The Special Issue "Online Motion Planning and Model Predictive Control" of the journal Advanced Robotics is open for submission!

The SI is organized by Yuichi Tazaki, Kobe University; Kensuke Harada, Osaka University; Masaki Murooka, CNRS-AIST JRL, IRL; Adrien Escande, CNRS-AIST JRL, IRL.

The topics of the SI include: 

  • Motion planning and trajectory generation of various types of robots (e.g., humanoids, mobile robots)
  • Motion planning for robotic manipulation and assembly, multi-contact motion planning
  • Linear, nonlinear, and stochastic model predictive control
  • Optimization algorithms for motion planning and model predictive control
  • Integration of motion planning with perception and control, failure detection and replanning

Submission deadline: May 31st, 2022
