The manufacturing and integration of autonomous and embedded sensors through a combination of micro- and nanosystem technologies have been revolutionizing self-powered, high bandwidth devices for advance manufacturing (AM), artificial intelligence (AI), and IoT.
More specifically, nano and MEMS sensors are the building blocks for a vast range of applications, from continuous real-time health (wearable) and environmental monitoring (gas, pressure, temperature, etc.) to enabling embedded mobile Internet services (wireless), including smart/connected cars and unattended vehicles (UAV) (inertial). As these devices have numbered in the tens of billions, the potential for disruptive innovation has been immense.
This Special Issue aims to introduce the design, manufacturing, packaging, and integration of autonomous and embedded sensors through a combination of micro- and nanosystems. Topics in general include, but are not limited to:
-Autonomous and embedded sensors: design, manufacture, packaging, and reliability;
-Biosensors (electrical/optical and chemical) and their integration to MEMS, CMOS, and microfluidic systems;
-Sensor interconnectors/interfaces and their testing;
-Acoustic/electromagnetic/electrostatic interactions for sensor/actuator design;
-Graphene/TMDs-based nanosensors and transducers;
-Electronic circuits/PCBs for MEMS and nanosensors; -MEMS/Nanogenerators for self-sustaining sensors and sensor nodes/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 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.
