Special Issue "Sensors for Fault Diagnosis and Prognostics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: maintenance of machine systems; data fusion; fault diagnostics and prognostics
Interests: machine and structural health monitoring; fault diagnostics and prognostics
The recent advancements in automation, artificial intelligence, digitization, and data communication have widely influenced the sensing fundamentals and methods for fault diagnostics and prognostics. Noncontact-based sensing methods have made fault diagnostics and prognostics possible even for those assets which are operated around very harsh and hazardous surroundings. The challenges with regard to size and resolution of sensing elements have been addressed comprehensively in the last decade due the evolution of smart materials and mechanisms. Challenges with raw data conversion into useful information have been addressed by state-of-the-art algorithms based on statistical tools, signal processing techniques and data fusion. All these developments starting from sensing elements to reliable prediction of fault in a machine have made things possible which were not a few years ago.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions dealing with sensing methods and approaches for fault diagnosis and prognostics, including sensor materials, sensor data generation and acquisition and techniques to use sensor data for diagnosis and prognosis. Special consideration will be given to papers discussing sensor material modelling and measurement, algorithms for converting raw sensor data and experimental studies on fault monitoring.Prof. Dr. Andrew G Star

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.
