Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Perception systems play a key role in autonomous driving (AD). There are a wide variety of sensors included in such systems. Cameras, radars, and lidars are the most usual ones. Radars and cameras are the preferred option in the industry in order to avoid anti-aesthetic effects on cars’ appearance. The latest ones have undergone a small revolution thanks to the application of convolutional neural networks in the image processing. 

The current scene-understanding technologies and methodologies depend on multiple sensor systems, and there is a broad variety of sensors. GPS, IMU, cameras, radars, and lidars are the most common, and they are based on highly complex and sophisticated algorithms, which include artificial intelligence. These sensors are used for localization (visual odometry, lidar odometry, 3D maps, map matching, etc.), perception (trajectory planning, scene understanding, traffic sign detection, drivable space detection, obstacle avoidance, etc.), and other applications.

The aim of this Special Issue is to achieve an insightful perspective on the latest works in these fields and to provide the reader with a clear picture of the advances that are on the horizon. Welcomed topics include, but are not strictly limited to, the following:

  • Computer vision and image processing;
  • Lidar and 3D sensors;
  • Radar and other proximity sensors;
  • Intelligent network vehicles;
  • Vehicle intelligent detection algorithms and control;
  • Automatic vehicle trajectory planning and control;
  • Infrastructure ITS applications;
  • Advanced driver assistance systems onboard vehicles;
  • Self-driving car perception and navigation systems.

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.
