Advances in sensing technology and the proliferation of sensors have been the main drivers for automated recognition and interpretation of object motion from sensor data. Making sense of sensor data is an important objective for multiple-object tracking, and is an essential task in many applications, including surveillance, oceanography, autonomous vehicles, computer vision, remote sensing, biomedical research, and so on. The last decade has witnessed many advances in the field, both in terms of theory and applications.
This call for papers invites technical contributions to Sensors Special Issue on “Multiple Object Tracking: Making Sense of the Sensors”. The Special Issue aims to provide an up-to-date overview of multiple object tracking theory and solutions, as well as a forum for sharing innovative applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Multiple object tracking algorithms
- Multiple object system models
- Metrics and performance evaluation for multiple object tracking
- Track before detect
- Sensor management for multiple object tracking
- Tracking with unknown system parameters
- Multiple object system identification
- Distributed multiple object tracking

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.
