Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The world’s civilization is rapidly evolving toward a massive deployment of automated machines in general and smart robots in particular. With the advance of various technologies such as sensing, planning, perception, control, machine intelligence, and cloud computing, future robots will be more skillful in handling all kinds of tasks in industry and society. Hence, it is important to keep track of the fast growth of theories and technologies which advance robotics and automation engineering.

In this Special Issue, we would like to select the best papers from the coming International Conference on Robotics and Automation Engineering, as well as to invite contributions of papers from authors outside the conference participants, in order to disseminate and share the recent progresses in the following areas:

  • Sensing and measurement in robotics and automation;
  • Planning and control in robotics and automation;
  • Modelling and simulation in robotics and automation;
  • Cognition and recognition in robotics and automation;
  • Grasping and manipulation in robotics and automation;
  • Wheeled and legged locomotion in robotics and automation;
  • Advanced robots for automated material handling;
  • Advanced robots for automated welding and painting;
  • Advanced robots for automated assembly;
  • Advanced robots for automated transportation;
  • Advanced robots for automated landing and unloading;
  • Key supporting technologies to robotics and automation

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.
