Special Issue "Multi Sensor-Fusion for Autonomous Robots"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2020.
Interests: mobile robotics; sensor fusion; field robotics; SLAM; robot localization; autonomous vehicle navigation
We cordially invite you to submit your research to our Special Issue “Multi Sensor-Fusion for Autonomous Robots”.
When navigating challenging environments, modern autonomous robots often use various sensors as well as multiple modalities. These include exteroceptive (e.g., cameras, lidar, and radar) or proprioceptive (e.g., inertial measurement units or wheel odometry) sensors, and combining them generally significantly increases the reliability of the robot.
To efficiently make use of two or more of these sensors, roboticists employs a strategy known as “sensor fusion”, which intelligently fuses sensory data derived from disparate sources. The resulting information is more reliable than that generated from sources used individually.
This Special Issue focuses on modern algorithms that perform fusing strategies with application for mobile robots. The techniques can range from direct and indirect fusion to centralized and decentralized methods. For this particular Special Issue, all results should illustrate the proposed algorithms operating on a physical robot.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
