Special Issue on Sensors and their Applications for Industry 4.0

Published 08 April, 2021

The Industry 4.0 revolution has already begun, and the benefits of using modern sensor technologies in industry are becoming increasingly evident. The industrial sensor market size is expected to grow from USD 18.2 billion in 2020 to USD 29.0 billion by 2025.

Modern sensors are a vital component of Industry 4.0 as they allow for the reading and sensing of measurement properties that can predict failure, track levels and enhance manufacturing efficiencies. Various types of contact and non-contact sensors including level, electric current, humidity, pressure, proximity, heat and flow sensors, are among the most widely used.

This special issue will feature state-of-the-art research addressing the broad challenges involved in developing sensors for Industry 4.0. We are seeking original, unpublished papers that are not currently under review by any other journal, magazine or conference. Our goal is to build a community of authors and practitioners to discuss the latest ideas and research directions.

Topics Covered:

  • Sensors for the smart manufacturing environment
  • Wearable sensors for Industry 4.0
  • Sensing various ongoing manufacturing processes
  • Sensors for healthcare
  • Impact of sensors on manufacturing efficiency
  • Smart and digital production systems
  • Automatic information systems
  • Internet of Things
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Applications and case studies on modern and upcoming sensor technologies

Important Deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 15 December 2021
