Cities are experiencing a digital transformation that requires immediate attention in terms of energy, transport, mobility, communication, security, education, tourism, and social aspects, as well as promoting all those actions that seek to improve quality of life and sustainable development. ICT has brought revolutionary applications with the potential to drastically improve the way people live. In this context, smartphones and the IoT have made the Internet and people sensory, thus enabling more proactive and less reactive intelligent applications. This Special Issue encourages original and high-quality works with an applied purpose addressing infrastructure, transportation, and human mobility in the context of Smart Cities. This includes emerging technologies with integrated sensors, wireless communications, and artificial intelligence, such as WSN applications; security issues in IoT infrastructures; the development of real-time information systems through I2P (infrastructure to pedestrian), V2I (vehicle to infrastructure), V2V (vehicle to vehicle) or V2P (vehicle to pedestrian); and the use of machine learning, expert systems and intelligent control, among others. In addition, this Special Issue will accept review manuscripts which show the state-of-the-art and potential of both advanced systems and applications in the topic of intelligent solutions for Smart Cities.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Mobile apps and AI applications integrated in Smart Cities;
- Simulation, deployment, and testbed platforms for Smart Cities;
- Accessibility, resilience, and security of IoT infrastructures for Smart Cities;
- Real-time information systems for ITS in Smart Cities;
- AI techniques for devices and embedded systems in Smart Cities;
- Review manuscripts on intelligent advanced systems and their applications for infrastructures, pedestrians, and vehicles in Smart Cities.

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.
