As the process of urbanization expands and develops, smart cities are desired where modern technologies can be leveraged to manage urban resources more intelligently, which include space, energy, and manpower, thereby improving the quality of life for citizens. Wireless sensor networks, as a form of digitalizing infrastructure, provide a promising solution for smart-city construction following the “Sense–Analyze–Actuate” paradigm. The “Sense” step gathers multi-modal sensing data from sensors tha have been deployed all around a city, which are then transmitted through wireless spectrums. The “Analyze” step aims to improve the authenticity of these aggregated sensing data, ensuring the data quality and security. Additionally, the final “Actuate” step mainly explores the potential correlations and applications from large amounts of sensing data to promote the intelligence of smart cities. For this step, optimization calculations and artificial intelligence are adopted to understand the data, which result in city-management decisions being made in a centralized or decentralized manner.
This Special Issue of Sensors aims to collect state-of-the-art research papers on topics including, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Advanced wireless sensing technologies and smart-sensor designs for smart cities;
- Advanced sensing data storage, transmission, and reasoning techniques for smart cities;
- Optimized sensing data quality, security, and privacy management for smart cities;
- Novel smart city sensing system designs and applications.

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 2400 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.
