Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Positioning and navigation of autonomous vehicles (including automated cars, unmanned ground and air vehicles (UGVs and UAVs) and drones) rely mainly on GNSS; however, GNSS cannot maintain the accuracy, reliability, continuity, and robustness of the positioning solution while being affected by radiofrequency interference. Such interference could be intentional, as in the case of jamming or spoofing, or it could be unintentional, as in the case of harmonics from other wireless systems using frequency bands close to GNSS bands, such as 5G. The presence of such signals poses a significant threat to future autonomous vehicles, as it could cause a malfunction of the positioning service that might result in serious safety issues. Therefore, the main objective of this Special Issue is to feature the present advances and survey papers in research areas related to interference signal detection, and mitigation for GNSS-based positioning applications. Invited original research contributions can cover a wide range of topics, including but not limited to the following:

  • Analysis of the impact of GNSS interference on land, airborne, and marine navigation applications;
  • Advanced signal processing and spectral estimation methods for GNSS interference detection and mitigation;
  • Case studies and new results on GNSS interference detection and mitigation methods;
  • Analysis of the impact of GNSS jamming and spoofing on the operation of autonomous platforms;
  • Enhancing the safety and reliability of autonomous systems in the presence of interference;
  • Multi-sensor fusion with other sensors and systems (e.g., INS, radars, cameras, LiDAR) for mitigating the impact of GNSS interference.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2600 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.
