Special Issue Information

This Special Issue presents an interesting opportunity for engineers and researchers who work in this area to meet and discuss about the state-of-the-art, difficulties, innovations, and improvements in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) involved in components and system testing, fault diagnosis, condition monitoring, risk and safety assessment, and management that enable more reliable systems. These topics lead to advances in technology, instrumentation, and procedures that could push forward laboratory and university capabilities to develop more dependable wireless sensor networks and their validation, improve cooperation with accreditation, inspection and certification providers, and increase accuracy and compliance analysis, with a strong impact on the quality, reliability, and safety delivered to the environment, citizens, and customers on the global market.

Prospective authors can provide original contributions in this Special Issue which will cover the following aspects (but not limited to these):

  • Wireless sensor networks for testing and diagnostics;
  • Wireless sensor networks for condition monitoring and maintenance of industrial process, plants, and complex systems;
  • Wireless sensor networks for fault detection and diagnosis;
  • Reliable design and testing for wireless sensor networks;
  • Reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety (RAMS); risk assessment and management for wireless sensor networks.
