A Special Issue on Open-Source Electronics Platforms: Development and Applications

We are organizing a special issue on Open-Source Electronics Platforms - Development and Applications.

Open-source electronics platforms are becoming very popular in our daily activities. Arduino- and Raspberry-compatible modules have been applied for a wide range of applications from do-it-yourself (DIY) to industrial projects. Using open-source electronics platforms as educational tools for teaching engineering and science at universities is undeniable. Influences of open-source electronics platforms in technological renovations and social impacts have been well recognized.

The aim of this Special Issue is to gather the most recent development and applications of open-source electronics platforms. We invite all papers with novel contributions in principles, development and applications of open-source electronics platforms with, but not limited to, the following topics.
  • Current state of the art of open-source electronics platforms
  • Principles and development of open-source electronics platforms
  • Software frameworks and operating systems for open-source electronics platforms
  • Using open-source electronics platforms to develop modern information systems including IoT, cyber-physical systems, sensor networks, automation, and robotics.
  • Usability of open-source electronics platforms in research and education
  • Hardware platforms
  • Software frameworks
  • Free operating systems
