Leveraged by the information technologies of cyberphysical systems (CPS), the sensor-facilitated industry have made significant progress. Typical applications of sensor-facilitated CPS in industry include automation, manufacturing, robots, remote sensing and data analytics, etc. Meanwhile, with the cyber-representation of physical assets in the industrial environment, sensor-facilitated CPS also faces tremendous challenges. For example, CPS architecture needs to be well designed, cybersecurity for sensors in industrial environment needs to be defended, and a large amount of complex data needs efficient analytics. To address these, methodologies, solutions, approaches, and algorithms for sensor-facilitated CPS are highly sought after.
This Special Issue is to provide a platform for researchers to present solutions, approaches, and algorithms for CPS in the industrial environment. The topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Architecture design for sensor-facilitated CPS;
- Embedded system design and hardware and software co-design for sensor-facilitated CPS;
- Cloud, fog, and edge computing for sensor-facilitated CPS;
- Cybersecurity for sensor-facilitated CPS;
- Advanced complex data analytics for sensor-facilitated CPS;
- Location-based services and applications for sensor-facilitated CPS
- Performance optimization for sensor-facilitated CPS.

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 2000 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.
