*S. Farokh Atashzar (New York University, USA) *
   - *Mahdi Tavakoli (University of Alberta, Canada)*
   - *Ana Luisa Trejos (University of Western Ontario, Canada)*
   - *Simon DiMaio (Intuitive Surgical)*


*Keywords*: COVID-19 Pandemic, Medical Robotics, AI for Medicine, Smart
Digital Health, Autonomy for Telemedicine, Internet of Things, Smart
Wearables.

*"**Frontiers in Robotics and AI has waived article processing charges
until 31st July 2020 for manuscripts submitted in response to the COVID-19
pandemic and established a priority peer-review process.**"*


*About this Research Topic:*

There are currently over six million cases of patients with a confirmed
link to COVID-19. Due to the lack of a vaccine or proven antiviral
treatment, prevention, and containment of the virus depend on social
distancing, isolation, and quarantine. This, combined with the fact that
most of the healthcare systems capacity has been focused on fighting the
COVID-19 pandemic, has resulted in limiting or pausing of less urgent care
such as physical neurorehabilitation and assessment and non-emergency
outpatient procedures. This has left individuals with illnesses, disorders,
and chronic conditions without the help, or medical intervention they need
to recover or manage their conditions; creating a growing backlog of
procedures and treatments.

Given that the second and third waves of the outbreak are expected in the
coming months worldwide, it is important to systematically address these
issues using advanced and novel technological solutions. This highlights
the need for new ways of delivering various healthcare services to patients
in need of check-ups, diagnosis, therapy, surgery, physical and mental
rehabilitation, imaging, etc. These urgent needs fall across the continuum
of care spanning prevention, acute care, chronic care, and end-of-life care
and can be addressed if we start to innovate now.

In times of a health crisis such as the novel coronavirus pandemic, medical
robotic systems, autonomous agents, and AI technologies can play a
significant role by augmenting and assisting the healthcare system and
safeguarding public health in various ways. The aforementioned technologies
can facilitate the prevention, containment, and mitigation of the
coronavirus disease and provide general support for patients and medical
professionals, alleviating the burden placed on healthcare systems during
this crisis.

This Special Issue aims to collect opinions, reviews, commentaries,
perspectives, and novel research articles that focus on the use of
robotics, autonomous systems, and AI for enhanced health care delivery
during and following the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to understand the
existing challenges, potential solutions, and future vision for the
benefits offered by robotics, automation, and AI for healthcare delivery.



*Topics of Interest include but are not limited to:*

   - Robotic autonomy and AI for augmenting the delivery of
   non-urgent/non-emergent healthcare services during COVID-19 pandemic
   - Telehealth and AI technologies for remote assessment, diagnosis,
   monitoring, and treatment.
   - Robotics for telesurgery, telerehabilitation, tele-assistance, and
   tele-assessment to protect frontline healthcare workers and patients.
   - Semi-autonomous robotic system and shared autonomy for healthcare
   delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic.
   - Robotic and AI technologies for independent living and in-home and
   long-term care of high-risk populations.
   - Autonomous robotics for disinfection, materials handling, and
   logistics in healthcare facilities.
   - Robotic and augmented-reality simulators for training healthcare
   workers.
   - Wearable technologies and the Internet of Medical Things for
   monitoring COVID-19 symptoms.
   - Social robotics for supporting mental health.
   - 3D-printing technologies for medical equipment manufacture.
