Special Issue in Sensors: Sensors and Robot Control
Several automated and autonomously operating systems require a network of spatially dispersed sensors to obtain reliable information for their operation. Sensor networks enable better coverage and real-time sensing in complex environments that cannot be reliably achieved by a single sensor.
Examples of use cases can be found in industrial applications such as process automation or robotic cells that operate in complex environments. Furthermore, such problems are often met in serving robotic applications for solving tasks related to control, localization and navigation of delivery robots, house-keeping robots, or in autonomous mobile robots, such as automated guided vehicles in warehouses, self-driving vehicles, agriculture, research and rescue missions, and so on.
This Special Issue on sensor networks welcomes contributions on recent developments that include but are not limited to the following topics: new sensor networks developments, innovations in theory, algorithms, reviews or interesting applications from environment awareness, object tracking, localization, SLAM, control tasks in automation, robotics, mobile robotics, and autonomous system design.

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.
