Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are living inside an ocean of signals. Our mental capabilities of transforming signals into knowledge enable us to gain autonomy and adaptation in a dynamically changing environment. Similarly, robots are also living inside the same ocean of signals. Hence, it is our research goal to discover or invent the physical principles behind the transformations from sensory signals to knowledge, from one kind of knowledge into another kind of knowledge, and from knowledge back to control signals.

This Special Issue on “Artificial Intelligence for Autonomous Robots” welcomes original research works which address the above-mentioned transformations in the contexts of various application scenarios, such as autonomous robots for industry, agriculture, land transportation, maritime transportation, transportation in air, medical intervention, elderly care, home care, education, entertainment, general service, defense, etc.

Each submitted paper should clearly state: 1. the problem under investigation, 2. existing works, 3. proposed better solutions, 4. details of proposed solutions, and 5. the experimental results.

I look forward to receiving the submissions of your wonderful research works which will advance artificial intelligence and autonomous  robots to a new height.

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 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 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.
