Interests: human olfactory interface; odor recorder; odor reproduction; measurement technology; sensor; sensor signal processing
Interests: insect olfaction; olfactory receptor; gustatory receptor; genetic engineering; cell-based biosensor
Sensors for olfaction and taste have been studied for more than three decades, and many researchers proposed various types of chemical sensors and biosensors. Sensors with different characteristics are typically used together as a sensor array in the same manner as biological olfactory systems. Thus, multidimensional data analysis such as pattern recognition has been studied for a long time. The recent topic is deep learning technique for electronic nose. The sensor system, including IoT or cyber physical systems, is also a hot topic. Moreover, many researchers study mobile robots with chemical senses.
In addition to sensing techniques, the device and the method to present olfactory and gustatory information are important. We can manufacture the contents with scents and tastes, such as game, movie, etc. As olfactory and taste displays are relatively new, we have many things to do in that field. Moreover, the combination of sensing with presentation technologies, such as odor recorder, teleolfaction, etc., are expected to evolve.
“Machine Olfaction and Taste” includes both the sensing and presentation technologies of chemical senses. This Special Issue is aimed at representing the latest research of machine olfaction and taste. Contributions to sensor material, device, signal processing, data analysis, robot, display technologies, and their combination related to olfaction and taste are welcome.

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.
