*** Introduction ***

In the last decade, the marked progress in marine technologies and
robotics has led to massive improvements of a new and very active area
of applied research: Marine Robotics. The state of the art and some
achievements in this area are particularly new. This special issue,
organized by the Marine Robotics Technical Committee of the IEEE
Robotics and Automation Society
(http://webuser.unicas.it/MarineRoboticsTC), is intended to address
recent advances, related works and future research directions.


*** Scope, description and more information ***

Recent advances in sensors, computers, communications, and information
systems have provided a solid background for a rapid development of
sophisticated technologies in Marine Robotics, yielding to new
advanced underwater operations to be carried on. At this stage of
development, we are starting to see innovative researches, ranging
from installations of underwater data networks to vehicles for
autonomous manipulation, to replace many underwater intervention tasks
that are today still performed using manned submersibles or Remotely
Operated Vehicles in teleoperation mode. Papers of this special issue
will be focused on the following main topics:

- AUV for underwater intervention, with particular attention to
solution and application examples of autonomous underwater
manipulation systems.
- Remotely operated vehicle for underwater intervention: state of the
art and solutions for associated robotic manipulation system
- Underwater target localization and tracking for manipulation, rescue, defense
- Localization techniques for AUV vehicles, Mapping, Sensor Data Processing
- Advances in underwater data networking systems for underwater
vehicles data communication

Papers should not exceed the maximum length of 8 final typeset pages.
