Special Issue in Sensors: Visual Sensor Networks for Object Detection and Tracking
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are becoming ubiquitous and have many applications, such as surveillance, health care, and intelligent transportation systems, including vehicular networks. Finding the location of mobile nodes is an important task, which, however, faces a number of challenges. These are due to signal propagation effects (such as multipath, shadowing components, and correlations in the measurements).
This Special Issue calls for both theoretical and practical oriented works in different domains of localization for indoor and outdoor environments. Particularly, GSM-based localization of single and multiple nodes with applications to Intelligent Transportation systems are welcome. Scalable algorithms, able to deal with large scale networks and massive data, are one area that is central for this issue. Routing algorithms, suitable for large scale sensor networks and development of efficient and reliable protocols, are also welcome. Additionally, the smart vision-based multi-objects detection, localization mechanisms, inter-domain cooperation for tracking, and high-level interpretation scheme of context/situation information will be discussed for smart camera networks and personal sensor networks.
Original contributed papers and technical review papers are welcome for this Special Issue.

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.
