Annotation -
Sensor, control, and communication technologies are strategic components of numerous industrial processes and systems. Many of them are aimed to energy optimal, safe and reliable operation of robotics systems and technological processes. Progress in development of these technologies opens up new opportunities of practical applications of the advances made in other research fields like functional materials. Special attention is paid in this subject to the application of advanced functional materials and technologies in sensors, actuators and robotic systems.
