Interests: robotics (marine, aviation, space, medicine, welfare, etc.); system engineering (dynamics and control)
Living organisms’ mechanisms have evolved in order to adapt to their natural environment. The evolved mechanisms have excellent maneuvering capacities, and new robotics and machinery have often been created by implementation of biomimetic approaches. This special issue, therefore, focuses on technologies of modern biomimetic robotics, such as robotic fish, insects, birds, mammalians, reptiles, etc., to provide fruitful ideas for the creation of the next generation of machinery in society.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was not originally copyrighted and if it has been extended substantially and completely re-written). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Robotics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
