Robotic Control Systems is a new specialty section available through the community-run open-access journal Frontiers in Robotics and AI.

The new section Robotic Control Systems is led by Specialty Chief Editor Prof Gianluca Antonelli from the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, Italy.

This section addresses control aspects of robotic systems. “Robots” and “Control”, both interpreted in a wide sense, are fundamental actors of multiple aspects of our life, and the applications of robotic control systems are wide. We will take into consideration virtually any domain in which robots play a role; a non-exhaustive list of applications concerns industrial and service robotics, medical robotics, marine and spatial robotics, entertainment, search & rescue, monitoring, surveillance, agricultural, transportation and so on.

Following the natural interdisciplinary nature of industrial and advanced robotics, we welcome contribution addressing topics as: automatic control, computer science, mathematics, mechanical engineering, cognitive science, bio-inspired disciplines and so forth. However, the key word of this section is “control”; contribution of new, transferable scientific insight.

Part of the “Frontiers in” journal series, Frontiers in Robotics and AI offers:

Interactive and collaborative review to ensure quality, rigor, and fairness

World-class editorial boards for all specialty sections

Open Access for maximum visibility and discoverability

– Advanced article-level analytics and demographics to track reach and impact, including social media buzz
