During the last couple of decades sensor technologies have seen a revolutionary advancement in new platforms influenced by both fabrication approaches yielding very small sensors as well as new mechanisms to monitor a wide range of external parameters. This sensor revolution has encouraged investigators to explore new approaches for integrating sensors into a variety of platforms to monitor a wide range of phenomenon. Based on these advancements, this special issue of Sensors seeks to compile a collection of fundamental research papers representing state of the art in sensor systems embedded into a variety of platforms. The focus here is both on the development of the sensor technology as well as it integration into the platform.
