Call for Papers
Special Issue of Robotics on "Robot Vision"
Final deadline for Submission 28 February 2014

Vision is one of the major senses that enables humans to act and 
interact in changing environments. In a similar vein, computer vision 
should play an equally important role in relation to intelligent 
robotics. Vision and image understanding techniques are now applied in a 
range of robotics applications either as an alternative or a supplement 
to other sensing modalities. There have been significant recent advances 
in robust visual inference for mobility and manipulation among other 
tasks. This special issue welcomes submissions in both advances in the 
theory of vision with relevance to robotics and applications of computer 
vision in robotics. We particularly encourage papers with thorough 
experimental evaluation.

Topics of interest include

     new visual sensors
     hardware implementations of visual processing algorithms
     novel algorithms and architectures for vision
     real-time visual processing
     integration of vision and haptics
     integration of vision and other modalities
     recovery of 3D object shape
     object recognition and categorisation
     perception of objects with transparent and specular surfaces
     vision for articulated and deformable objects
     vision for manipulation
     visual servoing
     active vision
     visual tracking and vision in multi-modal tracking
     visual navigation
     vision in unstructured environments
     visual place recognition and categorization
     visual recovery of scene structure
     visual slam
     vision for robot human interaction
     biologically motivated vision approaches applied to robot systems
     evaluation metrics for vision systems
     applications of robot vision

Submission Rules

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be 
under consideration for publication elsewhere (N.B. Conference papers 
may only be submitted if the paper was not originally copyrighted and if 
it has been extended substantially and completely re-written). All 
manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for 
authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is 
available on the Instructions for Authors page. Robotics is an 
international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by 
MDPI. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a
