Wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSANs) are becoming the emerging
networking infrastructure for cyber-physical systems as WSANs offer
numerous advantages beyond traditional communication networks. A wireless
sensor and actuator network is the integration of embedded computing
devices, sensors, actuators, and wireless communication mechanisms. WSANs
operate in a closed “sense-think-act” loop of environmental data gathered
by sensors, then processed by embedded computing devices to issue
decisions, and wirelessly transferred actuators to make changes to the
environments. The closed loop enables WSANs to sense and perceive,
interact, and manipulate the physical world directly without human
operation, providing great potential for our daily-life applications.

The aim of this Special Issue is to gather the most recent research results
of wireless sensor and actuator networks. We invite all papers with
theoretical and experimental contributions within, but not limited to, the
following topics:

   - Current state of the art of WSANs
   - System design and integration in WSANs
   - Embedded hardware and software for WSANs
   - Sensory data gathering and processing in WSANs
   - Signal processing in WSANs
   - Throughput optimization of WSANs
   - Delay and jitter of WSANs
   - Routing protocols of WSANs
   - Energy maximization of WSANs
   - Mobility in WSANs
   - Deployment and exploration of WSANs
   - Reliability of WSANs
   - Information security in WSANs
   - Applications in WSANs
   - Constrained optimization of WSANs
   - Soft-computing techniques applied for WSANs
   - Control engineering applied for WSANs

Instructions for submission:
