Cyber Physical Systems (referred to as CPS) are next next-generation smart systems, which integrate computing, communications, and control systems as a unification. In CPS, physical and software components are deeply intertwined, involving transdisciplinary approaches, merging the theories of cybernetics, mechatronics, and design and process science. The key techniques of CPS include physical/mechanical systems, embedded systems, sensors and actuators, computer network and human machine interface. The joint behavior of the “Models” and “Systems” of sensors in CPS is critical. Additionally, the “Applications” of sensors in CPS include smart grid, autonomous automobile systems, medical monitoring, process control systems, robotics systems, and automatic pilot avionics. Therefore, when we evolve towards CPS from the traditional wireless sensor networks (WSN), we will need novel approaches for “Models”, “Systems” and “Applications” of sensors in CPS.
Many sensors in CPS solutions are already available today: from standardized solutions that are widely applicable, but further limited in flexibility, to proprietary solutions tailored to a specific vertical market and that are not interoperable.
The aim of this Special Issue is to serve as a single-track forum for reporting the recent advances in all aspects of sensors in cyber-physical systems from theory, tools, applications, systems to testbeds. This Special Issue aims to explore the vast spectrum of these technologies with original and review articles that focus on the recent advances in the development of modeling and implementation for CPS. In addition, applications of sensors in CPS in transportation, energy, water, medical, robotic systems, social awareness, emergency management and other challenges for the 21st century are all welcome.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- New emerging models for sensors in CPS
- New emerging systems for sensors in CPS
- New applications and testbeds for sensors in CPS
- physical/mechanical systems for sensors in CPS
- Embedded systems for sensors in CPS
- Sensors and actuators for CPS

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 2200 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.
