Special Issue in Sensors: IoT, AI Based Digital Twin for Smart Manufacturing
Thanks to the rapid development and applications of advanced technologies, we are experiencing the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, which is a revolution towards smart manufacturing. The wide use of cyberphysical systems and the Internet of Things has led to the era of big data in industrial manufacturing. Artificial intelligence emerges as a powerful analytics tool to process and analyze big data. These advanced technologies result in the introduction of a new concept in Industry 4.0: smart manufacturing. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight innovative developments with respect to the current challenges and opportunities for the applications of artificial intelligence in smart manufacturing. Topics include but are not limited to the following: real-time monitoring with machine learning and deep learning; artificial intelligence for predictive maintenance; artificial intelligence for smarter cybersecurity; production scheduling with reinforcement learning; artificial intelligence and robotics in smart manufacturing; IoT-enabled smart manufacturing; digital twin-driven smart manufacturing.

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. 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.
