The special issue, “Machine Learning for Robotics and Swarm Systems,” is focused on machine learning techniques and its application to the field of robotics including swarm systems. Swarm systems were born in a field of robotics as a kind of distributed autonomous robotic systems with the concept of the emergent methodology for extremely redundant systems. They typically consist of homogeneous autonomous robots, similar to living animals that build swarms. Recently, machine learning, such as deep learning, has been more remarkable for controlling the behaviors of these robots in real world. The topics included in this special issue are not only recent advances of machine learning techniques and its applications in the field of robotics and swarm systems, but also the controlling mechanism for multi-robots, such as evolutionary computation or other soft computing methods. Proposals involving new ideas or methods in this field are also welcome.

To realize intelligent mobile robots, self-localization, map generation, and autonomous exploration of unknown environments are necessary. Probabilistic processing can be applied to overcome the problems of uncertainties in movement and measurement errors. Probabilistic robotics and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technologies are thus strongly related, and have been the focus of several extant studies. Owing to the increasing practical applications such as automatic driving and cleaning robots, the applicability of these techniques is increasing. To facilitate innovation, various papers pertaining to these topics are called for, including those on the development of practical technologies.

Control engineering and instrumentation engineering have significantly contributed to the improvement of industrial productivity, saving of resources and energy, and enrichment of our lives. They have become important cross-cutting study fields not only covering engineering but also having strong relations with the environment, society, and economy. Therefore, various studies have been conducted on the educational methods of related technologies at educational institutes and companies. With this background, we planned this special issue with the latest studies on the instruction and evaluation methods for education on control engineering, instrumentation engineering, and control technologies, expecting its contribution to further development in the future.

Robots consist of many elements, such as actuators, sensors, computers, and mechanical components. Nowadays, progress of AI field induced by the tremendous improvements in computer processing capabilities, has been allowing robots to behave in more sophisticated manner, and this has drawn considerable attention. On the other hand, “the mechanism,” which directly produces robot movements, sometimes brings out abilities that cannot be provided solely by computer control through sensor feedback. “Integrated Knowledge on Innovative Robot Mechanisms” is a knowledge system for robot mechanisms that bring forth useful and innovative functions and values. In this special issue, papers related to robot mechanisms that will widely contribute to robotics development are welcome to be submitted.
