Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wearables devices are expected to increasingly permeate our world, applied as they are to a very large variety of applications, including leisure, health, communication, security or work. In the next few years, wearables are expected to disrupt most business sectors, and it is expected that the number of wearable shipments will exceed 200 million by 2021.

Multiple sensors are embedded in wearable devices. Sensors are mainly included for tracking information on the user’s physical activity and physiological parameters, but additional sensors are also included for radio-communications and other purposes. This advanced complex sensory system enables wearables to be a source of invaluable crowdsourced data, where sensor fusion may bring innovative applications in many fields (engineering, telecommunications, computer science, eHealth, Internet of Things, Sensor Networks, etc.).

This Special Issue encourages authors from academia and industry to submit new research results about technological innovations and novel applications for wearable devices, with special interest in positioning. The Special Issue topics include but are not limited to:

  • Ambient assisted living;
  • Artificial Intelligence;
  • CloudEdgeFog computing;
  • Computer vision;
  • Collaborative positioning;
  • Crowdsensing;
  • Cryptography;
  • Cybersecurity;
  • D2D communications;
  • Data fusion;
  • eHealth solutions;
  • Internet of Things (IoT);
  • Low-latency and industrial applications;
  • Machine learning, deep learning;
  • Mesh sensor networks;
  • Mobile computing;
  • Software design;
  • Supporting architectures and platforms;
  • Systems on Chip (SoC);
  • Testing and evaluation protocols, strategies, and standards;
  • Wireless indoor positioning, localization, and navigation.

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.
