This section addresses control aspects of robotic systems. "Robots" and "Control", both interpreted in a wide sense, are fundamental actors of multiple aspects of our life, and the applications of robotic control systems are wide.Read More
“Automatic Control”, a wide scientific field and the core instrument of automation, is about making systems behave according to user requirements, automatically. Robotic systems is a kind of physical systems where automated motion is inherent to their existence. Thus, “Robotic Control” is the field addressing the issues spanning from decision making to motion implementation of robotic systems.
Traditionally, “Robotic Task Planning”, the field of addressing decision making on higher level issues of motion, is considered as a relevant field. Task planning is meant to consider longer time aspects and include several operational constraints while robotic control is of a more real-time, local and reactive nature. The vast literature and tools available from those fields indicate that their borders are neither clear, nor static.
This section welcomes content on the systematic design and implementation of algorithms that pertain to the motion control problem within Robotics. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of decision making and motion control on advanced robotics, this section welcomes contributions based on the fundamental fields of: control theory, computer science, mathematics, cognitive and bio-inspired disciplines etc. Any domain of implementation is acceptable: ground and underground, marine (surface and underwater) and aerial (including space). Furthermore, any application domain is encouraged: industrial, service, medical, entertainment, safety & security (e.g. monitoring, surveillance), search & rescue, agricultural, transportation etc."

Robotic Control Systems welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Robotic Control Systems, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Robotic Control Systems will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Robotics and AI.
