Special Issue on "Advances in Robotics in Latin America"

This special issue focuses on recent developments being carried out in  
the field of robotics and autonomous systems in Latin America. The  
main goal is to have contributions from top scientists and research  
groups in the different countries in the region, working in this  
field. The special issue topics are related to all the aspects of  
robotics, such as:
- robot architectures,

- robot algorithms and methodologies,

- humanoid robotics,

- autonomous/unmanned vehicles,

- service and entertainment robotics,

- field and rescue robotics,

- micro/nano robotics,

- industrial robotic systems,

- biologically inspired robotics and swarms.

Submissions describing real applications of intelligent and robotic  
systems (mechatronics, manufacturing systems, biomedical systems,  
natural resources industry, underwater, humanoid, mobile/legged robot  
and space applications, etc.) with real impact in the region are most  
welcomed. In addition, submissions addressing practical applications  
using international benchmarks and/or in-field experimental testing  
are strongly encouraged.
