Special Issue "Optimization of Motion Planning and Control for Automatic Machines, Robots and Multibody Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 March 2020.
Interests: motion planning and control; mechatronics systems; multibody systems; mechanical vibrations; state estimation
The optimization of motion and trajectory planning is an effective and usually costless approach to improve the performance of dynamic systems such as robots, mechatronic systems, automatic machines and multibody systems. Indeed, wise planning allows increasing precision and machine productivity while reducing vibrations, motion time, actuation effort and energy consumption. On the other hand, the availability of optimized methods for motion planning allows for cheaper and lighter construction of the system.
The issue of motion planning is also tightly linked with the synthesis of high-performance feedback and feedforward control schemes, which can either enhance the effectiveness of motion planning or compensate for its gaps.
I would like to invite you to contribute a paper to this Special Issue, which aims at collecting the most recent and cutting-edge developments on these relevant issues. Papers providing original results on theoretical studies as well as numerical or experimental applications on these topics, and to closely-related topics, are welcomed.

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 1800 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.
