The meeting brings together the world experts, from both public and private sectors, to present and discuss the recent findings on Sensor Calibration and Orientation as well as Multisensory systems for Navigation and Mapping. With the rapid development of autonomous platforms, this traditional field of photogrammetry and geodesy integrates with robotics, computer vision and system control. Indeed, tighter integration between sensors and platforms remains an open challenge both algorithmically and practically for a number of applications that requires higher measures for reliability, integrity as well as accuracy both in navigation and mapping. Also, calibration procedures need to be revamped for new (and often small) optical sensors as well as their integration with navigation devices.
This one and half-day ‘single-track’ meeting strives to be practical, informative and informal where the experts with theoretical and hands-on experience discuss in a relaxed atmosphere.
