Aims and scope
Autonomous robots must be able to perform in the world. Hence, publication preference will be given to papers which include performance data on actual robots in the real world. Papers which include only simulation results will be considered for publication, but with a lower priority. Such papers should also include a section entitled `The path to implementation', where the transition from simulation to real world is discussed.
Papers published in these pages will report on original research in such areas as:
Control of autonomous robots
Autonomous wheeled and tracked vehicles
Computational architectures for autonomous systems
Distributed architectures for learning, control and adaptation
Studies of autonomous robot systems
Theory of autonomous systems
Terrain mapping and recognition
Self-calibration and self-repair for robots
Self-reproducing intelligent structures
Genetic algorithms as models for robot development.
