Today’s global evolution has made it possible to return technology to its original purpose, which is serving in the best way possible human beings, especially in the currently most widespread societal structure: the city. High-performance and cutting-edge technologies are literally everywhere and intensively used to assist and ease each aspect of the citizen’s life, thus giving birth to one of today’s most challenging, promising, and cross-disciplinary research topics: the smart city.
Smart cities are strongly related to and correlated with the profile of their citizens (e.g., behavior, need, preferences, etc.). Regardless of the application purpose (e.g., traffic regulation, economy, energy, health, etc.), a key component of smart cities is gathering inhabitants’ data via sensors of many types and their integration into all kinds of devices (e.g., cars, mobile phones, buildings, clothes, etc.). Data and their intelligent management are the backbone supporting the smart city concept and its realization.
In this Special Issue, we welcome applications focusing on data acquisition, use, and service delivery for the materialization of the smart city concept with an emphasis on the smart traffic axis (e.g., jam avoidance, safety, pollution reduction, city organization, etc.). We encourage works making an original and out-of-the-box use of deep learning, artificial intelligence, city microsimulation, bio-inspired algorithms, special hardware, etc.
We welcome both research and review article submissions. If you are willing to contribute to this Special Issue, we would very much appreciate receiving via email the tentative title and abstract of your contribution.

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 2200 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.
