Our journal deals with the topics Robotics and Production - Integration, Application, Solutions and serves as a main medium offering this dynamic industry an exclusive media platform. There are many reasons to dedicate this topic an own journal. The robotic industry is in change and will be a
central part of smart factories in the future. This industry is not only one of the main driving forces for technology and economic efficiency. It also opens up countless new operational areas and application fields in the industrial
environment and conquers the mid-sized sector at the same time. Humans and robots cooperate increasingly closely and professional service robotics also offers suggestions for developments in the industrial sector. The robot will be an integral component of modern production. Thereby the topic solutions and the question about which applications can be implemented in the context of robotics play a significant role.
