About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to offer a special forum for different research fields of mechanical engineering, control theory, robot control, artificial intelligence, and applied mathematics to present the most recent investigations and developments on kinematically redundant robots. Nowadays, many research scopes of kinematically redundant robots are still open such as acceleration and stability of numerical modeling approaches, optimization of redundant manipulators motion, trajectory and path planning of multilink mechanisms, decreasing of algorithm computing time for the real-time applications and many more. The goal of this Research Topic is to support this scientific area with quality and the latest knowledge.
We seek research papers with theoretical contributions focusing on the design, analysis, modeling, and simulations including valuable results of experiments on kinematically redundant robots. Also review papers that provide a comprehensive view of the fields of this Research Topic are welcome.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
• Mathematical modeling of kinematically redundant robots
• Advanced control systems and algorithms
• Motion planning and optimization for redundant robots
• Learning algorithms and neural networks for motion planning
• Modeling and control of motion with constraints
• Algorithms focused on real-time control
Keywords: continuum robot, control algorithm, mathematical modeling, motion planning, redundant manipulator, soft robot
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
