Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Today, smart cities are steadily becoming more prominent, promising to improve the daily life of citizens and support their habits by proposing subject-oriented services. In urban scenarios, this improvement is mainly directed to people and vehicles, which may take advantage from surveillance systems providing services and guaranteeing safe living environments.

Novel artificial intelligence methods, techniques, and systems—particularly those based on machine/deep learning, computer vision and internet of things—are emerging to solve real-life problems, ranging from video surveillance, road safety and traffic monitoring, and the prevention of accidents or critical events, to intelligent transportation and the management of public services. In fact, AI-based approaches, also leveraging on IoT or cloud networks, may serve as underlying methods to tackle this wide range of problems.

This Issue aims to gather works that propose systems, approaches, solutions, and experimental results that have the ambition to contribute in an original and highly innovative way to all topics related to smart cities, in order to stimulate and increase the scientific production in this rapidly growing area of research.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
