Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the emerging demand for integrated and safe robotic assistance, designing high-performance low-cost robot manipulators represents a new challenge today in many fields, including industry, medicine, education and space aerospace exploration . The key performance, cycling time, accuracy and repeatability, ease of programming, intelligence and safety, are important for those robots. Mechatronics, a discipline combining aspects from both mechanical hardware and servo software and control, is required to achieve these goals.

This Special Issue focuses on the design, implementation and control of innovative smart robotic devices such as arms, hands, sensors and actuators. We welcome submissions on a wide variety of topics, including (but not limited to) force and tactile sensing, grasping force control, neuromorphic control, low-power consumption arm and hand control strategies, vibration suppression, visual servoing, user interfaces, redundant and reconfigurable robots, human-robot collaboration, human-centric robotic solutions, multimodal sensing, sensor-based control, grasping planning and contact modelling. Additionally, articles could discuss artificial neural networks for intelligent grasping and manipulation.

We look forward to your valuable contribution.

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. Machines 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 2400 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.
