Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nature is one of the best sources to inspire ideas. Many robots and methods are inspired by animals and their behaviours. Today, many challenges still exist on our way to building more intelligent and mimic robots, such as creating more compact and powerful actuators, multi-modal locomotion, and more intelligent sensing and decision. Breakthroughs are expected to be found by learning from nature to achieve better robotics and biomimetics.

This Special Issue aims to present the newest output and result in the areas of “Recent Advances in Robotics and Biomimetics”. The Special Issue will contain revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers that were presented at the 2023 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics (IEEE ROBIO 2023, http://robio2023.org/).

Papers are welcomed on topics that are related to robotics and biomimetics, including but not limited to:

  • Bioinspired robots (swimming, creeping, and flying robots).
  • Humanoid robots (mechanism, sensing, and control).
  • Applications of robotics and AI.
  • New method and technology in robotics and biomimetics.
  • Soft robotics and new concept robot.
  • Multi-robot systems and collaborative 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 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. Biomimetics 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 2200 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.
