In the last decades, a growing interest in humanoid robotics has been observed. Not surprisingly, a complete humanoid robot would be the holy grail of service robotics. A fully capable humanoid robot is presently almost as desirable as unreachable. Although impressive advances have been made, there is still a long way to go. There are still many problems that require robust solutions in order to develop such a robot:
- Human–robot interaction;
- Perception and sensor integration;
- Decision making and artificial intelligence;
- Locomotion (legged);
- Navigation (legged and wheeled);
- High- and low-level humanoid control;
- Humanoid applications of soft robotics;
- Low-cost humanoid manufacturing (including 3d printing).
The aim of this Special Issue is to propose potential solutions to these problems and therefore to contribute to the final purpose of building reliable and affordable humanoid robots.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. 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 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 1600 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.
