Vehicle navigation is one of the essential functions for self-driving cars and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). To solve localization and navigation problems of self-driving cars and UAVs, wireless sensor network technologies can be exploited. Wireless sensor networks can be used to detect obstacles, pedestrians in the environment, and provide navigation information to unmanned or self-driving vehicles. In this Special Issue, we are aiming to bring together recent technical advances in wireless sensor networks and deep-learning techniques to solve vehicle navigation problems for self-driving cars and UAVs in the topics as follows, among others:
- Wireless sensor networks for vehicle navigation;
- Wireless sensor networks for vehicle localization;
- Wireless sensor networks for road accident detection/warnings;
- Wireless sensor networks for traffic monitoring;
- Deep learning-based approaches for traffic monitoring/driver monitoring/vehicle navigation;
- Sensor data fusion for video navigation;
- Sensor data fusion for traffic monitoring;
- Sensor data fusion for driver monitoring;
- Applications of vehicle navigation.
The Special Issue aims to solve vehicle navigation problems using sensor networks.

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 2000 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.
