Special Issue Information
In recent years, new applications of quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) have constituted one of the most interesting fields of research due to its vertical take-off and landing capabilities, the simplicity of their construction, and the important technological advances in control, sensing, communication, and energy storage. The unique capabilities of the UAV, including high maneuverability, small size, and being easy to control, enable more and more applications. The major advantage of such vehicles over traditional helicopters is its fixed rotor propulsion mode. In general, its four rotors are aligned such that two rotors on opposite ends rotate in the same direction and the other two in the opposite direction. It is expected that next generation UAVs will be more autonomous, with better intelligence, exquisite functions and advanced performance in every aspect, all enabled by artificial intelligence (AI), advanced sensing devices, modern guidance and control systems, and design techniques.
From a methodological perspective, we are interested in works that go beyond traditional approaches. The topics encapsulate, but are not limited to, the following topics:
(1) Flight control technique
(2) Autonomous UAV
(3) Applications in transportation, security, rescue, surveillance, photography, communication gateway, etc.
(4) Coordinated formation flight
(5) Sensor and actuator
(6) Vision system
(7) New configuration

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. Inventions 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 1500 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.
