Autonomous mobility, as exemplified by self-driving cars, autonomous mobile robots, drones, etc., is essential to the acceleration and practical application of transportation services and the automation of delivery, guidance, security, and inspection. Therefore, in recent years, expectations have been building for autonomous mobility to grow as a technology that not only improves the convenience and comfort of transportation and the efficiency of logistics but also leads to solutions to various social problems. Various technological elements are required to ensure the safety and quality of autonomous mobility for safe use. For example, technology is needed to create environmental maps and automatically determine obstacles, based on data acquired by cameras and sensors such as LiDAR. Technologies for planning appropriate routes and controlling robots safely and comfortably are also essential. In this special issue, we call for research papers on the “recognition,” “decision and planning,” and “control” of autonomous mobility in use. We welcome papers on, but not limited to, the following topics: mobile robots, self-driving cars, drones, personal mobility, SLAM, odometry, state estimation, path tracking control, obstacle avoidance, active cruise control, assist control, and attitude control.
