Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

LIDAR sensors are currently playing an important role in the rising popularity and increasing complexity of mobile robots. The evolution of LIDAR sensors has led to, in some cases, a new mobile robot application being simply a new LIDAR application implemented in a mobile device in which the information gathered from LIDAR is not restricted to classical concepts such as positioning, mapping, navigation, and environmental modeling. This growing evolution will lead to the development of new sensor models, methods, algorithms, and techniques for real-world single and multi-sensor LIDAR applications.

The aim of this Special Issue is to present current and state­-of-the-art research in LIDAR applications in mobile robots, highlighting the development of new sensing concepts and processing methodologies. This Special Issue welcomes contributions exploring, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • New LIDAR sensing solutions for mobile robots.
  • Integration of multiple LIDARS in mobile robots.
  • Mobile robot applications based on low-cost LIDARs.
  • Extracting information from LIDAR embedded in mobile robots.
  • Alternative LIDAR applications for mobile robot self-localization and mapping.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sensors 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 2600 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.
