Humans and animals have developed acute senses, which enable them to make fast responses to environmental stimuli. For example, a human fingertip can perceive vibration with the amplitude of 0.1 micron, comparable to the diameter of a COVID-19 particle, and a particular breed of dog can sniff out an object 5 kilometers away. Nonetheless, our sense functions are subject to physiological limitations, and new sensors and sensing technologies can augment our capabilities. Many of these technologies have been applied to medical systems. Machine vision systems today can detect discrete changes occurring at the frame rate of over 10 KHz, and medical imaging techniques such as X-ray or ultrasound enable visualization of internal organs, extending doctors' abilities.
With the recent advancement of micro/nano technologies, the current status of sensors available for cyborg and bionics systems are being challenged. We look forward to receiving innovative papers for the Special Issue on Super Sensor, and new sensing results on bionic systems, cyborg systems, and hybrid systems are also welcome.
