Special Issue on Assistive Robotics

Third Call for Papers

Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics

(ISSN: 2080-9778 print version, ISSN: 2081-4836 electronic version, http://www.versita.com/pjbr)



Assistive robotics aims to bring advanced robotic technologies to the arena of independent living by supporting those with physical/cognitive as well as chronic/degenerative disabilities. Assistive robotic devices range from mobility robotic aids to social assistive robotics, as well as encompass recent trends where robotic technologies are integrated with sensor networks and ambient intelligence. Within assistive robotics, the role of the user is paramount and therefore evaluations done in-situ with real user feedback are crucial to understanding factors such as acceptance, utility, safety, etc. The result is that assistive robotics is a multidisciplinary field addressing the latest in sensing, actuation, cognition and psychology and more.

Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics invites manuscripts for the Special Issue on Assistive Robotics. We encourage authors to discuss recent progress and directions for future research by submitting publication in following topics (the scope of this topical issue includes, but is not limited to):



- robotic aids for mobility;

- socially assistive robotics;

- partner robots for rehabilitation and development;

- social robotic telepresence for elderly and disabled people;

- robotics in smart environments for ambient assisted living;

- human-robot interaction;

- evaluation methodologies for assistive robotics.



Multidisciplinary submission concerning theoretical and practical aspects of assistive robotics as well as social and medical impacts of such devices and technologies are invited.
