Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the advent of new communication technologies such as 5G and 6G and the Internet of Things (IoT and M-to-M), the needs for the development of new, connected, embedded systems have increased. Among these needs, we can identify the development of new architectures of connected sensors, which have experienced unprecedented growth these last few decades. Indeed, sensors that were formerly used as a simple module in a circuit and that allowed measuring a particular physical quantity have today become fully fledged autonomous systems integrating intelligent functionalities of monitoring, self-calibration, and even decision making. We thus find these autonomous devices almost everywhere today, namely in home automation, industrial, aeronautical applications, etc. Therefore, the needs in terms of developing new, high-performance, autonomous sensors that do not require a lot of energy to operate are constantly increasing.

Furthermore, antennas, which are essential components of any wireless communication system, require adaptation for these new architectures and these new communication technologies. Therefore, new antennas incorporating features such as multiple input and multiple output (MIMO), beamforming, and beam steering capabilities that go far beyond what is achievable with conventional antennas need to be developed.

For this purpose, this Special Issue proposes to focus on new architectures of advanced sensor and antenna systems in a broad sense, which will cover the following areas but not be limited to:

  • IoT architectures;
  • Sensor physics;
  • Antenna for sensors;
  • Antenna for IoTs and M-to-M;
  • Connected sensors;
  • Embedded antennas;
  • Low energy sensors;
  • Mmwave antenna;
  • Antenna for 5G and 6G;
  • Energy harvesting;
  • Reconfigurable antennas.

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.
