Special Issue Information
Research into the design, control and application of advanced robots has increased during the last few decades, with many different and interesting projects being developed. Advanced robots have many promising applications in various areas of modern society. These robots could yield significant positive impacts on society, but they also carry the potential to cause negative impacts. Therefore, these impacts should be considered and discussed from the perspectives of not only technical solutions but also relevant social issues including safety, law, ethics, psychology and philosophy.
Contributions from all fields related to advanced robots are welcome in this Special Issue, particularly the following:
- Human–robot interactions (HRI) and social robotics;
- Safety issues for advanced robots and autonomous systems;
- Legal and ethical issues for advanced robots;
- Advanced industrial robots for future manufacturing;
- Healthcare and medical applications;
- Service and assistance;
- Entertainment and education;
- Robotics and autonomous driving;
- Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics;
- Bio-inspired robotics.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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 monthly 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
