Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In contemporary mechatronics systems, the complexity of the mechanical and electronics parts imposes intelligence embedded to the system. The advancement in mechatronics design urges for sophisticated control laws as well as advanced feedback from smart sensors. Recent developments in artificial intelligence and machine vision allow the use of advanced algorithms into a variety of applications in order solve problems that arise when implementing sophisticated mechatronics systems. This Special Issue will accept contributions where the concepts of mechatronics, machine vision, and artificial intelligence intersect and coexist in a congruous manner. The overall objective of the Special Issue is to render the sine qua non role of artificial intelligence and machine vision in modern mechatronics systems.

The topics the Special Issue will cover include applications of artificial intelligence and machine vision to any of, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Intelligent robotic systems (including surface, underwater and flying platforms);
  • Instrumentation and measurement;
  • Advanced manufacturing systems;
  • Industrial automation;
  • Automotive and transportation systems;
  • Sophisticated construction systems;
  • Surveillance and security systems;
  • Power systems;
  • Quality control;
  • ICT and robotics in agriculture;
  • Healthcare/medical automated systems;
  • Space exploration.

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. Machines 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 1000 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.
