Special Issue "Biologically Inspired Robotic Mechanisms, Control, and Multimodal Sensor Fusion for Human-Robot Coexistence"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: biologically inspired robot and control; multi-DOF robotic systems; humanoids; wearable robots; human–robot interaction system and control
Robotic applications involving interactions between multi-DOF robotic systems and robot–environment and human–robot interactions play a more significant role in our daily lives that ever before and expanding rapidly. Biologically inspired robotic techniques to overcome existing limitations foster the dissemination of new robotic discoveries and applications that help and support humans. Although great progress has been achieved in recent years, there are still open issues due to the limitations in technology combined with insufficient knowledge about humans. Designing innovative robotic mechanisms, developing efficient and reliable control strategies, and realizing new cognitive sensor systems akin to humans or animals can be key technologies to advance current robot technologies. In addition, in recent years, applying data-driven technologies such as machine learning for perception and reinforcement learning for control to unexplored problems is another promising research direction.
Attention in this Special Issue is particularly focused on the various integrations of robotics with biologically inspired mechatronics systems and control technology, and cognitive sensor systems with the goal of developing new multidimensional robotic service. This includes mechanism modeling and design, intelligent control, cognitive algorithm and sensor fusion, robot learning, and cognitive modeling for human–robot collaboration.

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.
