP2018. You are invited to attend.
