The demand for Autonomous and Unmanned Systems such as unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned surface vehicles and unmanned ground vehicles is growing continuously. Unmanned systems are operated based on dynamics, autonomous controls, learning systems, simulation systems, etc. analyzing sensory values. The importance of the design of integrated systems is growing gradually but steadily as the complexity of the system also grows. Given that deep learning is applied to diverse kinds of the approaches of unmanned systems, 3D simulation systems are also a hot topic, where deep learning algorithms are operated, validated, and tested. This Special Issue on the “Design of Autonomous and Unmanned Systems” focuses on gathering original research and literature reviews from diverse kinds of research areas related to autonomous unmanned controls, 3D simulation systems, and control learning algorithms. Manuscript submissions in the research areas mentioned in the below keywords are highly encouraged.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Designs is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
