The advances in low-cost robotic devices, sensor technology, computational methods and intelligent software algorithms and agents create ever-more effective solutions to automation problems in a variety of manufacturing industries. The trend in product miniaturisation poses specific problems for microparts assembly. The premise of automated manufacturing systems is that with the better utilisation of sensors, system models, control algorithms and computational methods offer substantial improvements to the production cost and operational quality.

This special issue invites the submission of high quality research articles related to robotics, mechatronics, and software-based intelligent approaches for automation of manufacturing, materials handling and distribution systems.
