Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) consists of many nodes that come together to form a network based on some requirements. Here, nodes act as both routers and hosts. The transmission is broadcasted within the transmission range. A sensor network consists of a group of small, powered devices and a wireless or wired networked infrastructure. The sensor devices record conditions of environments, such as industry, firm, hospital and many more. Nowadays, numerous sensors are used in many applications to make our lifestyle more comfortable. These sensors require electric energy for functioning. Nowadays, energy consumption is one of the key issues to develop a wireless network by using sensors. To periodically charge the mobile devices and sensors by using a power cord is always not possible. It also obstructs the operations of the devices. Energy harvesting is one of the popular approaches that can solve these issues as it powers sensors and mobile nodes. Here, the network is developed in such a manner that it can be self-sustaining by using energy harvesting from many sources, such as solar power, thermal energy, electromagnetic waves, wind energy and many more. The recent advances of green communication also require to develop energy harvesting based communication techniques. This has become one of the major requirements as the number of mobile nodes and sensors has increased rapidly, which consumes much power.

The intent of this Special Issue is to invite scholars, researchers and other innovators to collectively show their state-of-the-art knowledge and their cutting-edge innovations in the area of energy harvesting in MANET and sensor networks for next-generation computing and communication systems. Theoretical investigation and prototype implementation-based studies are particularly welcomed.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
