In recent years, the techniques of Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile communication have been developed to detect human and environment information (e.g., geo-information, weather information, bio-information, human behaviours, etc.) for a variety of intelligent services and applications. The three layers in IoT are sensor, networking, and application layers. For sensor and networking layers, the rise of mobile technology advancements (e.g., wireless sensor networking, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, smart mobile device, and Long Term Evolution (LTE)) has led to a new wave of machine-to-machine (M2M), machine-to-human (M2H), human-to-human (H2H), and human-to-machine (H2M) communications. For the application layer, several IoT applications, which include energy, enterprise, healthcare, public services, residency, retail, and transportation, have been designed and implemented to detect environmental changes and send instant updates to a cloud computing server farm via mobile communications and middleware for big geo-data analyses. For instance, on-board units in cars can instantly detect and share information about the geolocation of the car, speed, following distance, and gaps with other neighboring cars. While the area of IoT applications and mobile communication is a rapidly expanding field of scientific research, several open research questions still need to be discussed and studied. This Special Issue will solicit papers on various disciplines of IoT. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- IoT Applications of Agriculture
- IoT Applications of Energy
- IoT Applications of Enterprise
- IoT Applications of Finance
- IoT Applications of Healthcare
- IoT Applications of Industry
- IoT Applications of Public Services
- IoT Applications of Residency
- IoT Applications of Retail
- IoT Applications of Transportation
- Sensing Techniques for IoT
- Communication Techniques for IoT
- Middleware Techniques for IoT
- Data Analysis Techniques for IoT
