Applications of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been growing tremendously in recent years. Target tracking and localization with WSNs has been a topic of interest in many applications. Target tracking through WSNs has a large spectrum of applications, such as surveillance, robot navigation, natural disaster relief, traffic monitoring, and pursuit evasion games. Localization has a wide variety of applications, such as inventory management, intrusion detection, road traffic monitoring, health monitoring, and reconnaissance.
Localization aims to determine the position of an object in space, and tracking seeks to identify the position of an object over time. Many algorithms and systems have been proposed and developed for tracking and localization with WSNs. There are still challenges to solving the complex tracking and location problems, exhibiting varying characteristics of the target to be tracked and localized, the environment where the target is tracked and localized, and the availability of sensor network technology.
This Special Issue solicits high-quality papers on recent advances in wireless sensor networks for tracking and localization.

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 Sensor and Actuator Networks is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
