Special Issue "Data, Signal and Image Processing and Applications in Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Interests: signal & image processing and applications; study and development of devices & systems for friendly smart environments; development of multimedia-based teaching/learning methods and tools, with particular emphasis on the use of the Internet
With the rapid advance of sensor technology, a vast and ever-growing amount of data in various domains and modalities is readily available. However, presenting raw signal data collected directly from sensors is sometimes inappropriate, due to the presence of, for example, noise or distortion, among others. In order to obtain relevant and insightful metrics from sensors signals’ data, further enhancement of the sensor signals acquired, such as the noise reduction in the one-dimensional electroencephalographic (EEG) signals or color correction in the endoscopic images, and their analysis by computer-based medical systems, is needed. The processing of the data in itself and the consequent extraction of useful information are also vital and included in the topics of this Special Issue.
This Special Issue of Sensors aims to highlight advances in the development, testing, and application of data, signal, and image processing algorithms and techniques to all types of sensors and sensing methodologies. Experimental and theoretical results, in as much detail as possible, are very welcome. Review papers are also very welcome. There is no restriction on the length of the papers.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Advanced sensor characterization techniques
- Ambient assisted living
- Biomedical signal and image analysis
- Signal and image processing (e.g., deblurring, denoising, super-resolution)
- Signal and image understanding (e.g., object detection and recognition, action recognition, semantic segmentation, novel feature extraction)
- Internet of things (IoT)
- Machine learning (e.g., deep learning) in signal and image processing
- Radar signal processing
- Real-time signal and image processing algorithms and architectures (e.g., FPGA, DSP, GPU)
- Remote sensing processing
- Sensor data fusion and integration
- Sensor error modelling and online calibration
- Smart environments and smart cities
- Wearable sensor signal processing and its applications

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.
