Call for Paper on Topic: Recent Advances in Mobile Robotics Navigation
Autonomous navigation is the intersection of many different basic research areas in robotics. Moving robots from one place to another requires perception, state estimation (e.g., location, mapping, global representation), path planning, motion planning, and control techniques. The smooth movement of artificial agents, without collision, attracts large amounts of attention and research and has led to hundreds of approaches over decades. Moving the robot from one position to another requires a variety of perception techniques, state estimation techniques (e.g., positioning, mapping, global representation), path planning, motion planning, and control techniques.
A fully autonomous mobile robot has the ability to:
• Gain information about the environment.
• Work for an extended period without human intervention.
• Move either all or part of itself throughout its operating environment without human assistance.
• Avoid situations that are harmful to people, property, or itself, unless those are part of its design specifications. An autonomous mobile robot may also learn or gain new capabilities like adjusting strategies for accomplishing its task(s) or adapting to changing surroundings.
This topic aims to present current and innovative research which contributes to the improvement of the navigation abilities of mobile robots.
Authors can submit their manuscripts through the online submission system. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the topic 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 editors for perusal first.
