Robotic systems are beginning to conquer well- to partially-structured environments, such as human-challenging games and self-driving cars operating on well-known streets, but genuinely unstructured and dynamic environments still exceed the capabilities of robotic systems, mainly when robots must also operate with or around humans. This unsolved problem of teams of robots that are capable of adapting to real, unstructured, dynamic environments in real time alongside humans is of high importance to robotics research today, with significant applications for military, search and rescue, and other robot uses in the real world.

To illustrate, imagine a human-robot team operating in an environment that is entirely unknown, such as under a dense tree canopy, at a disaster site, underground, or underwater, where limited or no resources (GPS, comms, power) are available. Compound the difficulty with dynamic events that alter the environment or robotic perception of the environment, such as weather and environmental effects or the actions of other agents.

Successful operation of a robot or group of robots in these difficult environments requires solutions at the intersection of several of the challenging areas in robotics: the ability for robots to 1) perceive, reason, and act in dynamic, unstructured environments 2) alongside human teammates, and 3) at human-operational speeds.

IJRR announces a new Special Issue on Robot Teammates Operating in Dynamic, Unstructured Environments. Original submissions are sought to present advances in, but are not limited to:
Natural language understanding
Perception at rapid operational tempo
Hybrid metric-symbolic planning
Common-sense reasoning
Robust field robotics
Neuro-inspired architectures for control
Semantic perception
Online modeling for perception
Mobility over rough terrain
Cognitive architectures for control
Activity and gesture recognition
Inverse reinforcement learning
Inferring human intent
Learning from demonstration
Human-agent teaming
Research partnering and technology transition
Multi-robot systems experimentation
We encourage experimental results, comparison of results with existing datasets, the sharing of new datasets, and multimedia content (MM) such as data, code or videos. Please note that IJRR has no page limit on papers and is a leader in archival publishing of data sets, code and videos with papers.
