Special Issue "Intelligent Robotics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Robotics is a very important domain for Artificial Intelligence (AI) research. From the beginning of AI, robotics has always played an important role both in providing real problems that need intelligent behavior and in enabling AI to perform tasks that involve physical interaction with the real world. However, the Robotics and AI communities have often worked separately and with little sharing of the developments in both areas.
Intelligent Robotics, where AI and Robotics merge to provide better solutions, is an essential area when designing robots or teams of robots that perform complex tasks in environments that are shared with humans. These robots must be endowed with high levels of adaptability to changes in task or the environment, so as to enrich their performance over their lifetime and enable a richer and more natural interaction with humans. In some cases, these robots will be mobile, work in teams, and be connected to a larger ecosystem that, in addition to robots, encompasses other intelligent networked devices, thus scaling to arbitrarily larger distributed intelligent and pervasive systems. Simulation and modeling can play an important role. Intelligent robotics can provide improvements in many aspects of human life as important as health, mobility, work, education, recreation, and domestic tasks.
This Special Issue intends to provide a forum for the dissemination of works that exploit this synergy between AI and Intelligent Robotics to solve complex tasks. Recent developments in both fields, together with hardware developments that make available to robots and other intelligent physical agents a higher computing power and more capable sensors and actuators, provide the grounding for innovative solutions lying in the intersection of AI and Intelligent Robotics, which may be published in this Special Issue.

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 1500 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.
