Special Issue Information
In recent decades, it is evident that the technological advancements in computing and the great innovation achievements in telecommunications have drastically altered the world. More specifically, the Internet of Things (IoT) provides new challenges and possibilities in cities, leading to the concept of smart cities. Smart cities are more sustainable, efficient, motivate the information sharing and provide a better quality of living. The primary goal of a smart city is to create an urban environment that yields a high quality of life to its residents while generating overall economic growth. In order to achieve these goals, smart cities employ a wide range of technologies including sensor networks, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, machine learning, machine-to-machine communication and big data. In fact, sensor technologies are essential for cities because they present a quintessential and operational feasible environment.
Although the area of wireless sensor networks has been thoroughly examined in the literate, the problem of addressing the wireless sensor network applications for smart cities still has a wide range of open issues and challenges. This Special Issue is aimed at addressing issues that are involved in connectivity, heterogeneity of infrastructure, data processing, management, energy waste, security and privacy. This includes:
- Wireless sensor network applications for smart cities;
- Novel architectures, protocols and algorithms for wireless sensor network applications for smart cities;
- Communication platforms and access technologies;
- Theoretical modelling and frameworks for wireless sensor network applications for smart cities;
- Case studies, real solutions, designs, and implementations of smart cities;
- Security and privacy frameworks for wireless sensor network applications for smart cities;
- Innovative techniques for wireless sensor network security applications for smart cities;
- Environmental challenges for smart cities;
- solutions for smart transport and traffic;
- Solutions for smart mobility and parking;
- Solutions for smart street lighting infrastructure;
- Solutions for urban infrastructure management;
- Solutions for waste management;
- Integrated renewable solutions based on big data analytics.
