Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

AI, machine learning and big data technology applications in the field of the Internet of Things (IoT) have received increasing attention from both data scientists and engineers. With the massive amount of data or information being collected using sensors, AI technologies are training data science models for next-generation IoT operations, such as smart facility management, IoT predictive maintenance, smart cities, cyber security of information exchange, intelligence computation for security measures, blockchain, etc. The whole process of data collection through sensors and data processing using AI is called big data analysis as regards sensors and applications.

This Special Issue intends to provide an international forum for researchers to showcase the up-to-date results on AI, machine learning, big data and cyber security technologies in the fields of sensors. Recent progress and future directions of AI in sensors and applications will be investigated. This Special Issue also intends to bring together impressive efforts in computer science and various engineering fields in relation to finding common and cross-discipline research topics. This Special Issue will include, but is not limited to, the following topics:

- AI-enhanced facility management;

- Human-centric ubiquitous computing;

- AI-based computer vision topics on sensor-delivered images;

- Big data research with sensors and applications;

- IoT applications with sensors;

- Cyber-physics systems with sensors;

- Intelligent devices and instruments for smart building/city design;

- Machine learning in IoT;

- Blockchain applications in IoT with sensors;

- Security and privacy in intelligent IoT systems;

- Building Information Modeling (BIM) and its applications;

- IoT and sensors enabled smart healthcare;

- Behavior and cognitive informatics with smart sensors.

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 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. 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 2200 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.
