The recent widespread use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) as well as
their reduced costs allow their application in real-life remote sensing
scenarios. For this reason, several of the tasks that are usually performed
by humans could now benefit from an UAV-based approach, e.g., to operate in
hazardous environments, automatize tedious tasks, or even just improve
system performance. Moreover, UAVs can equip different kinds of cameras,
such as RGB, depth RGB, and/or infrared, which can be useful for different
application contexts. Different from traditional techniques, which often
require monitoring different locations, there is no need to duplicate the
acquisition devices, drastically reducing costs and allowing a
better-quality camera of the same price. In addition, in some specific
fields, the use of UAVs can have a high impact. For example, in
environmental anomaly detection, old techniques were based on satellite
acquisitions. However, the high distance of the acquisition source could
hinder the detection of small objects. In surveillance, the use of UAVs can
help to cover large areas with less effort with respect to the normal
cameras that can only cover fixed locations. Examples of other possible
applications are environmental data acquisition, smart agriculture,
surveillance, monitoring of dangerous areas, search-and-rescue operations,
anomaly detection, etc.


This Special Issue is looking for new solutions for tasks that can be eased
by using UAVs, novel deep network architectures that are especially focused
on UAV-captured videos, and possible new tasks on which the use of UAVs can
be beneficial. 


For this Special Issue, we welcome the most recent advancements that are
related but not limited to:


* Anomaly detection using UAV videos;

* Persons recognition using UAV videos or images;

* Person re-identification using UAV videos or images;

* Surveillance strategies using UAV videos;

* New techniques for map reconstruction using UAV videos or images;

* Novel strategies for combining simultaneous videos from more than one UAV;

* Novel adaptive strategies to automatize UAV exploration according to an
unknown environment;

* Solutions for novel tasks exploiting UAV videos and images.
