Introduction to the Special Issue "Robotica 2016" uri icon


  • Autonomous robotics has seen its popularity and application in distinct fields, namely in services and industry, increase significantly in the last two decades. Several areas related with robotics have been addressed by the academic community and thus journals and conferences emerged to broadly disseminate the developed knowledge. The IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions (ICARSC) gathers participants from academia and industry, working in the field of autonomous robot systems and related areas. It is organized since 2001 in parallel to the Portuguese Robotics Open, and aims at exploring and discussing the latest trends in research and technology in the fields of robotics and related areas. The authors of the best papers presented at ICARSC 2016 were invited to submit extended and improved versions of their manuscripts to this “Robotica 2016” special issue.
