Coined as an enabler for computers to perceive the world without relying on humans for data input, the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm evolved full circle to aim at enriching our perception of the reality, encompassing new technologies and application fields along the way.
Data is central to the IoT paradigm: from primary sensor data, directly related to the physical world, to processed data that adds new meanings to our view of the world. Many challenges arise as the IoT permeates our world, especially for low-power resource-constrained devices, such as data integrity, proper processing and security, energy requirements, energy cost and harvesting, device cost, lifetime and quality of service, deployment and maintenance cost.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together innovative developments in areas related to data-centric IoT, including but not limited to:
- data sensing (transducers, reliability, cost, energy)
- data processing (on nodes, distributed, aggregation, discovery, big data)
- making sense of the data, self-learning (pattern discovery, prediction, self-configuration)
- data integrity (sensing accuracy and noise resilience, storage, transfer, efficient checking, tampering detection)
- applications (both new and legacy ones enjoying a new life)
- high-level methods and tools for application design
- maintenance (troubleshooting, recurrent costs)
- cost (nodes, energy, design, deployment, maintenance)
- deployment (effort, error prevention, localization)
- energy (reliability, management)
We solicit both review and original research manuscripts, especially related to challenging aspects of the IoT. Of particular interest are the advances towards overcoming the IoT adoption barriers and large scale deployment.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
