Assisting and empowering humans in daily activities is urgently required in all application areas (industry, rehabilitation, etc.). Collaborative robots and exoskeletons are becoming intensively adopted, and there is a need to refine both design and control methodologies in order to achieve high performance and improve usability, to finally effectively apply such solutions in real applications. Advanced solutions are nowadays available for actuation, design solutions, and control algorithms, but many challenges are still present in such device development. This Special Issue aims to cover the current developments in the field, with a specific focus on actuation, mechanical/electrical design, and advanced control. Contributions from different application fields are welcome.Dr. Loris Roveda

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.
