Unmanned Vehicles for infrastructural and environmental Monitoring Workshop

Unmanned Vehicles for infrastructural and environmental Monitoring

In many disciplines in the geomatics domain, unmanned vehicles are used in daily research, practice and applications. Those include aerial vehicles (UAV), but also ground based (UGV) and underwater devices (UUV). Though working in different media, for the operation of all types of vehicles some generic research questions can be raised. In this workshop we want to bring together experts from different domains, concerned with (image) data acquisition, processing and interpretation, but also sensor orientation, 3D geometry computation from one type of device, but also concerning fusion of data, eg. from UGV and UAV. Applications should be in the domain of monitoring infrastructural and environmental parameters and objects.
