Robots use a large number of sensors to achieve good operation and control in automation production processes. With the drive toward “Industry 4.0,” the use of robotics and automation has become commonplace as they allow increased efficiency and precision. Therefore, the development of new sensors and measurement systems for robotics and automation requires new solutions that enable accurate, safe, and cost-effective operation.
This Special Issue seeks to showcase reviews or rigorous original papers focused on remote sensing via UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles); tactile sensing and sound sensors for robots; state of the art in automated tactile sensing; target tracking, including multiple targets with multiple sensors; visual sensing in robotics and automation; applications of robot sensing; multi-sensing automated systems; all new solutions of sensing systems for robotics and automation control of robotics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Inertial navigation systems
