Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

Robotics is an integrated field requiring knowledge of sensing, actuation, mechanics, behavior coordination, motion control, artificial intelligence, signal processing, decision making, data fusion, etc. It has witnessed great advances in recent years. A timely report of the recent progress in robotic intelligence is highly demanded. This Special Issue aims at exhibiting the latest research achievements, findings, and ideas in this area. The issue will contain revised and substantially-extended versions of selected papers that were presented at the 1st International Conference on Advanced Robotics and Intelligent Control (ICARIC 2018), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call. Papers are welcomed on topics that are related to mechanisms within the aspects of theory, design, practice, and applications for robotics, including, but not limited to:

  • Theoretical and computational kinematics
  • Mobile robots and manipulators
  • Advanced control technology
  • Deep learning and meta-optimization
  • Brain–machine interfaces
  • Dynamics of analog networks
  • Embodied robotics
  • Evolutionary robotics
  • Developmental robotics
  • Computational models of development
  • Cooperative robots and distributed control
  • Autonomous complex systems

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 350 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.
