Sensors SI "Smart Sensor Technologies for IoT"
Extended deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 March 2021.
The recent development in wireless networks and devices leads to
novel services that will utilize wireless communication on a new level.
It is possible to see a lot of efforts and resources invested to
establish new communication networks that will support massive machine
to machine communication and Internet of Things (IoT). In these systems,
various smart and sensory devices are assumed to be deployed and
connected enabling streaming of large amounts of data.
New trends in mobile services can be represented by smart
services, i.e. completely new spectrum of context-aware, personalized,
and intelligent services and applications. Variety of existing services
already utilize information about the position of the user or mobile
device. Position of mobile devices is in a lot of applications achieved
thanks to the use of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) chips
that are integrated into all modern mobile devices (smartphones).
However, GNSS is not always a reliable source of position estimates due
to multipath propagation and signal blockage. Moreover, in foreseen IoT
applications the use of GNSS chips integrated into all devices might
have a negative impact on their battery life. Therefore, alternative
solutions for position estimation should be investigated and implemented
in IoT applications.
Additionally, smart mobile sensors and devices could be able to
fulfil an astonishingly wide range of demands of users and providers.
One of the reasons behind the wireless device development is the
ever-growing computing power together with the reduction of energy
consumption and improved communication capabilities of devices.
In order to process a large amount of data from sensors, further
investigation of mobile and dynamic cloud computing solutions is also
envisioned. Implementation of new services will be with high probability
based on the application of cloud services. This, however, produces
additional challenges in such areas as management, security, technical
solutions, infrastructure modelling, mobile devices support, and many
This special issue is addressed to researchers and engineers in
both academia and industry sectors to exchange ideas, share experiences,
and report original works about all aspects of the above-stated philosophy.
We invite investigators to contribute original as well as review
articles on research and development in areas of smart sensor
technologies and IoT. These include solutions that are designed for the
smart mobile devices covered by wireless networks and solutions that are
not directly designed for such use but have the potential for it.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Sensing technologies supporting IoT services
Sensors data processing and fusion
Sensors data supporting smart devices localization
Sensors data retrieval, storage and processing with Cloud and Fog
Context and location-aware applications based IoT
An impact of recent advances in wireless technologies on IoT
Multimodal sensors enabling smart IoT
Smart cities, smart environment and smart grid
Mobile services based on sensor technologies and cloud computing
Secure sensor and IoT device management using Blockchain techniques

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 2000 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.
