Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Robotic positioning and navigation is an established research field topic: emerging indoor positioning technologies, like Wi-Fi or BLE fingerprinting or visible light communications, are introducing newcomers to this research field. Although there are many well-know deterministic and probabilistic models for indoor positioning technologies, some novel approaches are using state-of-the-art machine and deep learning models to find hidden patterns in the raw data, improve knowledge on this topic, and reduce positioning errors.   

This Special Issue encourages authors, from academia and industry, to submit new research results about positioning and navigation models based on machine learning for robotic systems. The Special Issue topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Fingerprint-based positioning;
  • Inertial-based positioning;
  • Positioning-based visible light communications;
  • Angle of arrival determination;
  • Clustering;
  • Anomaly detection;
  • Regression;
  • Sensor fusion;
  • Collaborative positioning;
  • Novel applications based on machine/deep learning and positioning data.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 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. AI 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 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.
