Cooperative Interacting Vehicles 2018 Summer school

The Summer School on “Cooperative Interacting Vehicles” aims at gathering Ph.D. students and Young Professionals from Universities and Research Institutions for tutorials, keynotes, poster presentations and interactive workshop sessions on

  • Cooperative Perception
  • Cooperative Motion Planning
  • Implicit & Explicit Interaction

It is jointly organized by MINES ParisTech (France) and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT, Germany). We gratefully acknowledge support from the Priority Programme “Cooperative Interacting Automobiles” of the German Science Foundation (DFG), the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society and the International Research Chair Drive for All (MINES ParisTech, with sponsors PSA, Safran and Valeo).

We are looking forward to a fruitful and inspiring event.
