Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering and control engineering. Mechatronic system is extremely important for various high-performance vehicles covering robotic platforms, wagons, motorcycles, trucks, buses, railed vehicles (trains, trams), watercraft (ships, boats), aircraft and spacecraft etc. The appropriate functionalities of these mechatronic systems are necessary to guarantee the safe conduct of vehicle motions.
This special issue aims to gather the most recent advances on mechatronic systems for high-performance vehicles, and give them the proper platform to be presented to the scientific community. Topics include, but are not limited to:
· Sensing technologies for robotic vehicle, watercraft, aircraft and spacecraft
· High power density and high motion performance electrical and hydraulic systems
· Analysis, design and feedback control of mechatronic systems
· Electrical monitoring and management systems
· Environmental monitoring and control systems
· Motion sensing and control systems
· Landing gear and real-time brake control
· Onboard safety, rescue and protection system
· Utilities management systems
· Health monitoring systems

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.
