In the last decade, mobile robots have become very popular in various sectors, such as medicine, industry, and services, due to their ability to be remotely teleoperated using haptic feedback, move autonomously in an unknown environment, and accomplish tasks ordinarily performed by humans in hazardous areas. Mobile robots incorporate different features and approaches to function in an unknown environment through a combination of locomotion, perception, cognition, localization, and navigation operations. These features and approaches inspire the development of new ideas for improving and optimizing the abilities of mobile robots.
This Special Issue aims to publish research papers and reviews articles focused on the theory, design, teleoperation, and control of mobile robots.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Artificial intelligence for autonomous mobile robots;
- Locomotion mechanism design;
- Bio-inspired mobile robots;
- Teleoperation, haptic feedback, and control of mobile robots;
- Applications of mobile robots;
- Mobile robot algorithm design;
- Cooperative mobile robots;
- Sensor fusion and perception in mobile robots;
- Mobile robots for human–robot interaction.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
