Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the field of sensors applied to the edge, non-functional constraints such as execution time, memory capacity, and energy consumption are a significant challenge for designers of embedded systems. New applications are being proposed that integrate an increasing variety of functionality into everyday objects, imposing several additional requirements on embedded system designers, as follows:

  • Increased computing workloads, elaborating and fusing multiple sensor data, even by advanced machine learning techniques;
  • Reduced power consumption, allowing for smaller batteries and renewable power sources;
  • Faster interaction with the environment, necessitating a high performance in data processing that is often reached by hardware implementations.

As an example, the physical dimensions and power consumption of embedded sensors for the Internet of Things are frequently of interest. However, the need for small systems does not prevent higher demands for functionality and speed. Simultaneously, designers must respond to a growing need for more powerful edge systems capable of managing vast fleets of connected devices while running resource-intensive algorithms such as sensor fusion, feedback control, and machine learning. Developers must grasp the nature of embedded systems architectures and strategies for extracting their full performance potential in this environment, as well as embedded design in general.

This Special Issue invites researchers to contribute original research, case studies, and reviews that address topics related to designs and applications of sensors that are based on embedded systems.

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 2600 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.
