Special Issue on Underwater Robotics

Published in Robotics, an Open Access Journal by MPDI

Dear Colleague,

We invite you to contribute to a new special issue on the topic of Underwater Robotics, to be published in the journal Robotics.

Robotics has long established itself as the key technology for the exploration and exploitation of the underwater environment and of other activities that are performed under the sea surface. The richness of resources in the underwater environment and its intrinsic hostility motivate and challenge science and technology to conceive and construct ever more eff­icient robotic tools and techniques.

In particular, there is a great demand for increasing the functional and behavioral autonomy of underwater robots; facilitating human/machine interaction; reducing costs, and increasing safety, reliability and eff­iciency. This Special Issue will highlight challenges and needs and will provide visibility for recent breakthroughs.

In relation to underwater robotics, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Vehicles and drones

Underwater manipulation

Swarm of heterogeneous robotic agents

Robotic sensing and communication

M/M interaction

Decision support and safe operation

Educational and recreational robotics

Submissions can be made until September 30, 2019 (see the call for paper at


for further information). All submitted articles will go through a peer-review process.
