Special Issue "Advance in Sensors and Sensing Systems for Driving and Transport"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Today, transportation and driving face multiple difficult challenges. The cities and the highways become increasingly crowded, traffic accidents claim many lives, the energy resources are limited, pollution causes a wide range of problems such as global warming and damage to wildlife and to the human health, and the population in the developed world is aging rapidly, a process that limits the driving capacity and therefore the mobility.
Faced with these challenges, the transportation industries turn to automating some or all the tasks of driving, aiming to increase traffic safety, reduce congestion, reduce energy consumption and pollution, and help the impaired or elderly people keep their mobility.
A crucial aspect of automating the driving tasks is reliable sensing of the environment: position of other traffic participants, their speed, their type, the state of the vehicle itself, the situation of the traffic beyond the vehicle sensing area, weather conditions, road surface condition, and many more.
This Special Issue aims to highlight recent advances in sensors and sensing systems for driving and transport. Topics include, but are not limited, to:
- Laser and radar sensor technologies and processing
- Video and image sensing technologies and processing
- Vehicle to infrastructure and vehicle to vehicle communication
- Driver condition sensing and monitoring
- Vehicle condition sensing and monitoring
- Human machine interaction sensing
- Weather condition sensing
- Sensor models for environment perception
- Automatic sensor calibration

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 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 1800 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.
