The main objective of this article collection consists in gathering
together the Control engineering and science and Marine Robotics
communities, allowing a productive exchange among people with different

In particular, the aim is to let experts in advanced automatic control
techniques and theory, more specifically focused on theoretical
developments in the field, to present the recent advancements and new
trends within their community; at the same time, experts in marine robotics
can present their current work and achievements, highlighting the currently
unsolved problems and challenges in the advanced guidance navigation and
control of the single marine platforms, as well as the challenges
concerning the control of teams of heterogeneous robots.
