Special Issue Information
Navigation and control are fundamental to certain unmanned vehicles, such as aircrafts, ships, and submersibles. During complicated events, None-GNSS information and other complex situations, the need to achieve autonomous navigation and control has become more urgent. In recent years, based on inertial navigation, intelligent autonomous navigation and control technology that integrates artificial intelligence, vision, lasers, millimeter waves and acoustic waves, geophysical fields and other forms of technology have played an important role in unmanned system navigation, environmental perception and situational awareness.
The current Special Issue, "Recent Advances in Unmanned System Navigation and Control", addresses innovative forms of technology, such as environmental perception and understanding, real-time accurate autonomous positioning and intelligent navigation in complex scenarios. In the development and trends of autonomous navigation, visual navigation, laser navigation, geophysical field navigation, SLAM, navigation feature modeling, navigation map construction, target tracking algorithm and multi-sensor fusion algorithm, these forms of technology have been used to conduct the related key discussions on technology. This Special Issue contributes to the research concerning the autonomous navigation and control of unmanned systems. We invite submissions of studies that address these topics.
The current Special Issue includes topics on, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Environmental perception;
- Simultaneous localization and mapping;
- Visual-based navigation;
- Laser-based navigation;
- Geophysical field-based navigation;
- Cooperative navigation;
- Navigation feature modeling;
- Navigation map construction;
- Target tracking;
- Tracking of dynamic targets;
- Three-dimensional mapping;
- Multi-sensor fusion.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
