Special Issue "GNSS and Emerging Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
Interests: precise positioning; alternative positioning in GNSS harsh environment; sensor fusion
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) has made tremendous impacts on engineering, science as well as our daily life from its precise positioning and timing capability and has become an indispensable sensor in various fields. For example, aircraft navigation and surveillance from take-off to land primarily depend on GNSS. The structural health of high-rise buildings and bridges is routinely monitored from GNSS-based precise positioning. Time synchronization among base stations of a cellular network is achieved within tens of nanoseconds using GNSS timing information. More recently, autonomous cars and drones primarily depend on GNSS for its navigation capability, and various Internet-of-Things (IOT) applications also utilize GNSS-based positioning information to analyze consumer behaviors of smartphone users.
In the near future, the number of GNSS satellites will increase with a stronger signal power in diverse frequencies, which is expected to provide a better or breakthrough sensing capability to many applications. This special issue intends to solicit papers that introduce the use of GNSS to solve challenging problems in emerging applications. The use of alternative position, navigation, and timing (PNT) systems to GNSS is also within the scope of this issue.

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.
