The rapid development of sensor technology in the last few years has led to a new generation of smart sensors that combines a sensing device with processing functionalities and communication capacities. The integration of this new type of sensors in the field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has encouraged researchers to focus their works on this field with great results. Embedded systems, remote sensing, software engineering, artificial intelligent, edge computing, or even communication technologies are some of the research areas involved. The integration of smart sensors offers new opportunities for UAV applications such as pollution detection, agriculture, forestry, photography, surveillance, disaster monitoring, etc.
To promote smart sensors and UAV research, the aim of this Special Issue is to review theoretical and experimental works dealing with the application of smart sensors on UAV-based systems. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, smart sensors integrated into UAV platforms, sensors for remote sensing, artificial intelligence applied to UAVs, data processing for UAV and sensor information, applications for smart sensors, and UAV systems.
Contributions may focus on, but are not limited to:
- UAV remote sensing;
- Smart sensor technology;
- UAV Intelligent sensing;
- Onboard embedded systems;
- Sensor data processing;
- Edge/fog computing in UAV contexts;
- UAV design;
- UAV and multi-UAV applications based smart sensors;
- MEC-based UAV applications;
- Dynamic UAV missions based on smart sensing;
- Software engineering for UAV applications;
- Privacy, security, and trust for UAVs;
- Human–UAV interaction based on smart sensors;
- Resources allocation, offloading, and tasks scheduling in UAV context;
- Novel trends to extend UAV remote sensing.
Authors are invited to submit their work including original research, articles, case studies, or surveys on the subject.

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 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. Electronics 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 2200 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.
