Industrial Robot's unique approach to themed issues with invited guest specialists contributing a valuable viewpoint ensures that topical and cutting edge issues can be explored. Because of this focus, you can build a broad understanding of the most interesting and strategically important international activities taking place in the field, enabling you to stay at the very forefront of industry developments.
In addition to the themed issues, Industrial Robot also publishes articles and features designed to be of a practical nature, as well as a substantial section reserved for research articles. The research articles are selected to reflect the most interesting and strategically important research and development activities from around the world, ensuring that research articles remain accessible to all readers regardless of their particular area of expertise. All articles undergo rigorous double-blind peer review.
Robotics has come a long way in the last 20 years, from its beginning in highly structured environments, where native intelligence on the part of the robot was not required. Today, once prohibitive costs in developing on-board intelligence are plummeting, and robots are now gearing up to play a major role in less structured and more flexible manufacturing environments. This journal keeps industry practitioners and academics up to date with new international developments in the field, making it essential reading for anyone wanting to introduce robots or widen their use within their organization.
Managers and engineers responsible for the design, development and application of robots will gain valuable, practical insights into current developments, which can be applied immediately to their own robotics systems. The journal is also an important resource for industries not yet using robots, as their potential value to a much broader industry base becomes apparent.
Academics and researchers, and engineers and managers working in a wide range of manufacturing industries including automotive and energy industries, electrical and electronics, mechanical, military and defense, and the food industry.
