Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Human–robot interaction is one of the most important topics today. This kind of cooperation needs a special set of sensors or even sensor networks. Some time ago, we could not even imagine that situations from science-fiction movies would become part of our daily life. For instance, biometrics and its sensors, through which we can be recognized without any login or passwords, or novel sensor-based safety systems in intelligent houses are all based on sensors networks and Internet of Things procedures. The main problems with all these solutions are connected with analyzing data safety (especially when we are dealing with personal information) as well as with sensor failures. The second difficulty is especially dangerous in the solutions on which human life depends—for example, gyroscopes in aircrafts. When such sensors are broken, the pilot does not know where the horizon is, which can easily lead to a crash. Recently, significant improvements in these fields have been observed, and further experiments are still being planned or taking place already. However, some novel approaches are still needed—particularly, searching high-level results in shorter time and with lower computational complexity.

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 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.
