Recently, we have seen a growing interest in the potential use of visible light communications (VLC), which offer new opportunities by simply using white light-emitting-diode (LED)-based lighting installations. LEDs have longer life expectancy, higher tolerance to humidity, and lower power consumption compared with incandescent and fluorescent lights. Recent advances in solid-state technologies have made available highly energy-efficient LEDs for illumination, data communication, indoor localization, and sensing.
This Special Issue therefore aims to put together original research and review articles on recent advances, technologies, solutions, applications, and new challenges in the field of VLC systems.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Light-emitting diode (LED)–Internet of Things (IoT) communications
- High-data-rate VLC for the last-meter access networks
- Optical camera communications (OCC) with VLC
- Line-of-sight and non-line of sight VLC
- Car-to-car and infrastructure-to-car VLC
- VLC for outdoor applications
- VLC for localization/positioning
- Transmitters, receivers, and equalizations for VLC
- Multiuser VLC networking, advance modulation techniques
- Underwater VLC
- Hybrid WiFi/VLC, IR/VLC, and mmW/VLC
- VLC for sensing
- VLC in medical and manufacturing

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 2200 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.
