Industry 4.0 (I4.0) is an innovative paradigm aimed towards the fusion of the digital and physical world through the advent of technologies, an amalgamation of physical and digital systems that has proven to be revolutionary, and enabling the communication between physical objects and cyber infrastructures. Condition monitoring is a challenging Industry 4.0 field that features the interfaces needed for smooth information exchange between the plant control system, smart sensing tasks, process visualization unit, and operator. In this sense, the proper combination of emergent techniques, such as, computer vision, augmented and mixed reality, and artificial intelligence, are playing a key role in human–machine integration/collaboration tasks, in order to make Industry 4.0 possible, and the concept of “smart factory” a reality more each day.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present and highlight novel algorithms, methods, and applications of emergent techniques for creating augmented and intelligent vision systems for Industry 4.0, providing relevant and contextualized information to the human operators.

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 papers will be 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. Journal of Imaging is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
