Special Issue Information
As unmanned aerial vehicles become an increasingly mainstream technology and their utilisation more ubiquitous, the opportunities afforded by their becoming more autonomous and “intelligent” multiply. There is a wide variety of applications in which an ability for drones to operate semi-independently from a human pilot could bring substantial advantages. Autonomous decision-making based on information collected in real time and the ability for several drones to communicate and cooperate in the execution of a complex mission would open countless new possibilities.
For this Special Issue, we invite original contributions presenting advances in Artificial Intelligence (machine learning, visual pattern recognition, swarm intelligence, etc.) that significantly increase the autonomy of unmanned systems, whether operating individually or as a team. Rigorous theoretical or simulation-based studies, prototype implementation reports, and experimental results are equally welcome, as are comprehensive literature surveys and reviews. Innovative research on the interaction between humans and “intelligent” drones (interface design, concepts of operation, etc.) or the control of autonomous platforms is also of interest.

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. Drones 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 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.
