= = Introduction = =

Service robotics is becoming an active research area of robotics in the 21st
century. Service robots, such as iRobot, HAL, CareBot, aim at assisting
human in professional and domestic environments. Novel service robots are
high-tech products resulted by synthesizing the most innovative research
outcomes of mechanical design, dynamics, sensing, perception, and cognition
science, and control engineering. The complexity of system integration
requires fundamental and advance knowledge of mathematics for system
modeling and representation. 


= = Focus = =

This special issue is focused on all aspects of fundamental and advance
mathematics including, but not limited to, ordinary and partial differential
equations, stochastic processes, differential geometry, and nonlinear
analysis that are employed for modeling and development of service robots.
Our aim is to collect the latest research results not only reporting
concepts, designs, developments, tools and systems in the field of service
robots, but also discussing on the current states of the art, challenges and
solutions that meet the increasing demands of service robots in modern human
societies.


= = Topics = =

The robotic topics to be covered include, but not limited to:

-	Cognitive sensing and perception
-	Vision based SLAM
-	Human-robot interaction/cooperation 
-	Advanced control of service robots
-	Biologically inspired service robots
-	Humanoid service robots
-	Sensing and actuating for service robots
-	Modeling and simulation tools for service robots
-	Biomechanics, physical and cognitive HRI 
-	Kinematics, dynamics, and design optimization of service robots
-	Autonomous operation in an environment with uncertain conditions
-	Stability and robustness for service robot control
