Webinar Details

Autonomous Unmanned Systems (AUS) are systems capable of maneuvering in the air, on the ground, above or under the water. There are a number of applications for AUVs in civilian, military, and security areas, such as defence patrol duties, agricultural activities, forest fire monitoring and control, grid monitoring, border control, search, surveillance, and rescue.

In recent decades, academia and industry have paid more attention to, and invested in, the research and development of intelligent autonomous unmanned systems. While the field of autonomous unmanned systems has made tremendous progress, many questions still need to be answered. The increased popularity of data-driven algorithms in both perception systems and planning systems requires a second wave of innovation. In order to transition from systems suitable for demonstration, toward production-ready intelligent autonomous systems in our everyday lives, verifiability, safety, and explainability are key requirements that need to mature. Additionally, autonomous systems that operate in complex, dynamic, and interactive environments require artificial intelligence that can be generalized for unpredictable situations in a timely manner, and can interact with many other agents.

York University and Quanser are jointly organizing this workshop. It aims to provide participants with up-to-date information and the latest technologies involved in developing intelligent autonomous unmanned systems and tackling real industrial problems.
