Recent technological developments have led to the widespread use of mobile robot systems, in a large scope of applications in transportation, manufacturing, self-driving automobile, commercial and domestic services, surveillance and medical care, providing an emerging market with great potential. Researches on mobile robotics systems are multidisciplinary, covering control engineering, computer science, mechatronic engineering and bio-engineering, and including many technical aspects, such as perception, control, computer vision, artificial intelligence and sensor technologies. While existing technologies are developing rapidly, great challenges and issues in mobile robotic systems research still lie in the following areas: 1) mobility, 2) robust control of actuators, 3) navigation and mapping, 4) robust perception and 5) human-robot interaction. These may involve more technical aspects of sensor fusion, navigation, feature extraction, collision avoidance and so forth. To address these challenges, more advanced technologies in sensing and actuation are essential, which enable future mobile robots to operate effectively and autonomously in a greater range of real-world environments.
This special issue intends to provide a platform to gather the recent development of mobile robot systems and the associated research, and also to advance studies on the fundamental problems observed in mobile robots. We welcome state-of-the-art research papers on mobile robotic systems from a research perspective and an application perspective. Various multidisciplinary approaches or integrative contributions, including sensing, perception, motion control, navigation, learning and adaptation, fault tolerance, filtering, teleoperation, bio-inspired robots are also welcome to this Special Issue.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Motion control of mobile robot systems
- Robot navigation, localization and mapping
- Sensor fusion based control
- Perception and decision-making of mobile robots
- Computer vision and 3D sensing
- Mobile robot teleoperation
- Multiple mobile robot systems
- Human-robot interaction for mobile robots
- Automatic driving and assistant driving
- Bio-inspired control of mobile robots
- Learning and adaptation in mobile robots
- Fault tolerance and filtering

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 2000 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.
