Special Issue "Smartphone-Based Sensors for Posture, Movement Analysis and Human Activity Recognition"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018)
Over the past decade, smartphones have become the focus of intense research interest due to three critical features: (1) billions of people worldwide regularly carry a smartphone since their price is affordable, (2) smartphones contain multiple sensors offering similar precision to those found in specialized devices and are almost continuously connected to the Internet, and (3) developers have low-cost and seamless access to smartphone platforms supporting the efficient development and distribution of applications.
As a result, smartphones have emerged as an efficient and effective measuring device widely used as a key research instrument. For example, using the embedded sensors it becomes possible to actively measure specific movements that an individual is asked to perform or attempt to infer from measurements obtained passively patterns of daily life. These tasks require methods and techniques that enable the interpretation of sensed data into movements, postures or activities over time.
This Special Issue solicits original research on the use of smartphone sensors for the estimation of posture, activities and movements. Authors are encouraged to submit original research articles, works in progress or surveys on the following topics of interest include (other relevant topics will also be considered):
- Measurement algorithms and their application for the interpretation of higher level context
- Movement analysis of specific body parts
- Posture analysis and related issues
- Serious games based on movement and sensor readings
- Objective interpretation of data obtained from smartphones sensor analysis
- Healthcare applications including injury prevention, rehabilitation and medication compliance

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 1800 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.
