Scope and Objective

There are several conferences on engineering approach of robotics. The primary topics for the SYROCO 2018 will be the control aspects of robotics applications. Robot control technology is widely used for space, surgery, rehabilitation, micro machine, entertainment, underwater, civil engineering, professional and domestic services, security etc. The control will continue to play an increasing role in the areas of robotics including robot-robot and human-robot cooperation in various dynamic scenarios. Contributions on basic research as well as on relevant applications are included.
In addition, the Moving devices (mobile robots, vehicles and UAVs) which can operate in non-industrial (nonstandard) environment need to have totally new functions and behaviours. It is not enough to execute a pre-programmed action line. They must be able to adapt to changing environments, make their own decisions and in addition, they might have to socially fit into the human environment. They have to follow regulations developed originally for human beings. It means that new problems of control are emerging and have to be solved. This Symposium provides an opportunity to present and discuss research and development work in the hot area of intelligent autonomous systems from the point of view of control.
