Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The analysis and design of automatic control systems is essential to physically implementing and operating robotic systems. These functions are based on mathematical models defined for each physical system; however, there is no mathematical model that truly represents the dynamic behavior of a system. This in turn leads to great concern about how to overcome this issue. To compensate for modeling errors, different lines of research have been created. Such is the case for robust control, where it is assumed that the mathematical model has uncertainty (dynamic or parametric) during the analysis stage so that the results obtained are closer to reality than in cases where uncertainty is not considered. Robotic systems are dynamic systems with multiple applications in industry. One example is manipulator robots, which carry out various activities, including welding, painting, and assembly of electronic parts. Additionally, robot manipulators can be applied in tasks where human life may be at risk or in processes that require a very high production rate. Unmanned aerial vehicles are another type of robotic system, being used in civilian and military applications, such as forest fire detection, oil pipeline inspection, high-voltage line failure detection, and surveillance. This Special Issue is addressed to all types of robotic systems that use robust analysis or design to improve performance.

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.
