Recently, mobile ad hoc networks have taken notice of the means for autonomous driving and construction of smart and connected communities. VANETs are an essential technology for autonomous driving. By aggregating and analyzing data obtained from mobile devices, smartphones, and wearable sensors, it is possible to realize crowd behavior such as congestion of public spaces in real time. Such techniques can be used for not only behavior estimation but also behavior modification of humans and objects. They can be used for behavior supports of elderly people, disaster mitigation, construction of smart communities, and so on. This Special Issue aims to collect the latest research results related to “Mobile and Wireless Ad Hoc Networks”.

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 2000 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.
