The labor shortage and cost have led to a bottleneck in agriculture, with smart agriculture, an emerging area where sensor-based technologies play an important role, being proposed as a solution. With the rapid development in sensing and AI-based vision technologies, intelligent agriculture applications have increasingly been implemented, while advanced sensor technologies are used to produce novel tools to reduce labor.
This Special Issue, “Intelligent Agricultural Applications with Sensing and Vision System”, aims to bring together recent research and developments concerning novel sensing and vision systems applied in agriculture. We welcome papers addressing sensing and vision systems for a wide range of agricultural tasks, including, but not limited to, recent research and developments in the following areas:
- Advanced imaging technology: hyper-spectral, multispectral, fluorescence, thermal, 3-dimension imaging technology;
- AI-driven phenotypic analysis: crop yield estimation, dynamic growth prediction, health status determination, microorganism and pest identification;
- High-throughput phenotyping;
- Airborne sensors (UAVs);
- AI cloud or edge computing application;
- Sensors for robotic applications in crop management;
- Sensors for positioning, navigation and obstacle detection.

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. 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.
