Robots are mechatronic systems of which functionalities and tasks are related to mechanical actions either with humans or with other systems. Therefore, the mechanical design can be considered fundamental to ensure the proper performance that are expected by a robot in an assigned task. In this Special Issue we have directed the main attention to the design and development of the mechanical design of robots by looking at the advances in solutions and procedures that can provide enhancements in robot structures and their functionalities even in new areas of application. Papers are solicited not only in the following topics that are related to robot structures and architectures:
- Mechanism designs
- Kinematics of robots
- Robot path planning
- Experimental evaluations
- Control mechanisms
- Multi-body dynamics design
- Design procedures
- CAD design and simulations

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. Inventions 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 1400 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.
