Special Issue "Intelligent and Cooperation Communication and Networking Technologies for IoT"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2020).
Interests: IoT, wireless cooperative networks, wireless powered networks, AI-based network optimization and network information theory
IoT has great potential to be employed in various fields including industrial controlling; automatic driving; environmental monitoring; and medical protection, which plays a key role in supporting future smart cities. However, designing efficient IoT systems involves may challenges. For example, more and more sensors will be deployed in IoT systems for sensing and information collection, which will generate a huge amount of data. Such data is required to be transferred over IoT and processed as soon as possible for systems to make decisions. However, due to their limited energy and computing capabilities, it is difficult for sensors to fulfill reliable communications and computing. Besides, for large-scale IoT systems, optimally allocating the limited network sources such as time, frequency, power, and routing paths in order to improve system performances is not an easy task. Fortunately, the recent development of communication and networking technologies including energy harvesting, wireless power transfer, fog computing, cooperative communications, user cooperation, convex optimization, and artificial intelligence may provide efficient ways to help solve these problems. Motivated by these observations, this Special Issue aims to capture state-of-the-art advances in intelligent and cooperation communication and networking technologies for IoT and foster new avenues for research in this area. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Energy harvesting-powered IoT;
- Fog computing and cloud computing for IoT;
- Cooperative communication and routing methods for IoT;
- Green IoT system design;
- Artificial intelligence-assisted IoT systems;
- Resource management in IoT systems;
- Self-organization technologies for IoT;
- Cognitive techniques for IoT;
- New Emerging Applications for IoT.
