Sensors are integral components of modern infrastructure, scientific research, and transportation systems. Bridges, buildings, vehicles, and other devices now depend on complex sensing and imaging systems to relay information and interact with the world. Autonomous vehicles, for example, rely on a multi-sensor suite to safely navigate a vehicle through urban and rural areas in a variety of meteorological conditions. Sensor systems are also critical for environmental monitoring and to help protect human health and safety. These expanding fields require ongoing collaboration between researchers, government agencies, and industry companies as these sensors and their relevant data products evolve.

In order to keep up with the latest techniques and application areas, Future Sensing Technologies will cover topics that are especially significant to the industry today. Leading experts will deliver invited presentations on the latest advancements and industry trends. If you have something to contribute, we encourage you to participate. Papers are solicited on advanced sensing, related technologies, and application areas for industry and research.

Submit your latest work and plan to join your colleagues for this exciting event. Papers are solicited on advanced sensing, related technologies, and application areas for industry and research and topics related to the current COVID-19 pandemic and other health and safety technologies are encouraged.
