Conference Overview

Advancements in sensing, computing, imaging processing, and computer vision technologies are enabling unprecedented growth and interest in autonomous vehicles and intelligent machines, from self-driving cars to unmanned drones to personal service robots. These new capabilities have the potential to fundamentally change the way people live, work, commute, and connect with each other and will undoubtedly provoke entirely new applications and commercial opportunities for generations to come.

The inaugural conference on Autonomous Vehicles and Machines (AVM) was successfully launched in 2017 at EI. In 2018, we will consider a broad range of topics as it relates to equipping vehicles and machines with the capacity to perceive dynamic environments, inform human participants, demonstrate situational awareness, and make unsupervised decisions on self-navigating. The conference seeks high-quality papers featuring novel research in areas intersecting sensing, imaging, vision and perception with applications including, but not limited to, autonomous cars, ADAS (advanced driver assistance system), drones, robots, and industrial automation. AVM welcomes both academic researchers and industrial experts to join the discussion. In addition to the main technical program, AVM will include demonstrations and exhibits.
