Over the last few years, there has been an increasing interest in the development of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) for a variety of applications, such as structural health monitoring, smart homes and buildings, agriculture and environmental monitoring, among others. However, the widespread adoption of WSN technology has been limited partly due to sustainability and maintenance cost concerns. One important concern is the need of eventually performing battery replacement for tens or even hundreds of sensing devices scattered over a large-area field. Therefore, there is a necessity to explore different approaches for the extension of battery life in sensor nodes. This Technologies Special Issue is focused on addressing energy harvesting, energy conservation, and wireless power transfer approaches to the development of sustainable and cost-effective wireless sensor nodes. Potential topics include (but are not limited to) ultra-low-power hardware architectures and communication protocols for sensor nodes, wireless-power-transfer-enabled sensor nodes, novel energy harvesting transducers, energy harvesting circuits for sensor nodes, predictive energy harvesting techniques, energy-saving and energy-aware battery management techniques, and low-power machine learning algorithms for wireless networks.

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. Technologies 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 1400 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.
