The development of the innovative sensors measuring human movement has revolutionised sport science and exercise programming. Athletes are now better prepared to take on the challenges of sport performance in part due to the richness of data collected through sensors. Sport coaches are also more informed about the requirements of their athletes’ sport performance so that their training programs and testing procedures now more accurately reflect human performance within a sport specific context. It is also clear that the increasing applications of sensors has led to considerable improvements in human performance in areas such as defence science as well as workplace health and wellbeing. The portability of sesnors has made it possible to measure performance within task specific environments so that results more accurately reflect human performance under combat situations (defence science) or other occupational environments (workplace health and safety). Furthermore, the use of sensors has revolutionised learning environments whereby human movemement can be assessed using sensors with the results integrated into educational programs and curriculum. This emerging area of sensor research employs sport science techniques within an primary or secondary educational context to better build the aspirations, understandings and knowledges of the next generation of scientists and researchers.

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. 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.
