Topic: Recent Advances in Mobile Robotics Navigation
Autonomous navigation is the intersection of many different basic research areas in robotics. 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.
Topic: Autonomous Robots in Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, is transforming how we do business. One of the key technologies driving this revolution is autonomous robots. These robots have the ability to operate independently and make decisions based on their environment, without the need for human intervention. This topic explores the opportunities and challenges of using autonomous robots in Industry 4.0.
Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to:
- Applications of autonomous robots in manufacturing, logistics, and other industries
- The Impact of autonomous robots on productivity, safety, and quality in the workplace
- The role of artificial intelligence and machine learning in enabling autonomous robots
- Ethical considerations in the use of autonomous robots, including issues related to job displacement and privacy
- Strategies for integrating autonomous robots into existing production systems
- The evolution of autonomous robot technology and its potential future applications
We welcome contributions from researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in the field of autonomous robots and Industry 4.0.
