Interests: robotics and mechatronics; high performance parallel robotic machine development; sustainable/green manufacturing systems; micro/nano manipulation and MEMS devices (sensors), micro mobile robots and control of multi-robot cooperation, intelligent servo control system for the MEMS based high-performance micro-robot; web-based remote manipulation; rehabilitation robot and rescue robot
In the modern engineering world, it is rare that anything is purely mechanical or electrical engineering. More often than not, problems faced by engineers require an integration of mechanical and electrical aspects, along with control and software, to develop a viable solution. The domain of mechatronics engineering represents the fusion of these four areas. This special issue has a particular emphasis on sensors used for MEMS and micro-systems, where MEMS devices are designed to operate with a degree of intelligence. It also provides a suitable background for research in advanced mechatronics and MEMS systems as well as its fabrication. The aim of the special issue is to introduce the state-of-the-art technologies in the field of sensors, mechatronics, MEMS devices and micro-systems in order to further summarize and improve the methodologies on the micro-systems and MEMS Devices.

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 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.
