Monitoring engineering systems to identify when a failure has occurred and determine its nature, location, and severity is a current approach designed to increase the operational safety of machines and structures. In the age of Industry 4.0, this approach is more topical than ever. Cyberphysical systems must allow for self-assessment, which involves physical measurements, their transformation into digital information, and autonomous decision-making. Global control methods, based on vibration analysis, are most suitable for this purpose, because sensors occupy fixed positions and can be placed where humans themselves find it difficult to reach.
In recent decades, research has been connected to various fields such as advanced sensor technologies, measurement techniques, signal processing methods, and statistical decision-making algorithms to design procedures to assess the condition of machines and structures.
This issue will include papers that address all aspects related to fault detection and identification, considering sensors, measurement techniques, signal processing, and classification algorithms. Original contributions that address both theoretical and experimental issues are welcome, but also review articles on specific topics within the scope of this issue are welcome.

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 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.
