Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Smart systems integrate sensing, actuation, signal processing, and control in order to make decisions and create a smart environment. Smart system is the next generation of computing and information system, combining artificial intelligence, machine learning, cyber-physical systems, edge/cloud computing, pervasive/ubiquitous computing, big data analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to provide real-time networked information and control, which considerably contributes to the development of the future IoT.

Due to the large diversity of IoT devices and technologies, the major challenges in smart systems are: how to design and build integrated smart systems? how to use computing technologies efficiently and effectively? This Special Issue aims at the theory and practice of smart systems and IoT technologies and welcomes original contributions and review papers that are relevant to the following potential areas:

  • Computing Models and Algorithms for Smart Systems
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Smart Systems
  • Platforms for Smart Systems
  • Smart Communication and Networking Technologies
  • Big Data and Smart Systems
  • Biometrics and Smart Systems
  • Cloud/Edge/Fog Computing Technologies for Smart Systems
  • System Design and Architecture for Smart Systems
  • IoT and Industrial IoT Technologies for Smart Systems
  • Interdisciplinary Technological Approaches and Solutions for Smart Systems
  • Smart System Applications (e.g., smart security and surveillance systems, smart transportation systems, smart agriculture, smart healthcare systems, unmanned systems, smart energy management, smart logistics and supply chain management systems)

A Joint Optimization Strategy of Coverage Planning and Energy Scheduling for Wireless Rechargeable Sensor Networks

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have the characteristics of large-scale deployment, flexible networking, and many applications. They are important parts of wireless communication networks. However, due to limited energy supply, the development of WSNs is greatly restricted. Wireless rechargeable sensor networks (WRSNs) transform the distributed energy around the environment into usable electricity through energy collection technology. In this work, a two-phase scheme is proposed to improve the energy management efficiency for WRSNs. In the first phase, we designed an annulus virtual force based particle swarm optimization (AVFPSO) algorithm for area coverage. It adopts the multi-parameter joint optimization method to improve the efficiency of the algorithm. In the second phase, a queuing game-based energy supply (QGES) algorithm was designed. It converts energy supply and consumption into network service. By solving the game equilibrium of the model, the optimal energy distribution strategy can be obtained. The simulation results show that our scheme improves the efficiency of coverage and energy supply, and then extends the lifetime of WSN. Full article

Group Key Management Scheme for Multicast Communication Fog Computing Networks

In group key management, the implementation of encryption often fails because multicast communication does not provide reliable linkage. In this paper, a new group key management scheme is proposed for multicast communication in fog computing networks. In the proposed scheme, any legal fog user belonging to a fog node will be able to decrypt a ciphertext encrypted by a secret shared key. The shared secret key is divided into key segments. In the rekeying operation process, each key segment is split into two factors with its shared production mechanism. The key updates are required to belong to the fog provider or the group management device. Fog users will have independent key segments unchanged. Then, the cost, the message of rekeying, and the dependence on credible channels will be decreased. This method can resist collusion attacks and ensure backward security and forward security, even if the number of users leaving is larger than the threshold value. Our scheme is also suitable for untrusted affiliate networks. Full article
