Dear Colleagues,
we are happy to announce the final program of the workshop "Challenges in
Vision-based Drones Navigation" at IROS 2019 in Macau on November 8.
We have a great line of speakers, from both industry and academia, and live
flight demonstrations! We have a $500 USD best paper award prize sponsored
by Krypto Labs in Abu Dhabi and a $1000 USD best VIO competition award
sponsored by DJI and Huawei!
We thank our sponsors Krypto Labs, DJI, and Huawei for the support.
The finalists of the 4th IROS Autonomous Drone Race will also be presenting!
A JFR Special Issue will also be organized after the workshop (submissions
open to everyone).
WHEN: Friday, November 8th, 2018, from 9 am to 6 pm
WHERE: The Venetian, Macau, China - Room L1-R2
