Special Issue "Air Quality and Sensor Networks"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2020).
Interests: environmental sensors; sensor networks; sensor effects; aerosol sensors; photonic sensors; electronic sensor systems
New sensor technologies allow trace gas and particulate matter detection and classification at an unprecedented resolution, enabling us to better understand our environment. At the same time, inexpensive sensors are appearing on the market that measure a wide range of air quality parameters. In combination with wireless sensor network technologies, these technologies offer the potential to map air quality in cities, control low-emission zones, or identify pollution sources in- and outdoors. On the other hand, such low-cost sensors suffer from cross-sensitivity to other pollutants and stability issues. Therefore, performance metrics for low-cost standards are of the utmost importance to supplant or supplement conventional regulatory air quality monitors.
The Special Issue “Air Quality and Sensor Networks” aims to collect a comprehensive set of research advances and use cases in the field.
This Special Issue includes but is not limited to the following topics:
- Performance standards of low-cost sensors;
- Reliability, cross-sensitivity, and stability of environmental/air quality sensors;
- Gas and vapor sensors;
- Soot and particulate matter sensors;
- Exhaust gases and secondary particles;
- Applications of wireless sensor networks and AQ monitoring such as traffic control, city toll, pollution poor route;
- Indoor air quality;
- Source appointment and characterization using sensor networks and novel data analytics;
- Ambient stationary and indoor deployment, sensor siting;
- Data visualization, data analytics;
- Field campaigns;

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.
