IN008:
Autonomous sensing systems in Earth and Space science





Session ID#: 22390

Session Description:
Autonomous sensing systems are now capable of gathering data for earth and space science and are the focus of research in many different domains. The systems being used and produced range from autonomous vehicles to sensor network systems. This session will cover the state of the art in the use of autonomous sensing systems to study many aspects of earth and space science. Papers are encouraged in the areas of terrestrial, underwater and air vehicles, planetary rovers as well as "stationary" sensor networks. This includes experimental trials and deployments of sensor network systems which use autonomy in order to perform better.

Papers are encouraged from students in these areas as the conference provides an ideal opportunity to get feedback on your work.
