Call for  Papers:
Frontiers in Robotics and AI

Research Topic:
“Internet of Robotic Things”

The Internet-of-Robotic-Things (IoRT) is an emerging paradigm that brings together autonomous robotic systems with the Internet of Things (IoT)
vision of connected sensors and smart objects pervasively embedded in everyday environments.
This merger can enable novel applications in almost every sector where cooperation between robots and IoT technology can be imagined:
From assisted living, to precision farming, to manufacturing and logistic, to cleaning, to waste collection and recycling, to mapping,
inspection, repair and maintenance of infrastructures.

In order to unlock the potential of IoRT solutions, a number of fundamental technological and scientific challenges must be
tackled to address the complexity, deep conflicts and also the security, safety and privacy concerns brought about by multiple heterogeneous things sensing,
taking autonomous decisions, and moving and acting within the same dynamic environment.

With this Research Topic, we call for papers that will help in understanding the added value and what key enablers are involved in combining advancements from robotic and autonomous systems with IoT technology.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Architectures and platforms for IoRT systems
• AI, planning and control algorithms for IoRT systems
• Machine Learning and Big Data for IoRT systems
• Cyber-physical security for IoRT systems
• Privacy protection in IoRT applications
• Ontologies, semantic interoperability and semantic reasoning for IoRT systems
• Automated verification and validation of IoRT systems
• Human interaction with IoRT systems
• IoRT applications such as healthcare, Industry 4.0, transportation, logistic
