This talk describes research on the development of autonomous vehicles at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil. The talk will focus on modelling and control of two mobile robotic platforms: a robotic airship for monitoring in the Brazilian Amazon, and a scaled multi-traction vehicle for agricultural applications in uneven terrains. Descriptions of both projects will be presented, along with challenges in dealing with control, motion planning and vision estimation.

Dr. Ely Paiva is a Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil (www.fem.unicamp.br/~elypaiva). Previously he was a researcher at the Research Center Renato Archer (CTI), when he served in a team responsible for the modelling, simulation and control of the pioneer AURORA airship which in the year 2000 made the first autonomous flight of an outdoor unmanned airship. Presently, he is on a research leave at Concordia University, where he is working on the area of Optimal Guidance and Motion Planning.
