More and more sensors have been used in various aspects of transportation science and engineering. Sensor-based monitoring, operation, planning, control, and decision making has been the trend in air, water, and ground transportation systems, for safety, durability, and comfort, as well as environmental sustainability. Various traditional and newly-developed sensors have been used in various aspects of transportation systems for accurate information acquisition, effective monitoring, and optimal decision making.
This Special Issue is devoted to new advances and research results on sensor development, sensor signal processing, sensor based monitoring and decision making in theoretical, experimental and applied transportation systems. The topics in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, sensor design and development for information acquisition in transportation, sensor signal processing in transportation, sensor placement and multi-sensor fusion for transportation, sensors based monitoring and operation, sensors based high-rise structures for transportation, sensor based control and decision making, modelling and analysis of sensors based transportation systems, sensor information processing and software development for transportation, and remote sensing and monitoring for transportation. The applications of various sensor technologies to transportation are also 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 monthly 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.
