Autonomous aerial and ground vehicles are intelligent robotic systems that can assist or replace humans in hostile and uncertain environments. They also offer a wide range of possible applications in defense, civil search and rescue, environmental modeling and space exploration. Autonomy of such a vehicle requires a form of basic intelligence. Bio-inspired computing represents a modern approach for generating intelligent systems that focuses on improving control robustness, adaptability, and the emergent organization of the machine. This special issue aims at exhibiting the latest research achievement, findings and ideas in autonomous vehicles that benefit from bio-inspired algorithms and methods.
