Cognitive and Neural Aspects in Robotics with Applications

Description

Robotics has been widely applied for various fields such as automation and other control and engineering systems. On the other hand, recent developments of humanoid and human-like robots are a milestone in the field of robotics and they can be a platform for breaking new ground of robotics applications for human-friendly medical and welfare systems. Cognitive and learning aspects for such robots are, however, still underdeveloped compared to highly controlled mechanism of the recent robotic systems.

The main focus of this special issue will be on the cognitive aspects of robotics, especially on the neural and fuzzy basis of the human intelligence and on the fundamental model of the human cognitive and motor functions from the brain sciences point of view.

We invite authors to present original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts in developing more intelligent robotic systems. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Cognitive aspects of robotics
  • Neural and fuzzy basis for robotic intelligence
  • Human robot interactions
  • Robotics for assisting physical and mental disability

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jr/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
