Smart cities are regarded as systems to promote people’s quality of life by using advanced information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to improve the efficiency of services and meet residents' needs in urban environments. IoT can be used to enhance quality, efficiency, and interactivity of urban services, as well as to reduce resource consumption and cost. Nowadays, telecommunication companies, IoT companies, research institutions, and universities are to deploy IoT systems across all dimensions of urban services such as smart grid, smart buildings, smart utility, healthcare, environmental monitoring, smart transportation, smart industries, etc. IoT plays an important role in developing advanced techniques and implementing intelligent systems for smart cities.
This Special Issue aims to address the architectures, systems, and applications of IoT for smart cities. It solicits the state-of-the-art theoretical, as well as practical works on a broad range of issues important on IoT for smart cities for researches, developers, and practitioners from both academia and industry.
Topics of primary interest include, but are not limited to:
Architecture design of IoT for smart cites
System design of IoT for smart cites
Applications of IoT for smart cites
Sensing technologies in IoT for smart cities
Embedded systems, computing, and networking technology in IoT for smart cities
Artificial intelligence, advanced human to machine interaction, machine to machine technologies in smart cites
Citizen-centric IoT for smart cities
Data collection, fusion and processing technology, and monitoring system design in smart cities
Information and communication techniques of IoT for smart cities
