We invite submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject of “IoT and Sensor Networks in Industry and Society”. In the last decade, the deployment of IoT and sensor networks have made a strong impact on many aspects of society. The seamless integration of technologies to perform sensor data generation, transmission, and processing have enabled the development of smart solutions such as Smart Cities, Smart Agriculture, and Smart Transports. As the business environment is being increasingly digitized, traditional industrial processes are rapidly reshaping to build the fourth industrial revolution, namely Industry 4.0. This will pave the way for the use of ICT as the foundations of Society 5.0, a super smart human-centric society in which both economic development and resolution of societal challenges are achieved.
This Special Issue encourages high-quality unpublished contributions on recent advances in IoT and sensor networks towards the implementation of Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0. Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:
- Human-centric society and quality of life improvement;
- Artificial intelligence and robots for healthcare and ambient assisted living;
- ICT for infrastructure inspection and maintenance;
- Modeling, planning, and operating industrial processes in smart manufacturing;
- IoT data analysis for smart agriculture;
- Big data analytics and social media mining;
- Safe and secured society in both cyber and physical spaces;
- Smart retail and sales management;
- Connected and autonomous vehicles;
- IoT and sensor networks for environmental monitoring.
