In a smart society, sensors are located everywhere, and we aim to realize a sustainable environment by utilizing the big data collected from these sensors. Thus, the sensor networks are essential as the infrastructure that supports smart society, and there is therefore a strong demand for low-cost, maintenance-free sensor network systems. A significant challenge for realizing such sensor networks is the acquisition of electrical energy to drive them. In a battery-driven sensor, it is crucial that it can operate for an extended period and this is achieved by controlling and suppressing power consumption. Progress is also being made on the practical application of devices and systems that can be driven by energy harvesting. Also, LPWA technology capable of long-distance communication using a low power consumption is becoming widespread.
This Special Issue presents the latest research on the use of energy saving, energy harvesting, and LPWA in sensor networks, and demonstrates the feasibility of sensor networks as a highly promising infrastructure for realizing a smart society.

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 2000 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.
