Modern technologies based on electrical engineering, robotics, actuators, mathematical modelling design and optimization are the backbone of our civilization today. Many technological problems and challenges were and still are the topic of applied mathematics, from antiquity to the present. Since the beginning of our civilization, the human race has had to confront numerous technological challenges, such as finding the optimal solution of various problems including control technologies, power sources design, applications in the economy, robotics, mechanical engineering and energy distribution amongst others. These examples encompass both ancient as well as modern technologies like the first electrical energy distribution network in USA etc. Some of the key principles formulated in the middle ages were done by Johannes Kepler (Problem of the wine barrels), Johan Bernoulli (brachystochrone problem), Leonhard Euler (Calculus of Variations), Lagrange (Principle multipliers), that were formulated primarily in the ancient world and are of a geometric nature. All those methods and more are widely used in modern engineering design. This special issue, based on selected the best papers from AETA 2018, discuss recent advances in electro-engineering design, control and modelling with modern mathematical methods, including very specific, as the evolutionary computation is. Potential topics include, but are not limited, to:
- Various actuators use and design of its devices with bioinspired algorithms;
- Robotic and sensors.
- Robotic system control.
- Design of electronic devices – classical and unconventional approach.
- Memristors: modelling, simulations and its use.
- IoT, its monitoring, design and use.
- Electronic devices and its critical regimes (i.e. strange dynamics, hidden attractors, chaos)

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Actuators is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
