Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Several systems are essential to autonomous vehicles, including localization, navigation, and obstacle avoidance systems. To be able to implement all of these systems, autonomous vehicles must be equipped with a multitude of sensors (GPS, inertial measurement units (IMUs), radars, cameras, LiDARs, etc.). All of these systems require the development of techniques that extract the relevant information as efficiently as possible. This Special Issue focuses on exploring these techniques for the purpose of their application in autonomous vehicles or advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS). Topics include, but are not limited, to:

  • inertial measurement units;
  • artificial vision;
  • accurate localization;
  • mapping;
  • simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM);
  • LiDAR odometry;
  • navigation;
  • sensor fusion.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
