Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Autonomous driving benchmarks for object detection have primarily focused on local regions and benign conditions, yet much more diversity of environment and conditions will be required for these vehicles to reach the public market. Some detection benchmarks, such as the Waymo and CADC datasets, include precipitation and winter conditions but still rely primarily on vision and lidar as the primary sensing modalities. This Special Issue seeks papers that directly address issues related to autonomous driving in adverse conditions, from the sensor, dataset, or algorithmic side, in order to shine a light on the myriad challenges that remain in robust object detection in all weather conditions and driving environments.

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 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 2400 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.
