The International Conference on Automation, Robotics and Autonomous Systems ARAS 2005 is primarily devoted to the dissemination and the provision of an effective research in areas relevant to automation, robotics, and autonomous systems. Papers are published on all aspects of theoretical analysis, from low-level processing, as in early sensory perception, to high-level symbolic data processing needed for automation and autonomous interpretation. More specifically, the following topics are particularly central to what gets published in the ARAS 2005:
