Call for Papers
As multiagent robotics research matures,
heterogeneous systems are emerging as effective solutions
to many multi-robot tasks. Heterogeneity may be evident as
physical difference between agents or as behavioral
difference when robots serve diverse roles in a cooperating team.
This special issue of Autonomous Robots will focus on implemented
heterogeneous multi-robot systems.
We are soliciting articles describing
mature research demonstrated on physical systems or
theoretical work with clear and direct application to robots.
Potential topics include:
- heterogeneous multi-robot systems applied to
agricultural, rescue or exploration tasks;
- heterogeneity in learning multi-robot systems;
- heterogeneous cooperative dexterous manipulators;
- heterogeneous cooperative sensing;
- coordination of multiple heterogeneous robots;
- heterogeneous strategies for multi-robot communication;
- heterogeneous multi-robot systems in adversarial domains;
Whenever possible, articles should quantify the impact
of heterogeneity and/or establish its importance in a
domain or application.
Please contact the editors if you have a question regarding
a potential paper topic.
