Technological development is likely to be the catalyst for the next wave of manufacturing capability, quality, and productivity gains. This development is characterized by autonomous robots, ultra-high precision, macro- and nano-scales, smart sensors, intelligent control, cyber-physical systems, and dynamic data processes that use massive amounts of data to drive smart machines. The aim of this special issue is to provide a venue for a wide range of researchers both from industry and from academia to share the most recent challenges and developments in manufacture-relevant robotics, manufacturing technologies, and innovative manufacturing strategies.
