Dear colleagues,

We are inviting you to contribute to the special issue on "Tactile and Force Sensors in Robotics" at MDPI Sensors journal (IF 3.275).

Deadline: 30 June 2021.
See this link
for the detail.

The aim of this special issue is as follows:
With the development of image recognition technology, the accuracy of recognizing an object or environment with an external sensor such as a camera has been greatly improved. However, the recognition accuracy is not sufficient for operations that require higher accuracy, such as assembly. In addition, it is difficult to recognize areas that cannot be captured by a visual sensor due to occlusion. In such a case, tactile or force sensors are needed. In view of the rapid improvement in the accuracy of image recognition by using machine learning, many new types of force?tactile sensors have been developed in recent years. For example, there have been attempts to obtain rich data by obtaining force and tactile information through images, because it is now possible to process large amounts of data.
Recognition technology that uses large amounts of obtained force and haptic data is also attracting attention. The combination of image data and force/tactile information can be utilized to improve recognition accuracy. A new force control method or schema using a large amount of force and tactile data would be important in improving robot manipulation. With recent progress in robotic force and tactile sensors, this Special Issue focuses on new trends as well as the current state of the art in force and tactile sensors in robotics. Topics of interest include:

*New designs;
*New mechanisms;
*Vision-based force/tactile sensors;
*Integration of multiple sensors;
*Motion planning based on sensory data;
*Grasp planning;
*Strategy for robotic operations or manipulation.

Related to tactile and force sensors are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 papers will be 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.
