SPECIAL ISSUE ON CO-OPERATIVE ROBOTS, MACHINES AND SYSTEMS


FOCUS

This special issue, being focused on a broad spectrum of co-operative
systems - regardless of whether they are embodied as co-operative  
machines,
cooperative robots, co-operative unmanned vehicles, co-operative  
software
agents, co-operative computer games or just co-operative embedded  
systems -
seeks submissions from scientists and researchers affiliated with both
academic and industrial research institutes, as well as government
institutions, on topics related (but not limited) to Co-operative Real- 
Time
Decision Making & Control Models, Algorithms and Techniques

for:
- Co-operative Robots
- Co-operative Embedded Systems
- Co-operative Unmanned Vehicles (terrain and urban road vehicles,
underwater and air vehicles)
- Co-operative Machines
- Co-operative Software Agents
- Co-operative Computer Games
- Co-operative Systems

Related to these topics are also
- Co-operative System Architectures
- Co-operative Communication Protocols and
- Real-time Data Exchange techniques between on-board sensors and on- 
board
processing units, as well as between robots, machines and systems
themselves.

Submissions addressing practical applications and in-field experimental
testing are strongly encouraged.
