The recent rapid improvement of Internet of Things and wireless sensor networks technologies has allowed a wide diffusion in many different applications.
Usually, the cost of accessing the sensors and, therefore, the cost for the replacement or recharge of batteries is high. In these cases, the main specification in the design of the network is low power consumption in order to keep the network alive for a long time.
The smart node of the WSN consists of sensors that acquire data, a data processing system, wireless network management, energy storage, and energy management. The design of a low-power wireless sensor network requires the joint optimization of the parameters of the complete system, from the hardware of the sensor up to the network and application layer.
The objective of this Special Issue is to present the state-of-the-art of the design methodologies of low-power wireless sensor networks in different application fields.
The Special Issue includes but is not limited to the following topics:
- Energy harvesting for WSN
- Energy storage for WSN
- Wearable energy storage
- Power management techniques for low energy IoT devices
- Low-power IoT sensors
- Low-power wireless routing protocols
- Low-power wireless network topologies
- Low-power WSN for structural health monitoring
- Low-power WSN for smart cities
- Low-power wearable wireless sensors for healthcare

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.
