In recent years, the evolution of small-scaled unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) has been remarkable. Not only advanced research and development but also its industrial application has progressed rapidly. As the hobbyist market for drones, which opened around 2010, has become somewhat saturated, attention is now turning to commercial applications, not only in agriculture but also for new uses, such as for aerial surveys, infrastructure inspections, security, disaster surveys, and logistics. As a result, related start-up companies dealing in drone manufacture, service solutions, human resources development, etc. are popping up all over the world.
Therefore, this call for papers will be for a special issue with the following title: Cutting Edge of Drone Research and Development, and its Application. Specifically, we are calling for papers on the following topics.
1.  Drone Design
2.  Drone Sensors and Sensing Strategies
3.  Drone Propulsion
4.  Drone Control
5.  Drone Communication
6.  Drone Architecture
7.  Drone Health and Fault Management

Focus:
Several missions are planned to explore the moon, Mars, asteroids, and comets, and a lot of researchers are studying and developing lunar or planetary rovers for future surface exploration. Even more international cooperative missions are under discussion targeting human lunar exploration. Space robotics is expected to support external vehicular activities (EVA) and internal vehicular activities (IVA) for future space utilization. Future space projects will require robotics technology to repair, and maintain orbiting satellites or to construct large structures in space. A key technology in those missions is space robotics including Al and automation.
We are inviting you, our readers, to submit papers on advanced space robotics, AI, and robotics and automation in space, including the following:
– Artificial intelligence in space: autonomous locations, navigation and map-building, SLAM technology, fault detection, isolation and recovery methods, image processing, object identification and feature detection, task planning, and scheduling, etc.
– Robotics in space: mechanical design of planetary rovers, space manipulators, actuators, and sensors for space robots, end-effectors and tools, reconfigurable robots and robot mobility, etc.
– Automation in space: simulation technology, test methods, remote operations, human-machine interaction, interaction with the space environment, and data mining and analysis, etc.
