Special Issue "Laser Sensors for Displacement, Distance and Position"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 February 2019).
Laser sensors can be used to measure distances to objects and their related parameters (displacements, position, surface profiles, velocities and vibrations). Laser sensors are based on many different optical techniques, such as triangulation, time-of-flight, confocal and interferometric sensors. As laser sensor technology has been improved, the size and cost of sensors have decreased, which led to widespread use of laser sensors in many areas. In addition to traditional manufacturing industry applications, laser sensors are increasingly used in robotics, surveillance, autonomous driving and biomedical areas.
The goal of this Special Issue is to provide the most recent research results in laser sensor technology and its application. Topics of interests include (i) improvement of basic laser sensor technology (sensor design and modelling, new sensor technology), (ii) sensor signal processing (calibration and filtering algorithm), and (iii) applications to various areas. Review papers on this topic are also welcome.Prof. Dr. Young Soo Suh
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 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.
