Special Issue in Sensors: New Advances in Robotically Enabled Sensing
Industry 4.0 (Fourth Industrial Revolution) is a further development stage in the organisation and management of the entire manufacturing industry, from embedded systems to cyber-physical systems. In this approach, machines no longer process the products; instead, the products communicate with the machine and tell it what to do.
In this Special Issue, we are keen to publish robust papers discussing any relevant Industry 4.0 approach. This can include but is not limited to, developments in "manufacturing", "material processing", "robotics", "inspection", "quality control", "welding", "additive manufacturing", "nondestructive testing/evaluation", "hybrid manufacturing and inspection", "structural integrity", "advanced materials", "material evaluation", etc. The authors are recommended to include discussions directly relevant to Industry 4.0, however, the papers addressing other topics, which can be potentially corresponded to Industry 4.0 (like robotics), will also be considered.
