Call For Papers
Frontiers in Neurorobotics publishes rigorously peer-reviewed research in the science and technology of embodied autonomous neural systems. Specialty Chief Editors Alois C. Knoll and Florian Röhrbein at the Technische Universität München are supported by an outstanding Editorial Board of international experts. This multidisciplinary open-access journal is at the forefront of disseminating and communicating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to researchers, academics and the public worldwide.

Neural systems include brain-inspired algorithms (e.g. connectionist networks), computational models of biological neural networks (e.g. artificial spiking neural nets, large-scale simulations of neural microcircuits) and actual biological systems (e.g. in vivo and in vitro neural nets). The focus of the journal is the embodiment of such neural systems in artificial software and hardware devices, machines, robots or any other form of physical actuation. This also includes prosthetic devices, brain machine interfaces, wearable systems, micro-machines, furniture, home appliances, as well as systems for managing micro and macro infrastructures. Frontiers in Neurorobotics also aims to publish radically new tools and methods to study plasticity and development of autonomous self-learning systems that are capable of acquiring knowledge in an open-ended manner. Models complemented with experimental studies revealing self-organizing principles of embodied neural systems are welcome. Our journal also publishes on the micro and macro engineering and mechatronics of robotic devices driven by neural systems, as well as studies on the impact that such systems will have on our daily life.

Frontiers in Neurorobotics is member of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

Special Issue on Recent Advances in Image Fusion and Quality Improvement for Cyber-Physical Systems
Submission Date: 2022-11-30

Multi-source visual information fusion and quality improvement can help the robotic system to perceive the real world, and image fusion is a computational technique fusing the multi-source images from multiple sensors into a synthesized image that provides either comprehensive or reliable description, and quality improvement technique can be used to address the challenge of low-quality image analysis task. At present, a lot of brain-inspired algorithms methods (or models) are aggressively proposed to accomplish these two tasks, and the artificial neural network has become one of the most popular techniques in processing image fusion and quality improvement techniques in this decade, especially deep convolutional neural networks. This is an exciting research field for the research community of image fusion and there are many interesting issues remain to be explored, such as deep few-shot learning, unsupervised learning, application of embodied neural systems, and industrial applications. How to develop a sound biological neural network and embedded system to extract the multiple features of source images are basically two key questions that need to be addressed in the fields of image fusion and quality improvement. Hence, studies in this field can be divided into two aspects: first, new end-to-end neural network models for merging constituent parts during the image fusion process; Second, the embodiment of artificial neural networks for image processing systems. In addition, current booming techniques, including deep neural systems and embodied artificial intelligence systems, are considered as potential future trends for reinforcing the performance of image fusion and quality improvement. This Research Topic focuses on the new ideas, models, methods, and applications in artificial neural networks and embedded systems for image fusion and quality improvement.
