Call For Papers
Robotics and Autonomous Systems will carry articles describing fundamental developments in the field of robotics, with special emphasis on autonomous systems. An important goal of this journal is to extend the state of the art in both symbolic and sensory based robot control and learning in the context of autonomous systems.

Robotics and Autonomous Systems will carry articles on the theoretical, computational and experimental aspects of autonomous systems, or modules of such systems.

Application environments of interest include industrial, outdoor and outer space where advanced robotic techniques are required for autonomous systems to accomplish goals without human intervention; this includes robotics for hazardous and hostile environments.

Robotics and Autonomous Systems will carry brief reports on international meetings in the field, as well as an occasional multi-author debate on current topics of interest. Forthcoming meetings of importance will be listed.

In more detail, the journal will cover the following topics:

• Symbol mediated robot behavior control;
• Sensory mediated robot behavior control;
• Active sensory processing and control;
• Industrial applications of autonomous systems;
• Sensor modeling and data interpretation e.g. models and software for sensor data integration, 3D scene analysis, environment description and modeling, pattern recognition;
• Robust techniques in AI and sensing e.g. uncertainty modeling, graceful degradation of systems;
• Robot programming e.g. on-line and off-line programming, discrete event dynamical systems, fuzzy logic;
• CAD-based robotics e.g. CAD-based vision, reverse engineering;
• Robot simulation and visualization tools;
• Tele-autonomous systems;
• Micro electromechanical robots;
• Robot control architectures;
• Robot planning, adaptation and learning.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Autonomous Driving and Driver Assistance Systems
Submission Date: 2018-02-15

With the recent interest of all major players in the automotive industry, the time when intelligent vehicles begin to drive autonomously seems to be right around the corner. This implies a boost in the development on novel algorithms, techniques and methodologies with direct application not only to Autonomous Driving but also to advanced Driver Assistance Systems. This special issue will cover all these advances. The expected topics include, but are not limited to the following: - Vision, lidar and radar perception; - Sensor calibration-Multimodal sensor fusion; - Perception in challenging conditions; - Scene understanding; - Software architectures for autonomous vehicles; - Special sensors for autonomous navigation; - Driver-vehicle interaction and assisted driving; - Navigation, motion planning and maneuvering; - Vehicle dynamics and control; - Outdoors SLAM and Visual Odometry; - Heads up Display for Vehicle to Driver Communication; - Augmented Reality in DAS-V2V and V2I communications.
