Autonomous Vehicle Vision (AVVision) Special Session (ICIP 2021) Call for Papers

Autonomous Vehicle Vision (AVVision) Special Session (ICIP 2021)

Call for Papers 

With a number of breakthroughs in autonomous system technology over
the past decade, the race to commercialize self-driving cars has
become fiercer than ever. The integration of advanced sensing,
computer vision, signal/image processing, and machine/deep learning
into autonomous vehicles enables them to perceive the environment
intelligently and navigate safely. Autonomous driving is required to
ensure safe, reliable, and efficient automated mobility in complex
uncontrolled real-world environments. Various applications range from
automated transportation and farming to public safety and
environmental exploration. Visual perception is a critical component
of autonomous driving. Enabling technologies include: a) affordable
sensors that can acquire useful data under varying environmental
conditions, b) reliable simultaneous localization and mapping, c)
machine learning that can effectively handle varying real-world
conditions and unforeseen events, as well as “machine-learning
friendly” signal processing to enable more effective classification
and decision making, d) hardware and software co-design for efficient
real-time performance, e) resilient and robust platforms that can
withstand adversarial attacks and failures, and f) end-to-end system
integration of sensing, computer vision, signal/image processing and
machine/deep learning. The special session will cover all these
topics. Research papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the
following topics:

* 3D road/environment reconstruction and understanding;
* Semantic/instance driving scene segmentation and semantic mapping;
* Self-supervised/unsupervised visual environment perception;
* Car/pedestrian/object/obstacle detection/tracking and 3D localization;
* Car/license plate/road sign detection and recognition;
* Driver status monitoring and human-car interfaces;
* Deep/machine learning and image analysis for car perception;
* Adversarial domain adaptation for autonomous driving.
