Hollinger Published online: 26 February 2018 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature 2018 Online decision making is an important part of robotics prob- Following an open call for papers, the 12 selected arti- lems in which mobile robots operate in unknown or partially cles (with a 50% acceptance rate out of 24 submissions) known dynamic environments with the goal of acquiring that comprise this special issue contain a common thread information about some studied phenomena. This can be of distributed planning for multi-robot active perception, found in problems such as autonomous data collection, envi- navigation, and manipulation. To solve these challenging ronmental monitoring, and robotic exploration missions that problems, the authors leverage and build on techniques such can be considered as variants of robotic information gath- as belief space planning, self-organizing maps, Gaussian ering. The key aspect of these problems is that the overall Markov random ﬁelds, model-free control, homotopy con- mission performance can only be evaluated after the mis- strained optimization, and team orienteering.
