Special Issue "Sensor Data Fusion for IoT and Industrial Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2019
All devices and systems that we use nowadays have many different sensors. With these new technologies, we can collect all the information obtained by them and use all this data to enable more reliable and accurate decision-making without human intervention. Data fusion is an effective way for the optimum utilization of large volumes of data from multiple sources. This combination of multiple data sources usually yields more relevant, accurate, and useful information than is provided when using an individual data source. Computational intelligence plays a key role in the process of integrating and analyzing this information, since it is essential to the mathematical methods and techniques used for this.
There are some emerging areas that would greatly benefit from sensors data fusion such as Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, deep learning for data fusion, smart cities, and many other industrial applications.
Internet of Things (IoT) is the new revolution of the last decade, being one of the most relevant trends in the software industry. The number of objects connected to IoT is growing progressively. The use of IoT implies a fusion between the digital and the physical world, so millions of things or devices of all types and sizes are interconnected between them. This combination of data can be also used in many interesting industrial applications.
This Special Issue encourages authors from academia and industry to submit new research results from the use of multiple sensor data fusion to generate IoT environments or other industrial applications. The Special Issue topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- IoT environments using sensor data fusion
- Industrial applications using sensor data fusion
- Mathematical algorithms for sensor data fusion
- Principles and techniques for sensor data fusion
- Data preparation techniques for analysis in sensor data fusion

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.
