Sharework project promotes a new Call for Papers for the Special Issue: “Industrial Robotics: Design and Applications” of the Applied Sciences Journal. This Special Issue has the objective to collect and present novel methodologies, methods and software tools pushing the synergetic interaction and integration between AI and robotics in industrial scenarios.
The deadline for manuscripts submissions is the 22nd of February 2022.
Industrial robots are playing a key role in modern industrial automation, where collaborative robots are being used for assembly, inspection and many other “common” tasks in order to increase the troughput of production systems and enhance working conditions for human workers. However, industrial implementations often do not fully exploit the great advancemenets made in research fields such as robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The “Industrial Robotics: Design and Applications” Special Issue is a great opportunity to present papers that investigate the use of Artificial Intelligence to enhance the cognitive capabilities of industrial robotics to achieve increasingly flexible and intelligent behaviours.
Papers submitted can be focused on these different key topics:
- Applied Artificial Intelligence
- Long-term Autonomy of Industrial Robots in Dynamic Environments
- Human-aware Motion planning and Control
- Combined Task and Motion Planning
- Multi-robot and/or Multi-agent Coordination
- novel Sensing and Grasping Technologies for HRI
- Human-centered Design of Industrial robots and Robotized Workcells
- Cybersecurity and Safety Issues of Industrial Robots for HRI
- Environment Cognition for Advanced Control
- Human-factor and Experiments
Sharework partner Dr. Alessandro Umbrico, from the National Research Council of Italy (CNR), will review the papers submitted within this Call for Papers.
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging into this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consdertion for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website.
