Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Everyday, wireless sensors are becoming more obiquitous due to their reduced installation and manitanence costs as compared to their wired counterpars, and the possibility to install them on moving parts that do not allow wiring. The Internet-of-Things provides these sensors with cloud connectivity and are being used succesully in industrial and civil applications for infrastructure monitoring and predictive maitanence.More challenging is their use in control and automation applications, commonly referred as Networked Control Systems, where low latency and reliable data transmission and reception is needed. This Special Issue intends to present the most recent advances in this context from different angles such as novel control algortihms that are robust against unreliable communication, multiple sensors and actuators smart scheduling, wireless protocols for control (WirelessHART, ISA100, MIMO WI-FI, 5G), virtual sensors, and distributed estimation and control, both from a theoretical and a practical/industrial perspective.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
