Interests: human-robot interaction; mobile robots; learning; humanoid robots; emotion recognition
The development of robots and artificial agents conceived for being part of our everyday life is a matter of fact. Even if almost all robots and devices are equipped with multiple sensors, many limitations of these autonomous systems are still evident: social robots have difficulty understanding human emotions and intentions, and thus they may fail to reply appropriately; autonomous mobile robots struggle to have full knowledge of the surrounding environment to make the right choice at the right moment; industrial robots have difficulty understanding and learning the needs of their human partners.
For these reasons, we need to pursue a more integrated perspective, one which involves a strict connection between multimodal sensing and actuation, in order to develop intelligent machines able to understand human behavior and act accordingly.
The purpose of this Special Issue is, therefore, to gather the latest research in the field of human-robot interaction, focusing on the integration of multimodal sensing approaches with the understanding, planning, and acting strategies of autonomous robots.
We strongly encourage the submission of papers focusing on the keywords below, but works on related topics will also be considered.

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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
