Smart Homes are the building blocks of Smart Cities under the theme of Internet of Things. In the most recent decade, advances in remote detecting innovation frameworks have led to an expansive number of different sorts of “Smart Homes”. The Smart Home is an integration system made of about three important entities: Firstly, the physical components (smart sensors and electronic gadgets); Secondly, the communication system (significant wireless advances used to actualize the frameworks using Z-Wave, Insteon, Wavenis, Bluetooth, WiFi, and ZigBee); Thirdly, the information processing through artificial intelligence programs (machine learning and data mining). Numerous proportional names are utilized for the savvy home framework, e.g., home observation, home computerization, assisted living framework, wise home etc.
The current advances in home computerization contribute towards achieving risk-free sheltered living as well as comfortable real life settings for the residential home environment. The Ubiquitous Monitoring systems might be more readily adopted by the residents if the monitoring systems were designed and developed as a custom-made tool. Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is one of the brilliant home applications, which contains interoperable ideas, items, and administrations, which coordinate new data and correspondence advances and home situations with the aim of increasing the personal satisfaction of individuals in all phases of life.
This Special Issue aims to publish original, significant and visionary papers describing scientific methods and technologies that improve efficiency, productivity, quality and reliability in all areas of wireless home automation and Ambient Assisted Living. This Special Issue will provide a broad platform for publishing the many rapid advances that have been achieved to date in the area of wireless home automation and Ambient Assisted Living. In this Special Issue, we would like to focus on understanding what should be done to improve humans’ sensing awareness. Submissions of scientific results from experts in academia and industry worldwide are strongly encouraged.
Contributions may include, but are not limited to:
Intelligent sensors and actuators for homes, buildings and infrastructures
Real-time control and optimization
Distributed, networked and collaborative systems
Big data and real-time data processing
Wireless Communication protocols and implementation
Modelling and analysis of physical components and the environment
