To submit a paper, please refer to ROBOT'15 conference website:



Selected contributions from Environmental robotics will be invited to
extend their publications and to be considered for publication in a special
issue from Sensors (IF: 2.245): "Robotic Sensory Systems for Environment
Protection and Conservation" (
http://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors/special_issues/RSSEPC). The selected
contributions are subject to another reviewing process carried by Sensors.



Environment awareness and conservation is an epoch-making subject in our
society. Many scientific fields have contributed to size and address this
concern. In the last 20 years many specific environmental missions
pollution monitoring, soils conservation, natural disasters research,
nuclear and radiation accidents using air, ground and underwater robots
have been reported. This robots have been shipped with different sensory
systems able to sense and gather biophysical data from broad areas for
further analysis and study. This special session dedicated to environmental
robotics will present late and future research within this field. Topics
include, but are not limited to:

- Air, ground and underwater robotic systems, or other robotic
- Sensors and payload architectures.
- Robotic systems design choices and motivation.
- Design of testbed and experimental setups.
- Multi-robot systems, heterogeneous fleets of robots, site specific
collaborative behaviors.
- Control and navigation.
- Task planning, path planning and optimization approaches.
- Adaptive sampling.
- Open-source software.
- Experiments addressing long-term autonomy.
- Open-issues and challenges.
- Applications and case studies are very welcome!
