Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With this big evolution in technology and the huge amount of data transferred and traveling around the global Internet, a demand beyond automation has appeared in this world. The new demands focused on the ability of machines to be more smart and dependable in making decisions without human interference. Controlling many venues (health, education, power, etc. ) in our life based on the data generated and collected from several sources and machine algorithms have become an essential part of this digital world. Based on all of that, the Internet of Things (IoT) has appeared as a new branch of science to merge several technologies such as automation, machine learning, networking, big data analysis networking, and cloud computing to facilitate machine-making decisions without human interference. 

The aim of this Special Issue is to attract qualified contributions in the area of IoT when it is applied to smart cities. This contribution includes, but is not limited to:

  • Internet of Medical Things (IoMT).
  • IoT in smart home and smart city applications.
  • IoT for modern vehicle technology, autonomous systems, and self-driving.
  • Machine learning techniques and deep learning solutions for IoT technologies.
  • Internet of Things for engineering for real word applications.
  • IoT in cryptography and blockchain technology.
  • IoT for aviation and delivery drone systems.
  • IoT in power-saving technologies.
