Introduction to the Special Issue: Applications of Internet of Things
AbstractThis editorial introduces the special issue, entitled “Applications of Internet of Things”, of Symmetry. The topics covered in this issue fall under four main parts: (I) communication techniques and applications, (II) data science techniques and applications, (III) smart transportation, and (IV) smart homes. Four papers on sensing techniques and applications are included as follows: (1) “Reliability of improved cooperative communication over wireless sensor networks”, by Chen et al.; (2) “User classification in crowdsourcing-based cooperative spectrum sensing”, by Zhai and Wang; (3) “IoT’s tiny steps towards 5G: Telco’s perspective”, by Cero et al.; and (4) “An Internet of things area coverage analyzer (ITHACA) for complex topographical scenarios”, by Parada et al. One paper on data science techniques and applications is as follows: “Internet of things: a scientometric review”, by Ruiz-Rosero et al. Two papers on smart transportation are as follows: (1) “An Internet of things approach for extracting featured data using an AIS database: an application based on the viewpoint of connected ships”, by He et al.; and (2) “The development of key technologies in applications of vessels connected to the Internet”, by Tian et al. Two papers on smart home are as follows: (1) “A novel approach based on time cluster for activity recognition of daily living in smart homes”, by Liu et al.; and (2) “IoT-based image recognition system for smart home-delivered meal services”, by Tseng et al.
