Cognitive Robotics (CR) endows a robot with intelligent behaviour, merging two research fields; physical systems and control architectures. The first field is designed to adapt to dynamic environments, while the latter explicitly considers the need to acquire and exploit past experiences.
In practice, the research field of CR is interdisciplinary, inspired by knowledge and methods from areas such as psychology, biology, signal processing, physics, information theory, mathematics and mechanical science. As CR develops, the cross-fertilisation of these research areas will continue.
This special issue aims to promote technologies like artificial intelligence, computational computing and computational neuroscience. These areas currently provide the best tools for upgrading robots to near-human intelligence. The overall goal of this special issue is to foster links between the fields of cognitive science, robotics and machine intelligence, and promote the methodologies required for CR research.
