Remote non-contact sensing of material properties, displacement, vibration, and distance, based on microwave and wireless technologies, has attracted a great deal of interest from both academia and industry in recent years. Many sensing devices and systems have been developed for applications such as indoor tracking, monitoring of vital signs, vehicle navigation, remote control, biomedical material characterization, spectrometry, and structural monitoring. Solutions from bench-top systems to silicon on-chip integration approaches have been widely reported, covering a broad frequency range, from a few MHz to hundreds of GHz and above. While the fast development of non-contact sensing technologies has shown great promise in improving the quality of life of human beings and operation efficiency of industry, there are still technological challenges to be solved and new advancements to enhance the use of limited radio spectrum are needed.
We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue in all aspects regarding various non-contact sensing applications. Both reviews and original research articles on system, hardware, or processing algorithms are welcome. Reviews should provide an up-to-date overview for the state-of-the-art technologies, such as non-touch vital sign detection, wireless localization, non-contact material characterization, non-invasive diagnosis, or any other non-contact sensing topics that have experienced significant advancement in the past decade. Original research papers should focus on new approaches, or solve an important problem in remotely measuring physical information or material properties. If you have ideas to discuss before submission, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to receiving your manuscript.

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.
