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.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
