  • Introduction

    The field of robotics has grown tremendously in the last decade as new research has demonstrated its relevance and impact to fields as diverse as manufacturing, planetary exploration, medicine, healthcare, military, and consumer products. We have reached a turning point where this technology is moving from the purview of a handful of specialists (Mars rovers) to the general public (robotic car, household robots, elderly care, and unmanned search and rescue).

    The proposed Special Issue in Journal will provide an integrated platform that will embrace the multi-disciplinary nature of robotics. The Journal will be directed towards advanced studies related to automation and robotics and include core areas of concentration from each of the disciplines: Swarm Robotics, Robot actuation, locomotion, manipulation, dynamics, control (Mechanical Engineering); sensors, vision, motors (Electrical Engineering); artificial intelligence, human robot interactions (Computer Science).

    This Special Issue will provides aid in promoting close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its Members and Affiliates, and to this end holds meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion, sponsors appropriate periodicals and special technical publications, and through its committees studies and provides for the needs of its members and affiliates.

    Vision–Our Vision would be to become the most recognized and respected global organization in Robotics and Automation, Swarm Robotics.

    Relevant topics that would be considered for inclusion in this special issue include, but are not limited to:
