Special Issue "Sensor Systems for Motion Capture and Interpretation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2015).
Interests: wearable computing, pattern recognition, ubiquitous computing, biomedical engineering, gesture recognition
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This special issue addresses sensors for motion capture connected with sensor data interpretation using signal analysis and pattern recognition methods. Motion sensing and interpretation has gained wide interest for various areas, including context awareness, augmented reality, human computer interaction, and applications, e.g., in sports, rehabilitation, gaming, and many others. Depending on the application, motion sensing is often done using specific sensor designs and sensor modalities optimized for use at the human body, on objects, or embedded in the environment.
This special issue invites novel contributions that couple motion sensor design, integration with signal processing and machine learning methods to acquire and interpret sensor data continuously or from spot measurements. Contributions will utilize real-world evaluations, or highly insightful and realistic simulation approaches. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Novel motion sensor design coupled with appropriate signal processing
- Unobtrusive motion sensing and motion pattern interpretation.
- Movement performance analysis in real-life settings.
- Sensor systems for gesture recognition, virtual motion representation, and augmented reality and their application.

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 2000 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.
