To realize intelligent mobile robots, self-localization, map generation,
and autonomous exploration of unknown environments are necessary.
Probabilistic processing can be applied to overcome the problems of
uncertainties in movement and measurement errors. Probabilistic robotics
and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technologies are thus
strongly related, and have been the focus of several extant studies.
Owing to the increasing practical applications such as automatic driving
and cleaning robots, the applicability of these techniques is increasing.
To facilitate innovation, various papers pertaining to these topics are
called for, including those on the development of practical technologies.
