Sensors-based systems are nowadays an extended technology for many markets due to the great amount of their possibilities in collecting data from the environment and processing then for different purposes. We can find a typical example in the wireless sensor devices, where the outer temperature, humidity, luminosity and many other parameters can be acquired, measured and processed in order to build useful and fascinating applications that contribute to the human welfare. In this scenario, the processing architectures of the sensors-based systems play a very important role. The strong requirements for many applications (real-time processing, low-power consumption, reduced size, high-precision algorithms, efficient and secure communications, and many others) do necessary the research on advanced architectures of Microprocessors and Systems-on-chip to design and implement in a successful product. In this sense, there are many challenges, trends and open possibilities in this area that it is necessary to know.
According to the above-mentioned, this special issue seeks to explore the last advances in the Microprocessors and System-on-chip area applied to the sensors field. In this special issue, we seek original, high quality articles, clearly focused on theoretical or practical aspects of the sensors-centric Microprocessors and System-on-chip, including but not limited to the topics shown below.
