Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The continuous advancements in sensor technologies, covering from micro to macro-scales, joined to the powerful developments in communications, including wireless and internet, allow gathering information from anywhere, even in real-time, which must be processed for decision making. All this must be put together and specific research challenges arise from the point of view of Collaborative Sensors. The objective of this special issue is to reach in the high variety of potential applications and real problems, where Sensor Technologies and Computer Science (hard and soft computing and specifically Artificial Intelligence) as a whole can provide efficient solutions.

Topics of interest within the scope of this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Distribution and deployments of sensors in coordination: design of low-cost, lower-power and multi-functional systems for exploring areas based on in-situ sensing
  • Sensing technologies and materials: integration of sensors into structured networks, including intelligent sensors. Different sensors (micro, macro, middle) are to be put in collaboration
  • Communications: protocols, methodologies and structures for transferring data and information. New trends in wireless and internet
  • Data acquisition and management: design of logic architectures to gather information from heterogeneous sensors under different spatio-temporal scales. Architectures based on Multi-Agent Systems
  • Sensor data fusion, Data mining and Artificial intelligence: design of algorithms, methods or procedures for combining data and fusion from disparate sources and decision making based on sensor collaboration.

Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts for publication on the following (but not limited to) areas:

  • Robots and autonomous vehicles (ground, aerial, marine, underwater): fleets of units or multi-sensors in cooperation
  • Domotics: in-situ and remote control systems for comfort, energy efficiency or security
  • Medicine: health monitoring and patient tracking, diagnosis
  • Sciences: chemical, physical, biological, geological processes tracking, monitoring and control
  • Agriculture: yield estimation, site-specific or global treatments, machinery equipment, autonomous vehicles and systems
  • Forest and forestry: inventories, diseases and pests monitoring and control
  • Surveillance: security, monitoring
  • Vehicles in action (cars, tractors, caterpillars, trucks, aero planes, ships): security, operability, comfort, driver aid
  • Road and air traffic: control and monitoring
  • Transportation: public, private, security, scheduling
  • Catastrophes/disasters management and early prevention and responses: fire, flooding, volcanic activity
  • Environmental monitoring: pollution, micro-climates, land use, land cover, change detection
  • Production control systems: manufacturing plants, quality control
  • Search and rescue: localization and intervention
  • Energy: monitoring, control and production, including renewable energies
  • Leak detection: oil, gas or water pipelines
