Special Issue "Biorobotics and Bionic Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2021.
Interests: applied biology; biorobotics; biohybrid systems; neuroethology; ethorobotics; zoology
The increasingly complex and wide use of robots is driving a growing number of scientists to investigate and understand processes and mechanisms evolved by living organisms to face particular problems in order to reproduce these strategies in artificial agents.
These agents are far from traditional robots used in industry that are programmed to fulfill specific tasks in structured environments.
Biorobotics and bionics are relatively young scientific and technological fields that include several disciplines such as robotics, biology, medicine, micro-nanotechnology, and artificial intelligence.
Bioinspired robots and bionic systems have a broad range of applications, including the exploration of hostile/hazardous environments for humans; the employment in disaster scenarios; or the use as service/social robots to improve the quality of life, such as prostheses, rehabilitation equipment, and assistive tools.
This Special Issue welcomes original research and review articles that cover, but are not limited to:
- Biomimetic and bioinspired artifacts;
- Biohybrid systems;
- Bionic sensors;
- Micro-electromechanical systems;
- Multi-agent systems;
- Soft robotics;
- Swarm intelligence.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
