Smart Antennas and Intelligent Sensors Based Systems: Enabling Technologies and Applications

Description

The growing communication and computing capabilities in the devices are enlarging the connected world and improving the human life comfort level. The evolution of intelligent sensor networks and smart antennas has led to the development of smart devices and systems for real-time monitoring of various environments. The demand of smart antennas and intelligent sensors significantly increases when dealing with multiuser communication system that needs to be adaptive, especially in unknown adverse environment. The smart antennas based arrays are capable of steering the main beam in any desired direction while placing nulls in the unwanted directions. Intelligent sensor networks integration with smart antennas will provide algorithms and interesting application to collect various data of environment to make intelligent decisions.

The aim of this special issue is to provide an inclusive vision on the current research in the area of intelligent sensors and smart antenna based systems for enabling various applications and technologies.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Analysis and design of smart antennas for wireless communication
  • Smart antennas based adaptive beamforming and direction of arrival estimation
  • Adaptive null steering using smart antennas
  • Detection and correction of faulty antennas in smart arrays
  • MIMO systems for mobile communication
  • Practical applications of cognitive radioand intelligent heterogeneous sensor networks
  • Smart antenna approaches in underwater sensors
  • Smart wearable antennas and intelligent sensors
  • Intelligent sensors for smart home and smart cities
  • RFID based objects localization and tracking
  • Smart antennas and sensors for active and passive targets localizations
