Call For Papers
Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronic control and systems thinking in the design of products and manufacturing processes. It relates to the design of systems, devices and products aimed at achieving an optimal balance between basic mechanical structure and its overall control. The purpose of this journal is to provide rapid publication of topical papers featuring practical developments in mechatronics. It will cover a wide range of application areas including consumer product design, instrumentation, manufacturing methods, computer integration and process and device control, and will attract a readership from across the industrial and academic research spectrum. Particular importance will be attached to aspects of innovation in mechatronics design philosophy which illustrate the benefits obtainable by an a priori integration of functionality with embedded microprocessor control. A major item will be the design of machines, devices and systems possessing a degree of computer based intelligence. The journal seeks to publish research progress in this field with an emphasis on the applied rather than the theoretical. It will also serve the dual role of bringing greater recognition to this important area of engineering.

Mechatronics publishes the following types of papers:
• Regular Articles should describe original research of high quality in the field of Mechatronics.
• Review Articles will generally be specially commissioned, however, suggestions for topics and authors are welcomed by the Editor-in-Chief.
•Technical Notes provide rapid publication of important new contributions.

Special Issue on Physical Human-Robot Interaction and Co-Manipulation: Mechatronics Approaches
Submission Date: 2021-06-01

Physical Human-Robotics Interaction (pHRI) consists of physical interactions between humans and robots in order to perform common or independent tasks in a shared and close area by ensuring certain performances, safety and human ergonomics. The interaction can optionally include contact (either continuously or intermittently) where the level of leadership of each partner (human and robot) has to be defined. Applications of pHRI are nowadays clear, such as Industry of future like Industry 4.0, human rehabilitation, sport training assistance, or medical and surgery assistance. One example of interesting and generic pHRI industrial task is co-manipulation of objects for their storage, transportation, assembly, or fabrication. In this, applying the established tools in term of modeling, control and trajectory generation from standard robotic manipulation is not anymore sufficient to accomplish the tasks. The presence of the human through the comanipulated object introduces several challenges: uncertainties in the overall model, unpredictability in the human behavior, human ergonomics and safety during the interaction, possible human tremor or fatigue disturbing the robot during the task, limited measurement for the overall interaction,…. Therefore, considerable efforts are being made to target efficient pHRI tasks and we witness an increase of publications of this field in the literature over these last years. The objective of this special issue is to collect articles that report the most recent accomplishments and results in the area of human-robot interaction. The special issue is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present the context or applications of their pHRI works, the challenges they are faced with, and the scientific approaches they propose to handle these, as well as the results obtained. Contributions from industry are encouraged, submitted manuscripts are expected to report experimental results and papers must contain originality. Potential topics include but are not limited to: Innovative mechatronic tools for pHRI Innovative mechatronic tools for safety or ergonomics during pHRI Actuation and measurement in pHRI Novel robotic mechanisms and systems for pHRI Parameters identification and signals estimation in pHRI Control in pHRI Tasks or trajectory planning in pHRI Important dates Initial submission deadline: June 1, 2021 Completion of first review: September 1, 2021 Submission of revised paper: November 1, 2021 Completion of second review: December 15, 2021 Submission of revised paper: February 1, 2022 Completion of final review: March 1, 2022 Submission of final manuscripts and Copyright forms : March 15, 2021 Publication: June 1, 2022
