Sensors are a very critical part of any types of robots working on land, space and underwater. No matter if the robot is autonomous or teleoperated, sensors are the robot’s contact with the outside world or its own inner parameters. Modern living environment nowadays have naturally set a big challenge for sensor technology to furnish robot with intelligence and reliability. The great achievements of parts fabrication technique and computer technology have greatly supports sensor technology in producing sensor devices that smarter, more sophisticated, high accuracy and robust, fast in data acquisition and processing, cost effective, and smaller in size. Some example advanced sensors like IR sensors, sound and voice sensors, ultrasonic range sensors, positional encoders, speed sensors, etc. have already play an important role in modern robotics.

A great number of researches have been conducted in the field of sensors for application in robotics. This includes various types of sensing principles such as optical waveguide, vision, magnetic, electrical, biological, acoustic, thermal, wireless and network. Related works also reported performance of sensors in real robots such as sensing fusion, sensing-based manipulation and navigation, face/object detection and recognition, human sensing, teleoperation, etc. Application of smart sensors in smart robot includes the area of rescue robot, service robot, industrial robot, haptic interaction, human-robot interaction, space exploration robot and underwater robot, and many more.
