Special Issue "Robotic Sensory Systems for Environment Protection and Conservation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2016)
I am proud to announce this Special Issue, addressing the state-of-the-art of robotic systems and related sensors technologies applied to environment monitoring (EM).
Environment protection and conservation researchers manage different biophysical parameters measured over wide areas. The data used for analysis is sometimes acquired manually or through less accessible methods.
Other sensory alternatives, such as robotic systems endowed with dedicated on-board sensor systems, have been reported for pollution monitoring, soils conservation, natural disaster research, and nuclear and radiation accidents.
This Special Issue is an effort to sum up some of these technologies and respective applications. Welcome applications and case studies are: natural disasters, gases emission measuring, pollution monitoring, biomass estimation, agricultural management, natural resources research, and many others.
Authors are encouraged to write review articles, original research papers, short communications, and field reports addressing real applications.

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.
