Today’s progress on various grounds of software-defined networks and infrastructure, virtualization and digital twins, mobile computing, wireless controllers’ communication protocols, and artificial intelligence (AI) including deep learning methods has opened the door widely for the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial IoT (IIoT), Internet of Everything (IoE), and cyber-physical systems (CPS). It has also enabled the intelligence to be distributed at various levels, such as at sensing or controlling devices, at the network of devices’ edge, and at the fog or cloud level. It has given us more options to deal with intelligent system design when considering the various factors of reliability, security, cost, and performance. The emergence of 5G and future 6G networks has fostered the integration of heterogeneity in each solution. Mobile devices such as smartphones, wearables, wireless controllers, and others have helped in tracking portable objects, interacting with mobile things (vehicles, scooters, UAVs, etc.), and monitoring the status or health of living subjects like humans or animals. The challenge remains in the utilization of these advancements in facilitating a collaborative environment that offers harmonic and timely interaction between the physical processes and their related cyber backbone. Tactile Internet and autonomous vehicles are examples here.
This Special Issue aims at original and innovative solutions, ideas, experiences and latest research results and findings on systems, components, or applications of mobility monitoring and management and within, but not limited to, the context of IoT, IIoT, IoE, and cyber-physical intelligence.

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. Future Internet 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.
