Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Physical security has been critical to national security and public safety. It ensures the defence and protection of a nation (including its citizens, businesses, and institutions) against threats to their well-being via access control and surveillance. Smart sensing technologies, underpinned by resource-rich sensors and artificial intelligence (AI), connect physical security to the digital world.

The data generated from various sensing devices (such as Infrared Sensors, Motion Sensors, Sound sensors, Radar sensors, Satellite, Optical sensors, Ultrasonic sensors, Chemical sensors, Magnetic sensors, etc.) and other sources (such as video footage, audio records, access control logs, social media, police records, etc.) can be correlated and analysed by AI systems to drive the growing sophistication of physical security and build a safer nation. Besides, packing sensors with AI could be used to minimise the threat of malicious activities to digital assessts.

This Special Issue is addressed to applications of smart sensor technologies for all types of physical security.

Application of sensing technologies in national border security
Application of sensing technologies in public safety, including road traffic monitoring, crowd tracking, crime prevention, etc.
Application of sensing technologies in industrial security, including access control, intrustion detection, safe manufacturing, etc.
Autonomous sensor-assisted physical security systems, such as autonomous security robots, natural disaster management using multi-sensor UAV, etc.
AI-driven sensed data correlation and analysis for phyaical security
Surveillance data analytics using machine learning
Verifiable sensor-based physical security

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 papers will be 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 2200 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.
