Special Issue "Video Analysis and Tracking Using State-of-the-Art Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 October 2017)
Object detection, identification, recognition, and tracking from video is a fundamental problem in the computer vision and image processing fields. This task requires an object modelling and motion analysis, and various types of object models have been developed for improved performance. However, a practical object detection and tracking algorithm cannot avoid a number of limitations including: Object occlusion, unstable illumination, object deformation, an insufficient resolution of input video, limited computational resources to meet the video rendering speed, to name a few. Recent developments in state-of-the-art sensors widen the application area of video object tracking by solving the practical limitations.
The objective of this Special Issue is to highlight innovative development of video analysis and tracking technologies related with various state-of-the-art sensors. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Detection, identification, recognition and tracking objects using various sensors
- Multiple camera network or association for very wide range surveillance
- Development of non-visual sensors, such as time-of-flight sensor, RGB-D camera, IR sensor, RADAR, LIDAR, motion sensor, and acoustic wave sensor, and their applications to video analysis and tracking
- Image and video enhancement algorithms to improve the quality of visual sensors for video tracking
- Computational photography and imaging for advanced object detection and tracking
- Depth estimation and three-dimensional reconstruction for augmented reality (AR) and/or advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)

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 1800 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.
