Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Robotics is progressing at a much higher 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 & vision
  • collaborative robots
  • urban ocean technology
  • haptics
  • theoretical and computational kinematics/dynamics
  • dynamics of machinery and multi-body systems
  • control issues
  • machine intelligence
  • intelligent applications
  • educational robotics
