The purpose of this workshop is to discuss topics related to the challenging problems of autonomous navigation and of driving assistance in open and dynamic environments possibly populated by human beings. Technologies related to application fields such as unmanned outdoor vehicles or intelligent road vehicles will be considered from both the theoretical and technological point of views. Several research questions located on the cutting edge of the state of the art will be addressed. Among the many application areas that robotics is addressing, transportation of people and goods seem to be a domain that will dramatically benefit from intelligent automation. Fully automatic driving is emerging as the approach to dramatically improve efficiency while at the same time leading to the goal of zero fatalities. This workshop will address robotics technologies, which are at the very core of this major shift in the automobile paradigm. Technologies related to this area, such as autonomous outdoor vehicles, achievements, challenges and open questions would be presented and discussed.

The selection process will be done through the same procedure than ITSC16 conference (peer review process using paperplazza) managed by dedicated Associated Editors.
We will propose 4 open sessions (1 invited keynote, 3 selected papers), and one Interactive session. The proposed list of areas and related sessions is the following:
Format of the paper:
Papers should be prepared according to the ITSC16 final camera ready format and should be 6 pages long. You must use the code 95vpj of the workshop when you submit your paper on paperplazza.
The detailed information on the paper format is available from the ITSC16 page.
Important dates (see
Previously, several workshops were organized in the near same field.
The 1st edition PPNIV'07 of this workshop was held in Roma during ICRA'07 (around 60 attendees),
the second PPNIV'08 was in Nice during IROS'08 (more than 90 registered people),
the third PPNIV'09 was in Saint-Louis (around 70 attendees) during IROS'09, the fourth edition PPNIV'12 was in Vilamoura (over 95 attendees) during IROS'12, the fifth edition PPNIV'13 was in Tokyo (over 135 attendees) during IROS'13, the sixth edition PPNIV'14 was in Chicago (over 100 attendees) during IROS'14, and the seventh edition PPNIV'15 was in Hamburg (over 155 attendees) during IROS'15.
Proceedings: The workshop proceedings will be published within the ITSC16 Proceedings.
Special issue: Selected papers will be considered for a special issue in the IEEE Transactions on IV . We will issue an open call, submissions will go through a separate peer review process.
IEEE-RAS TC on ITS: This workshop is organized in the framework of the IEEE Robotics and Automation's Technical Committee on: Autonomous Ground Vehicles and Intelligent Transportation Systems
