This Special Issue will focus on the subject of smart sensors and control systems, with a particular emphasis on the description of how low cost sensors can contribute to get simple and efficient control actions. Papers discussing new sensor ideas, including new materials, will be welcome. Moreover, contributions including equipment that operate thanks to the added value of their intrinsic nonlinearities will be highly considered. Potential authors must also propose validated innovative sensing principles. Both experimental works on sensors and the proposal of new measurement paradigms will be strongly considered. Learning sensors, dynamical networks of sensors that represent further perspectives for smart sensors in innovative control systems, will be also a topic of the Special Issue.

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.
