This special issue aims to publish pioneered works in control systems and robotics on the forefront of the emerging biology-based engineering discipline. There is increasing number of researchers, who fuse robotics and control engineering principles with the knowledge and tools of molecular life sciences in order to solve contemporary problems through the measurement, modeling, and rational manipulation of biological systems. These researchers are more rapidly creating biology-based technologies to benefit a range of diverse areas including human and environmental health, agriculture, manufacturing, and defense.
Recently, many researchers in controls and robotics have explored complicated problems arising from societal needs and concerns, and directed leading-edge research teams to address those challenge problems, in which design and control of biofunctionalized systems based on measured biological responses are the central issue. Through this special issue, we wish to deliver essential and advanced bioengineering information in applications of control and robotics technologies in life science. In the next few years there will surely be much more exciting developments in this area.
Judging by what we have witnessed so far, this exciting field of control systems and robotics in bioengineering is likely to produce revolutionary breakthroughs over the next decade. The special issue of the journal Sensors will cover different aspects of this field.
