Special Issue Information
The increase of interest in smart sensors in recent years has created a revolution in a great number of areas, such as health monitoring, smart homes, or even smart cities, in large supported by the IoT concept (itself in permanent evolution). In common, most of the considered environments are structured around distributed sensors capable of capturing several variables linked to its operation. In this Special Issue, we are focusing on predictive maintenance, which could make life easier for everyone, as it will help to realize when a system or subsystem is going to start failing. With the use of sensors and proper data analysis models, any equipment could perform periodic condition monitoring, and using this data, along with the aid of machine learning techniques, it will be possible to foresee how the equipment is going to behave in the future. This can help, for example, to know about the status of pavement without having to be continuously monitoring it, or to know when a specific piece of a machine that costs thousands of dollars is going to fail, avoiding possible critical situations.
This Special Issue aims to explore the state-of-the-art in this topic, and also how far we are from reaching the real value of autonomous predictive maintenance.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
