Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sensors continue to rapidly evolve becoming increasingly smaller, cheaper, accurate, reliable, efficient, responsive and also including communication capability. These key factors, as well as the availability of new technologies, are contributing to the growth of the market of consumer electronics sensors, thus reducing their costs. This scenario fosters the integration of sensors in the everyday objects of our lives, thus moving towards the creation of Smart Environments, which are aimed at making human interaction with systems a pleasant experience. In turn, it is possible to imagine new applications never envisioned a few years ago in a wide variety of areas (e.g. in Entertainment and Virtual Reality, Smart Home, Smart City, Medicine and Health care, Indoor Navigation, Automotive, Automation and Maintenance, etc.).

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight technologies and solutions encompassing the use of mass-market sensors (such as touch, motion, wearable, image, proximity and position sensors, etc.) in current and emerging applications for interacting with Smart Environments. Authors are encouraged to submit original research, reviews, and high rated manuscripts concerning (but not limited to) the following topics:

 

  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Multimodal Systems and Interfaces
  • Natural User Interfaces
  • Mobile and Wearable Computing
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • Assistive Technologies
  • Sensor data fusion in multi-sensor systems
  • Semantic technologies for multimodal integration of sensor data
  • Sensor knowledge representation
  • Annotation of sensor data
  • Innovative sensing devices
  • Innovative uses of existing sensors
  • Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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).
