Dear all,

My co-editor Robert Riener and I are proud to announce a special issue of Sensors on the topic of sensor fusion in assistive and rehabilitation robotics. Sensors is a well-established open-access journal (IF = 2.475) that regularly publishes high-quality papers on all topics of sensing, and its editorial board has expressed strong support for this special issue.

Guest edited by Domen Novak (University of Wyoming, USA) and Robert Riener (ETH Zurich), the special issue aims to showcase advanced sensor fusion algorithms for assistive and rehabilitation robotics, ideally with end-user evaluations that demonstrate how these algorithms perform in realistic operating conditions. These advances in sensor fusion will lead to a new generation of intelligent, collaborative robots that enhance users’ quality of life by either replacing lost sensory–motor functions or helping regain these lost functions. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Intention detection and gesture/gait recognition for intelligent orthoses and prostheses
- Localization and mapping for robotic wheelchairs and other mobile assistive robots
- Shared control algorithms for assistive and rehabilitation robots
- Affective computing (stress and workload recognition) for assistive and rehabilitation robots
- Brain–computer interfaces for assistive and rehabilitation robots
- Error augmentation and resistance training in rehabilitation robotics
- Telerehabilitation and robot-aided telemonitoring
- Human factor analyses of existing intelligent robots

The deadline for submission is June 15, 2019. While the journal has an open-access publication fee, discounts will be given for submissions to the special issue. More detailed information can be found on the Sensors website:

If you have any questions about the special issue, please do not hesitate to contact me!
