Recently, many big efforts have been devoted to the implementation of
the real robots and experiments in the various environments in Robot
Competition as Robocup and/or the Real World Robot Challenge as DARPA
Grand Challenge and Tsukuba Challenge, etc.  In these competition and
challenges, it is required to realize a practical robot system which
work in the given surroundings or real environments to perform the
defined task.  For this purpose, the robot should acquire the
environment information via its own various sensors and process them to
understand the surroundings situation. The processed results may be used
to help the remote operators or to decide robot’s autonomous motion. 
In these sensor and environment recognition technology for the real
robot systems, the reliability and robustness are extremely important. 
And the accumulation of the practical experiences and knowledge on the
many concrete experiments of the use of real sensor systems are
necessary to realize the good robot systems.

This special issue will collect the practical experiences on the sensor
and there processing technology in Robot Competitions and Challenges. 
The experimental results with the analysis of the conventional methods
in the applications to the Competition and Challenges are encouraged to
submit, as well as the proposals of the novel sensor information
processing methodologies with experimental results.  The editors believe
that, this collection of practical experiences will be useful for the
design of future robot systems to be applied to the various real

Submission:  PDF format file of the complete manuscript should be sent by June 30, 2011 to the office of Advanced Robotics, the Robotics Society of Japan through our homepage (http://www.rsj.or.jp/AR/index_e.html).
