2012 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium

E-mail Print PDF

THE INTELLIGENT VEHICLES SYMPOSIUM (IV'12) is the premier annual forum sponsored by the IEEE INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS SOCIETY (ITSS). Researchers, academicians, practitioners, and students from universities, industry, and government agencies are invited to discuss research and applications for Intelligent Vehicles and Vehicle-Infrastructure Cooperation. The technical presentations are characterized by a single session format, so that all attendees remain in a single room for multilateral communications in an informal atmosphere. Tutorials will be offered on the first day followed by three days of presentations and a vehicle demonstration day. An exhibition area will be available for the presentation of products and projects, as well as for small demonstrations.

Program topics include but are not limited to:

    * Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
    * Automated Vehicles
    * Vehicular Safety, Active and Passive
    * Vehicle Environment Perception
    * Driver State and Intent Recognition
    * Eco-driving and Energy-Efficient Vehicles
    * Impact on Traffic Flows
    * Cooperative Vehicle-Highway Systems
    * Collision Avoidance
    * Pedestrian Protection
    * V2I / V2V Communication
    * Assistive Mobility Systems
    * Intelligent Ground, Air and Space Vehicles
    * Autonomous / Intelligent Robotic Vehicles
    * Image, Radar, Lidar Signal Processing
    * Information Fusion
    * Vehicle Control
    * Telematics
    * Human Factors and HMI
    * Electric and Hybrid Technologies
    * Novel Interfaces and Displays
    * Intelligent Vehicle Software Infrastructure

Manuscripts of 6 pages in PDF format must be electronically submitted for peer-review in IEEE standard-format. For detailed submission instructions visit the conference website

A GPS with artificial vision for blind wins 3M Award for Innovation in Safety

E-mail Print PDF

The proposal of Pablo Fernández Alcantarilla and Luis Miguel Bergasa is the development of a system of location and navigation assistance to enable the guiding of a blind person in structured indoor environments and in outdoor environments using a GPS and machine vision sensor fusion.

The goal is to provide the user with greater autonomy and security while browsing, as well as localization errors. The system indicates the path you must follow to reach a destination using acoustic information obtained through a voice synthesizer.

3M Awards for Innovation Foundation celebrated its thirteenth edition. It has four categories: Health, Safety, Industry and Environment.

The award for the category of Health has been awarded to a team of researchers from the Autonomous University of Madrid, while the Security and Industry have gone to researchers at the universities of Alcalá and Oviedo, respectively. The category of the Environment has been unsuccessful.

In the area of Health, the winner has been called "innovative therapies for the sequelae of hemorrhagic stroke: prospects for cell therapy with allogeneic stromal cells". The authors are J. Vaquero, L. Otero and M. Zurita, Department of Surgery, Autonomous University of Madrid.

In the area of Industry, the winner was "Design and fabrication of a robotic platform for promotion to posts and data acquisition with wireless remote control." Its author is F. J. Álvarez González, under the coordination of tutors J.M. Sierra Velasco and J. Diaz Gonzalez, all of the Polytechnic School of Engineering of Gijón (University of Oviedo).
