Call For Papers

We are proud to present the 3rd International Workshop on Computer Vision for UAVs (UAVision 2019). This workshop is in conjunction with CVPR2019, Long Beach, California and is scheduled on either June 16th or 17th (TBD). Previous editions were held at ICCV2017 and ECCV2018.

This workshop focuses on state-of-the-art real-time image processing on-board of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Indeed, cameras make ideal sensors for drones as they are lightweight, power-efficient and an enormously rich source of information about the environment in numerous applications. Although lots of information can be derived from camera images using the newest computer vision algorithms, the use of them on-board of UAVs poses unique challenges. Their computational complexity often conflicts with the need for real-time operation and the extreme resource limitations of the platform. Of course, developers have the choice to run their image processing on-board or on a remote processing device, although the latter requires a wireless link with high bandwidth, minimal latency and ultra-reliable connection. Indeed, truly autonomous drones should not have to rely on a wireless datalink, thus on-board real-time processing is a necessity. However, because of the limitations of UAVs (lightweight processing devices, limited on-board computational power, limited electrical power on-board), extreme algorithmic optimization and deployment on state-of-the-art embedded hardware (such as embedded GPUs) is the only solution. In this workshop we focus on enabling embedded processing in drones, making efficient use of specific embedded hardware and highly optimizing computer vision algorithms towards real-time applications.

Apart from the regular paper submissions track we also organize an ERTI (Embedded Real-Time Inference) challenge. In this challenge competitors need to develop a pedestrian detection framework which runs on an NVIDIA Jetson TX2 with a minimum processing speed of 5 FPS.

This half-day UAVision2019 workshop aims to bring together the HW and SW community towards enabling embedded processing in drones, working on specific embedded hardware, highly optimized algorithms and a smart mix of on-board and remote processing. Original high-quality contributions are solicited on the following topics:

Applications of computer vision on UAVs
On-board embedded vision
Embedded vision processors
Embedded GPUs
Algorithmic optimizations
Low-latency vision
Hard real-time vision
Deep learning for drone applications
Real-time deep learning inference
Visual autonomous navigation and SLAM
Visual collision avoidance
People and object tracking
Human-drone interfacing
Cinematographic multimedia content creation by UAVs
Scene understanding for drones
Non-classical vision sensors (IR, depth,...) on UAVs
