Special Issue "Wearable Sensors and Systems in the IOT"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 November 2019.
Wearable smart devices are now widely used to determine various physical parameters at any point in time. The proliferation of such devices has been driven by the acceptance of enhanced technology by the general public. Despite the exponential growth in wearable sensors, they have limitations, especially regarding the broader aspects of their commercialized use, that need to be rectified to further enhance the field of wearable electronics.
Consideration of the Internet of Things (IoT), which connects smart objects around the world, has increased predominantly over the last two decades. By 2020, it is estimated that there will be over 50 billion IoT-connected devices, thus provoking questions regarding security and big data handling. This Special Issue aims at presenting the issues and challenges faced by the currently-proposed IoT-based systems along with state-of-the-art research on the commercialisation of current systems.
The topics of interest for this issue include:
- Wearable sensors
- Flexible sensing systems
- Flexible devices
- Sensing technologies
- Measurement of physiological parameters
- Autonomous wearable sensors
- Textile-based wearable sensors
- Printed electronics
- Wearable IoT based systems
- Energy harvesting
- Energy efficient wearable systems
- Health care wearable sensing
- Integrated wearable sensors
- Multifunctional wearable sensing systems
- IoT-based systems
- Security in IoT-based systems
- Heterogenous IoT-based systems
- Big data handling in IoT-based systems
- Smart homes and cities
- Visualisation techniques
- Artificial Intelligence algorithms
- Hardware Architecture for IoT-based systems
- Data processing in IoT
- Wireless energy harvesting
- Cloud computing in IoT-based systems

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.
