Recent advances in computer vision are increasingly being applied to robots to augment, and even to replace other robot sensors such as odometry, laser rangefinders and GPS. Unlike active rangefinders, computer vision is low-cost, small in size and passive, and unlike GPS it can operate in environments such as indoors, underground, underwater and space.

Following on from the phenomenal success of the previous Special Issues on Vision & Robotics (2007, 2010 and 2012) IJRR announces a new Special Issue on Robot Vision.  Original submissions are sought to present recent advances in vision theory and methods and its application to robotics including:

 * Visual odometry
 * Visual navigation
 * Visual manipulation, including object recognition and pose estimation
 * Integration or fusion of vision with other sensing modalities
 * Visual SLAM, semantic SLAM
 * Visual place recognition
 * Vision-based control
 * Visual tracking
 * Robust vision techniques
 * Novel visual sensors (RGB-D, HDR, wide field of view cameras, etc.)
 * Interaction/fusion with other sensors (force, tactile, etc.)
 * Novel computational algorithms and architectures
 * Metrics for performance and robustness of vision systems
 * Robot vision applications (space robotics, underwater robotics, manufacturing, manipulation, etc.)

Experimental results are particularly encouraged. Please note that the Journal has no page limit on papers and is a leader in archival publishing of data sets, code and videos with papers.  For full guidelines see:
