Special Issue "Embedded Devices in IoT"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: context-aware cyber-physical systems; energy-efficient systems; embedded devices and the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new but very common computing paradigm that has enabled vast enhancements in communication capabilities across a variety of devices, and, thus, has provided significantly improved connectivity properties compared to the traditional systems. One of the main ideas of the IoT is that any physical device or an everyday object can be connected to the Internet with the help of embedded computing devices. These embedded devices are usually small but highly capable in data collection and basic computations; and include sensors, actuators, microcontrollers, etc. Since IoT has led to an important shift from the traditional computing architectures, it also created new problems related to hardware/software design, computational capabilities, real-time task processing, security and privacy of users and their data, etc. There is a need for extensive research on the design, capabilities, and applications of the embedded devices that are widely used in IoT to address the above problems. In this Special Issue, we focus on embedded device usage in IoT.
General topics covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to the following:
- New sensor/actuator design for IoT
- Wireless sensor network design and implementation for IoT systems
- Microcontroller design and performance analysis within IoT applications
- Application-specific hardware designs (e.g., FPGA-based implementations) for IoT
- Hardware–software co-design for IoT systems and applications
- Real-time data analytics using embedded devices
- Efficient and accurate machine learning usage with embedded devices
- Edge computing using embedded devices
- Novel security and privacy methods leveraging embedded device hardware and/or software
- Embedded system design addressing one or more of the following IoT issues: energy-efficiency, resiliency, scalability, longevity, cost, device heterogeneity, and standardization
- Emerging IoT applications using new generation embedded devices

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
