The term “Intelligent Autonomous Vehicles” relates to self-driving vehicles and mobile robots capable of performing motion control tasks in unstructured or partially structured environments with no assistance from human operators. They can operate either in land, water or air environments. Recent developments are aimed at empowering vehicles with abilities to perform complex navigation and motion tasks in co-operation with each other, with human operated systems and with the immediate surrounding environment.

The TC 7.5 provides an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners from the fields of land, air and marine operations of autonomous systems to discuss common theoretical and practical problems, describe scientific and commercial applications and explore avenues for future research.
