Intelligent Sensors

A section of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220).

Section Information

Intelligent sensors utilize advanced signal processing techniques, data fusion techniques, intelligent algorithms, and artificial intelligence concepts to better understand sensor data, for better integration of sensors and better feature extraction, leading to measures that can be used in smart sensing applications.

Particularly in the last decade, there have been significant advances in computing technologies in terms of increased miniaturization, computing power, learning algorithms, and the availability of big data. Such advances are relevant to enable much smarter and self-contained sensors and sensing modalities both distributed and at the edge, i.e., within the sensor.
