Special Issue "GNSS and Fusion with Other Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2018)
Countless developments continue to enhance GNSS accuracy, reliability and continuity performance and applicability. These include the development of new constellations, signal capture and aiding of sensors, and robust signal processing and integration algorithms. The parallel introduction of increasingly-performing smartphone sensors that are capable of aiding or replacing GNSS, in partly- or totally-denied environments, is resulting in nearly seamless outdoor/indoor navigation. The spectacular development of vehicle-borne, low-cost collision avoidance sensors is making drive-less vehicles an emerging reality.
This Special Issue intends to describe and interconnect these innovations, analyze their advantages and limitations, and demonstrate potential new applications. The main themes and keywords to guide potential authors are as follows:
- Reliable positioning and navigation
- Navigation with smartphone and wearable sensors
- Driver-less vehicular navigation
Navigation, positioning, location, GNSS signal interference, jamming, spoofing, reliability, resilience, authentication, accuracy, continuity; inertial measuring units, accelerometer, gyro, barometer, compass, camera and other smartphone and wearable sensors; LiDAR, radar, visual and thermal infrared cameras, ultrasonic, collision avoidance V2V, vehicle-to-vehicle positioning, advanced driver assistance navigation systems, interference mitigation, null-steering, heading determinationDr. Daniele Borio

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 monthly 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 1800 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.
