Special Issue on: "Advances in Robotics and Biomechatronics"

Editor: Tugrul Özel, Rutgers University, USA

Biomechatronics is an applied interdisciplinary field encompassing biology, neurosciences, mechanics, mechanical elements, electronics and robotics. This special issue will cover state-of-the-art technologies that enable sensory and motor interaction between biological-human and artificial-mechatronic systems. It invites the submission of high quality research articles related to advances in robotics and biomechatronics systems.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Biologically inspired robotics and mechatronics designs
  • Biomaterials and materials processing for biomechatronics
  • Assistive and rehabilitating mechatronics devices for humans
  • Wearable robotics and sensors
  • Bipedal walking robots
  • Muscle-based actuators for robotic and prosthetic applications
  • Hybrid mechatronics devices containing both living tissue and synthetic components

Notes for Prospective Authors

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was not originally copyrighted and if it has been completely re-written).

All papers are refereed through a peer review process. A guide for authors, sample copies and other relevant information for submitting papers are available on the Author Guidelines page
