Due to the recent advancements on industrial robot technologies, industrial

robots have been introduced to difficult process of product manufacturing

such as product assembly, parts supply, and product inspection. This

special issue attempts to showcase state-of-the-art studies on industrial

robot technology. Emphasis will be given to ``novel algorithms and

theories" and ``novel techniques on application and system integration". We

solicit original and high-quality papers on industrial robot technologies.

We also solicit survey papers that discuss open challenges and

state-of-the-art techniques. Topics of interest include, but are not

limited to:

Motion Planning

Motion Optimization


Force and Tactile Sensing

Visual Sensing

Motion Control

Sensor Fusion

Production Engineering

Data Engineering AI Technologies

Mechanical Design

Human-Robot Interaction


System Integration
