Scope: Control technology is one of the fundamental disciplines of robotics. The technology has been developed for more than 100 years and expanded in many research areas. In particular, control technology for networked and distributed robotics has been recently emerging thanks to the development of embedded systems and wireless communications. An example of networked and distributed robotics is a drone light show, which was presented in the opening ceremony of Tokyo Olympic Games 2020, where multiple drones are operated from the main computer located on the ground that controls multiple drones through wireless networks. The purpose of this special issue is to present recent theory and practice of control technology that can be effectively applied to networked and distributed robotics. It aims at collecting a representative body of innovative theoretical contributions that have potential applications to networked and distributed robotics as well as applicative robotics researches that show successful implementation of recent theory of networked and distributed control. Prospective contributed papers are invited to cover, but are not limited to, theoretical and applicative researches on the following topics

  • control of multi-agent systems (e.g. consensus control, coverage control, formation)
  • networked control systems
  • discrete-event systems and hybrid systems
  • resource-aware control (e.g. event-triggered control, sparse control)
  • secure and resilient control
  • machine learning and data driven methods for networked robotics
  • human-in-the-loop and human-machine interaction
