Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past decades, an ever deepening understanding of the basic science principles behind sensor function combined with powerful engineering optimization methods has continuously pushed sensing capabilities forward. In many cases, fundamental physical limits have been reached - and sometimes even circumvented. Nevertheless, delivering satisfactory sensor performance remains an elusive goal for many critical applications scenarios. In the majority of these cases, the root cause for these difficulties lies in complex, dynamic signals of interest or likewise complex, dynamic environments in which these signals have to be sensed. In such situations, no single sensor configuration can be relied upon to continuously meet performance expectations. Adaptive sensing paradigms are designed to address these issues and hence hold great promise to extend technical sensing capabilities to meet the requirements of demanding and critical applications. To reach these goals requires advances in several key areas of sensors research. Examples are insights into the signals and the environments in which they are sensed, novel sensor designs that offer multiple levels of adaptation along with the necessary paradigms to control them, and methods for the interpretation of non-stationary sensor outputs. Making the most out of adaptive sensing strategies will also require intelligent integration of these aspects.
