Multi-robot systems involve groups of intelligent robots that perceive and act in an environment to accomplish tasks collectively in a centralized or decentralized manner. With improved efficiency and the elimination of a single point of failure, multiple robots outperform single robots in domains that require greater capability and knowledge. Some real-world multi-robot systems can be found in multi-robot surveillance, planetary exploration, search and rescue missions, service robots in smart homes and offices, warehouse management, and transportation. This special issue aims to promote multi-robot systems research and solicits articles that report the current research in multi-robot systems. Articles should explain how the work addresses challenges in multi-robot systems and present opportunities for novel applications. We especially welcome work that exploits synergies between intelligent robotics and multiagent systems, bringing together expertise from both fields.

This special issue focuses on the state-of-the-art research in all aspects of multi-robot systems. While work based on real robots is preferable, we also accept work based on simulation only. However, the perspective of intelligence is necessary; articles focusing purely on control or mechanical engineering perspectives are not a good fit for this special issue.

The topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

Ad hoc teamwork
Coordination and cooperation in multi-robot systems
Cloud robotics
Distributed cooperative perception
Distributed control and planning
Distributed decision making
Human-robot interaction, communication, and teamwork
Machine learning in multi-robot systems
Mapping, localization, and navigation in multi-robot systems
Modular robots - locomotion and reconfiguration
Multi-robot planning (including action selection, motion and path planning, and manipulation)
Multi-robot self-organization
Multi-vehicle coordination and interaction
Performance metrics for robot teams
Robot soccer
Robotic vision in multi-robot systems
Robotic surveillance and security
Real-world applications of multi-robot systems (including field robotics and personal/service robots)
Security and privacy in multi-robot systems
Sensor and actuator networks in multi-robot systems
Swarm robotics
Task planning for multiple robots and multi-robot task allocation
Theoretical foundations of multi-robot systems
Submission Guidelines
Submissions should be up to 5,400 words (counting a standard figure or table as 200 words) and should follow IEEE Intelligent Systems style and presentation guidelines (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.computer.org_intelligent_author&d=DQIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=TytjM4MVNwcJdKXP0jgSQ9JzoOi_rEaKJKtX146ISug&s=LnIZMpmfl5Nw3RGn5ZN6V3sD4ONAAJDuOlnQ6cmrAtk&e=  <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.computer.org_intelligent_author&d=DQMFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=1CPw9LuR752-nzLFfiooQsGFpLTuBipkA1V5DcQGTaA&s=18Y4vxGy-goz_pvFcXiSv2DCapQ4Hn5Giw0xo3dslPQ&e=>). All submissions will be peer-reviewed following standard journal practices. The manuscripts cannot have been published or be currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

We strongly encourage submissions that include audio, video, and community content, which will be featured on the IEEE Computer Society website along with the accepted papers.
