Invited talk on snake robotics at the 1st Conference on Policing in Smart Cities

Today, I delivered an invited talk at the 1st Conference on Policing in Smart Cities. Title: Snake Robots – State-of-the-art. Abstract: Snake robots could enable applications in demanding real-life operations, such as explorations of earthquake-hit areas, pipe inspections, fire-fighting and search-and-rescue (SAR) activities. This talk explores challenges and possibilities.

Special Issue "Advanced in Snake Robots of Bio-Inspired Robotics"

Dear colleagues, In general, bio-inspired robotics are often regarded as mere biomimicry. However, just as airplanes do not flap their wings like birds and automobiles do not walk like horses, it is not always best to imitate the forms and movements of living creatures in the field of engineering. In other words, Bio-inspired Robotics and Biomimetic Robotics are not the same things. Similar problems exist in snake-like robots, where the initial inspiration may come from living organisms, but

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
