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.
