Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
A Fourth Industrial Revolution is currently building on the Third—the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. Internet of Small Things (IoST) represents an emerging era of networking that connects a variety of common appliances to one another, as well as with the rest of the Internet, to vastly improve our lives. Industrial and research organizations expect that tens of billions of daily life objects can communicate with each other in the near future for the realization of a hyper-connected society that is called the Internet of Small Things (IoST).
This Special Issue offers an overview of ongoing research on innovative RFID application techniques, and brings together cutting-edge research work on security and privacy problems with respect to technological, behavioral, legal, and cultural aspects. We anticipate that innovative RFID application techniques will soon be adopted to large networked systems, and we believe that the role of the IoST becomes very important in this context. This Special Issue aims to highlight the latest research results and advances on various innovative RFID processing algorithms, architectures, and technologies for innovative RFID applications systems, sensor data fusion, and processing at node side (client) or host side in the IoST, and especially their applications in the IoT environment. It will include related topics to demonstrate pioneering work in this field, to investigate novel solutions, and to discuss the performance analysis. Contributions containing novel and original findings in this field are welcome.
Submitted papers may focus on original work in innovative RFID sensor data fusion and processing at node side (client) or host side in IoST, power-efficient implementation of innovative RFID protocols, algorithms for the IoST, and secure application case studies. Both theoretical and technical papers are welcome. Original contributions showing practical approaches are also welcome.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Software architecture of an embedded system for innovative RFID applications
- Fast and complexity-awareness algorithms for real-time innovative RFID applications
- Signal optimization techniques for innovative RFID applications
- Privacy issues, protocols, and algorithms for IoST, RFID
- Privacy and security metrics and quantification in innovative RFID sensor networks
- Security issues, protocols, and algorithms for innovative RFID, IoST
- Sensors data fusion and processing at node side (client) or host side in innovative RFID, IoST
- Power-efficient implementation of new protocol and algorithms for innovative RFID, IoST
- Secure application case studies
- Standardization initiatives
- Architectural performance evaluation of system
- Big data analysis technique on smart surveillance systems and application in innovative RFID, IoST
