Special Issue Information
Bionic and flexible robotics is an emerging subfield of traditional robotics inspired by biological creatures and activities. This field is becoming more popular because of its several advantages: safe human–machine interaction, working in inaccessible spaces, adaptability to wearable devices, handling delicate objects, etc. As of now, we have come to understand that bionic and flexible robotics offers an exceptional solution for any kind of application that involves intimate human contact (e.g., exoskeletons, prosthetics, surgery, rehabilitation). It is a very young research area with many possibilities to solve optimal shape, modeling, and control issues in flexible robots due to their inherent hyper-redundancy.
The Special Issue aims to publish research papers with theoretical and application-based contributions focusing on novel designs, optimal shape estimation, kinematic modeling, control, soft actuators, analysis, simulations, and experiments for bionic and flexible robots. Review papers are also welcome so that we may provide a comprehensive view of this field.

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. Robotics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
