Industrial Robots


The objective of this special issue is to present advances and emerging cross-disciplinary approaches in the field of robots and mechatronics. We aim to provide a forum for researchers across disciplines as well as for practicing engineers in various fields within robots and mechatronics as proposed below.

The editors would like to encourage studies that outline the general development of the main disciplines of robots and mechatronics as we know them today. Articles discussing methodologies and reviews of the current state of knowledge and opportunities for future research are welcome. In particular, this issue intends to provide a forum for a productive exchange of ideas and interaction among diverse technical and scientific fields such as structural, mechanical, dynamics as well as applied mathematics, statistics and computer science. The Special Issue Industrial Robots is aiming to focus on increasing efficiency in industrial robots and mechanical mobile systems, Drone, Actuators, Autonomous ships; Robot Arms, Dynamics, and Control, Robotics.

This issue will publish high-quality reviews and research articles. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and methodological details, as applicable, must be provided, and the special issue will be supported by American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences ( All submissions must adhere to the AJEAS journal's format requirements.

AJEAS is an open-access peer-reviewed technical journal which publishes original research contributions and is an unparalleled resource for key advances in the field of engineering.
