Smart Robotics for Manufacturing



Currently, we are in the middle of the fourth industrial revolution where emerging information and communication technology such as smart sensors, Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, cyber-physical systems have been shaping many fields, including manufacturing. In this context, smart manufacturing as a means to satisfy increasing individualized requirements and enhance the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry has been the common goal to achieve for many countries.



Rapid developments in technology allows product customization, which spawn increasingly individualized requirements. In this circumstances, customization and flexibility become essential requirements for manufacturing. Industrial robots, which can accomplish a wide range of tasks such as assembly and welding, are key equipment to realize smart manufacturing. Industrial manufacturing has been relying on robots for decades. Especially, with the help of emerging artificial intelligence technology such as deep learning, deep reinforcement learning, and transfer learning robots are endowed with learning and mimetic abilities. At the same time, using actuators, sensors, vision systems, and advanced software, robots can collect and analyze data from their environment and act on the environment in real time. An AI-enabled robots that can learn from its environment and experience and build on its capabilities based on that knowledge can be regarded as a smart robot. With strong learning and perceptive abilities, smart robots can play a key role in meeting the new requirements for the manufacturing industry. Smart robots can not only work on highly repetitive tasks but also learn new methods, knowledge, and skills from their experience, collaborate with human workers, and even make critical decisions by themselves. In this context, there is a need for setting up a special issue on smart robotics for manufacturing to reflect the latest advances in theory, technologies, and applications.



Scope of the Special Issue



The purpose of this Special Issue (SI) of the Robotics and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing is to provide a forum for publishing original and high-quality research articles on smart robotics and related enabling technologies for manufacturing applications such as machining, assembly, and welding so as to advance academic research, technology development, and industrial applications of smart robots for manufacturing purposes. Focusing on the theme of smart robotics for manufacturing, topics of interest of this SI include, but are not limited to,
