Special Issue "Intelligent Technologies and Robotics"

Dear Colleagues,

Robotics is progressing at a much faster pace than ever before. This progress is synergistically stimulated by the cross-cutting, transformational effects of artificial intelligence (AI) and intelligent technologies. It is crucial to foster a greater awareness of this co-creation process and to give adequate consideration to societal needs, sustainability perspectives, and accountability.

This Special Issue is open to interdisciplinary approaches, and it aims at exhibiting the latest research achievements, findings, and ideas in the areas of “Intelligent Technologies and Robotics”. The issue will contain revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers that were presented at the 4th International Conference on Intelligent Technologies and Applications (INTAP'21), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Papers are welcomed on topics that are related to intelligent technologies within the aspects of theory, design, practice, and applications for robotics, including, but not limited to:

  • Machine and mechanism design
  • Industrial IT
  • Intelligent monitoring
  • Robotics and vision
  • Collaborative robots
  • Urban ocean technology
  • Haptics
  • Theoretical and computational kinematics/dynamics
  • Dynamics of machinery and multibody systems
  • Control issues
  • Machine intelligence
  • Intelligent applications
  • Educational robotics

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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
