Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The purpose of this Special Issue is to solicit advances in the fundamental research, development of new and existing technologies, and innovative industrial applications of sensors for “Internet of Things” (IoT).  Ranging from on-body bio-sensors, to instrumented smart homes, to sensor systems for industrial use and manufacturing, to area-wide networks of environmental sensors, sensors and sensor systems are at the core of all IoT-based activities. The data generated from sensors is an essential building block in IoT for driving the decisions and actions that create value and that enable new capabilities.  The Special Issue will specifically address the requirements, development, implementation, and operations of sensors and sensor systems. Contributions that cover any sensor technologies that are applicable to IoT are welcome. Reviews must offer a critical overview of the state-of-the-art on fundamentals, technologies, and applications pertinent to sensors for IoT.

Topic areas include, but are not limited to, are the following:

  • Agriculture
  • Automotive and transportation
  • Healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices
  • Industrial IoT
  • Maritime IoT
  • Smart cities and public safety
