About This Special Issue
The ocean has a volume of 1.4 billion cubic kilometers, covering 71% of the earth with extremely abundant biological and mineral resources. However, majority of the ocean can’t be directly reached due to the harsh marine environment. Artificial Nanosensory system must be used in many exploration and exploitation of marine resources. Nowadays, lots of efforts have been made to develop new technology for navigation system of underwater vehicle with the increasingly improved requirements of precise positioning, obstacles-avoidance, energy-saving in locomotion and stabilization in response to turbulent currents.

In this Special Issue on Nanosensory system, we would like to strengthen this very specific field of applications. When exploring the shallow sea bed, accessing the marine ecosystems, and carrying out oceanographic investigations, a lot of tasks can only be accomplished by underwater robots. Moreover, there is a growing market for Nanosensory system, since manned missions are very expensive.

The main focus of this special issue is on the most recent theoretical developments, results, and applications in the area of methods for Nanosensory system. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Robotic Fish
2. One and two dimension smart sensors
3. Visual serving control
4. Machine learning
5. Embedded systems
6. Multi-agent systems
7. Neural network
8. Wireless sensor networks
9. Mission programming
10. Underwater robot navigation
11. Dynamics and computational algorithms
12. Artificial Intelligence
13. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM)
14. Underwater robot localization

    Abstract: Macrophages are mononuclear phagocytes generated from monocyte emigrated from blood circulation. Macrophages mediated the innate and adaptive immunity through different routes, and cytokine production is one of these routes. Signal transducer and activators of transcription (STATs) are cytoplasmic transcription factors that are key mediators of cyt... Show More
