Image and video sensing are essential tools for exploring and understanding the hidden world beneath the waves, yet the complex aquatic environment has prevented them from being widely deployed. Recent advances in underwater vision sensing technology have enabled researchers to develop efficient and cost-effective systems for underwater imaging. Underwater vision sensing systems can be used for a variety of applications, such as underwater surveillance and tracking, monitoring of marine habitats and species, navigation and mapping, and exploration.
The goal of this Special Issue is to introduce recent advances in underwater vision sensing systems, which involve autonomous underwater vehicles, sonar imaging, optical imaging, 3D reconstruction, automatic driving devices, sonar system optimization, the Internet of Things, security facilities, navigation systems, computer vision devices, acoustic materials, acoustic technologies, and so on. In this Special Issue, we expect to publish papers with theoretical and practical innovations in underwater vision sensing systems involving underwater optical and sonar imaging, underwater sensor design and development, image and signal processing for underwater vision sensing, image and signal analysis for object recognition and tracking, machine learning and artificial intelligence for underwater vision sensing, underwater navigation and localization, underwater communication and networking, applications of underwater vision sensing in autonomous underwater vehicles, and any other possible applications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The implementation of deep learning in underwater vision systems;
Underwater 3D reconstruction;
Remotely operated vehicle;
Autonomous underwater vehicles;
Underwater stereo vision;
Image and signal processing in underwater vision sensing systems;
Underwater sensing and detection;

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
