Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

Recent research in the field of robotics aims to use auxiliary sensors to help improve the robustness, flexibility, and accuracy of the control system. The information obtained from sensors is used as feedback in the system control loop. In recent years, a manifold of sensor types has been developed to perform specific tasks which vary in their features and operation design. Due the fact that industrial systems are becoming increasingly more interconnected, the current control schemes need to be updated in order to deal with the system dynamics, system faults, etc. In recent years, there has been increased research attempting to make steps toward the design and development of high-performance and autonomous robotic systems by means of control strategies able to achieve optimal performance at all times and in all circumstances with minimum user interaction.

We welcome any contributions within the general scope of the Special Issue theme “Applications and Optimal Control of Vision Robot Systems”. Review papers are also welcome. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Motion planning
Robot control
Control in mechatronic systems
Human–robot interaction
Multi-robot systems
Robotics and intelligent control
Visual servoing systems
Sensors and actuators
Task planning and monitoring
Manipulation and grasping
Visual control law
Vision-guided robot

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. Robotics 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.
