Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

We are in an era of highly intelligent environments, such as smart cities, homes, healthcare, and transportation systems, combinations of cyber-physical systems (CPSs) realized using the recent advanced technologies and working together to provide intelligence or smartness. Smart consumer electronics systems (smart CE) play a critical role in facilitating intelligent environments by improving quality of life, creating new markets, creating new products, and creating new industry/research paradigms. The recent technological convergence of artificial intelligence Internet of Things (AIoT), sensor devices, cloud services, blockchain, and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) using them has created new demands and opportunities for various applications of smart CE. In particular, the increasing number of heterogeneous AIoT, sensors, cloud services, and demanding wireless communication in their integrated systems bring about several traditional research problems and new innovative research questions related to smart CE. Moreover, the interactions between human and non-human systems based on recent AR/VR technologies are consistent and allow a non-trivial set of intelligent interactions per system in smart CE. This Special Issue aims to collect intelligent IoT/sensor devices, context-aware interactions, cloud services, resource management, security, human–computer interaction, and integration of multiple systems that support innovative interactions in smart CE. Accordingly, this Special Issue will bring together researchers in both industry and academia in highlighting the appropriate current and future directions in these areas. High-quality, original research papers covering key issues and topics of smart CE will be considered for publication.

Topics for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

  • Human-centric context management for interaction in smart CE;
  • Intelligent IoT/sensor management for advanced (mobile) ubiquitous applications for smart CE;
  • Intelligent IoT/sensor applications and middleware support for smart CE;
  • Privacy, security, and trust management of smart CE;
  • Intelligent IoT-based blockchain technology and applications for smart CE;
  • Blockchain and information security systems for smart CE;
  • Distributed algorithms and intelligent network optimization for smart CE;
  • Measurements from experimental techniques for smart CE;
  • Middleware and applications of cloud services, fog computing, as well as edge computing for smart CE;
  • Prototypes, testbeds, and real-world deployments of intelligent systems for smart CE;
  • Smart AR/VR interaction for smart CE;
  • AR/VR devices and technologies integrated with IoT/sensors for smart CE;
  • Immersive haptic interaction for smart CE;
  • Reasoning and learning techniques for human-centric interaction in smart CE;
  • Machine learning and data science in/for smart CE;
  • Hardware and software design of smart CE
  • Application and case studies in smart CE

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure performed on a person experiencing cardiac arrest to manually preserve brain function until spontaneous breathing and blood circulation can be restored. If performed timely and properly, it can improve the survival rate of a person experiencing cardiac arrest. The promotion of CPR has always been an important task for countries around the world. Countries around the world often hold relevant study camps and seminars to improve the public’s awareness of CPR. On the basis of this rationale, this paper proposes an interactive teaching aid kit for CPR that uses a CPR manikin and tutoring software to facilitate CPR learning among trainees. The CPR manikin is equipped with sensors that determine whether the CPR steps are performed correctly. Data from the sensors are sent to the tutoring software through wireless transmission. The software provides video demonstrations and textual instructions concerning the standard CPR procedure. In this software, the interactive interface displays real-time information about the trainee’s CPR process, such as information on the CPR step being performed and the number of chest compression and breaths given. Thus, this teaching aid kit allows trainees to learn CPR without an instructor. This system may enable CPR to become a readily learnable skill for the general population. Full article

Today, more than ever, the popularity of decentralized payment systems has risen, creating an outbreak of new cryptocurrencies hitting the market. Unique websites have been staged for each cryptocurrency, where information and means for mining cryptocurrencies are available daily. People visit those cryptocurrency websites either from desktop or mobile devices. Thus, the impulsion for appropriate promotion of cryptocurrency websites and customer factors affecting it rises. The above process increases cryptocurrency organizations’ website visibility, raising the need for customer relationships and satisfaction optimization concerning organizations’ supply chain strategy. Research data were collected from 10 well-known cryptocurrency websites, regarding mobile and desktop devices, in 180 days, regarding on-site web analytics. Therefore, a model consisting of three stages was applied. Starting phase of the model pertains to statistical and regression analysis of cryptocurrency web analytics, followed by Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping and Agent-Based Model deployment. Throughout this study, methods for promoting cryptocurrency websites can be deduced from assessing specific website metrics and device preferences. Research results indicate that web analytics give a clearer image of customer behavior in cryptocurrency websites and, therefore, provide opportunities for further website optimization through increased web traffic and digital reputation.
