Soft/Social/Systemic (3S) Robot Technologies for Enhancing Quality of New Normal (QoNN)

We are currently facing to adapt to the new normal for acting against COVID19 pandemic. Soft/Social/Systemic (3S) Robot Technologies have great potentials for enhancing Quality of New Normal (QoNN). In this special issue, we propose our positive actions in robotics against the current pandemic by collecting short/proposal papers on 3S Robot Technologies for enhancing QoNN.

We will receive only submissions in short paper format for publishing these research results and proposals in a timely manner. Submitted papers will be specially evaluated from the viewpoint of applicability for better QoNN.


Soft Robotics, Haptics, Social Robots, Communication Robots, Wearable Technologies, Automation, Control of Multi-agent Systems, Cyber Physical Human Systems, Robotics over Networks, Machine Learning and Optimization for Robotics, Estimation and Control of Pandemics, Wireless Communications for Robotics, Telerobotics, Virtual Reality, Multi-agent Simulation, Digital Twin, and all topics shown in "Field of Interest" of Advanced Robotics.
