Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last two decades have witnessed a drastic maturing and widespread availability of the components and technologies required for aerial robotics. This has led to an unprecedented level of increase in the useful and challenging applications of aerial robotics, which include filming, precision agriculture, leakage detection in different pipe networks, electrical power-grid monitoring, environment monitoring, traffic monitoring, and wildlife monitoring. Aerial robots must be equipped with reliable positioning and actuation equipment so as to be capable of controlled flight, and this constitutes a nontrivial requirement prior to conducting research or development in this field.

This Special Issue of Sensors will focus on aerial robots’ navigation and path planning. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Aerial Robotics;
  • SLAM;
  • Navigation;
  • Path Planning;
  • Deep Learning
  • Global Position System;
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicle;
  • Precision agriculture;
  • Aerial manipulation

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 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.
