Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of the journal Sensors, entitled "Sensors data fusion for healthcare", will focus on all aspects of research and development related to the field.

The multiple sources of sensing and health data now available have led to the need for data gathering optimization, in terms of data flow, and the need for data categories to become simple, fast, and accurate monitoring systems.

To this end, this Special Issue aims to collect the most recent advances in sensor data fusion for healthcare. We are inviting the submission of original and unpublished work addressing several research topics of interest, including but not limited to, the following issues:
  • data fusion
  • data aggregation
  • in-network data processing
  • data transmission optimization
  • optimized data protocols
  • architectures
  • communication networks
