[robotics-worldwide] [journals] Special issue "Sensors and Perception Systems for Mobile Robot Navigation"

Giovanni Muscato-3
(We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this announcement)

Dear Colleagues,

Sensors are a crucial part of a robotic system, since they provide the necessary information to make the system itself aware of its own status and to properly interact with its surrounding environment. The overall sensing system constitutes a block of a general robotic system architecture which is typically referred to as perception. The term perception encloses a wide variety of solutions including both sensing devices and information extraction from the raw data.
It can be easily figured out how closely related the perception and the intended application of the robotic system are. The perception block design changes whether it has to be employed on a manipulator or a mobile platform, or depending on the type of environment considered, e.g. indoor or outdoor. On the other hand, the adoption of improved devices and sensing technologies has opened up a wider range of applications and to perform more complex tasks, which could not be addressed with earlier solutions.
In this Special Issue, you are invited to submit contributions describing the development of novel perception approaches for navigation in mobile robotics applications. Innovative processing algorithms, theoretical studies and experimental results on real vehicles are also welcomed. Particular emphasis will be given to exteroceptive sensors, which help a robot to be aware of its surrounding environment.

Potential topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

  *   Localization sensors for mobile robots
  *   Situation-awareness sensors for robots
  *   Terrain reconstruction sensors
  *   Sensor fusion algorithms
  *   Signal processing algorithms for sensors measurements
  *   Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) based sensors for mobile robotics

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.mdpi.com_journal_sensors_instructions&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=hGbszRIQgoKP5Ey5Xpg_9bO5QUxljhO2omPSM7qHKOw&s=1cy-rb-ED4ZjUZ4iSB15JFGhB9Tyg6gJJ83an78c5cg&e= > page.
