Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern manufacturing systems are ever more developing as cyber–physical systems that are able to collect data from the surrounding physical environment and to use them in order to make autonomous decisions using smart functionalities.

Such systems increasingly rely on the employment of heterogeneous sensors to collect data from the manufacturing process, product and system that can be utilized for different purposes such as the condition monitoring of machines, processes and tools; predictive maintenance; quality control; resource management; etc.

To effectively take advantage of these sensors in view of the realization of smart manufacturing systems, artificial intelligence techniques such as knowledge-based systems, machine learning and other cognitive approaches can be applied.

In this Special Issue, original and review articles on the application of “Sensor Applications for Smart Manufacturing Technology and Systems” are solicited with reference to the various sectors of advanced manufacturing technology and systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the smart application of sensors for the following areas:

  • Smart Manufacturing Technologies
  • Manufacturing Process Monitoring
  • Tool Condition Monitoring
  • Quality Control
  • Manufacturing System Maintenance
  • Manufacturing System Modelling, Design, Planning and Control
  • Energy and Resource Efficiency
  • Cognitive Systems for Production Engineering
  • Digital Factory
  • Cyber–Physical Production Systems
  • Cloud-Based Manufacturing
  • Industry 4.0

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.
