Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Symmetry and asymmetry are common in engineering science. For example, electronic rotors, aircraft wings, and spacecraft flywheel structures possess excellent symmetry in actuators. Due to machining defects, these controlled objects are practically asymmetric, and external perturbations somehow break the symmetry. Therefore, we need to design sophisticated algorithms to maintain these elegant systems. The design of control systems is critical to the safe operation of various mechanical systems such as space vehicles, maritime robotics, and micromechanical systems. Current research is more than adequate, but more refined, intelligent, low-resource-consumption technologies for control systems algorithms are still in short supply to accommodate the industry's growth. In this Special Issue, “Recent Progress in Robot Control Systems: Theory and Applications,” we aim to attract original research and survey papers reflecting the recent advances in the theory and methodology driving recent progress in control system design and applications.

Please note that all submitted papers must be within the general scope of Symmetry. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Intelligent computing and machine learning;
  • Planning, control and decision in robotics;
  • Online self-learning control and observer;
  • Fault-diagnosis and fault-tolerant control;
  • Data-driven approaches and applications;
  • Machine vision and 3D-reconstruction;
  • Integrated navigation and multi-sensor fusion.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
