Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the help of technical advances in information and communication technology (ICT), the Internet of Things (IoT) has been building up smart cities which are envisioned to improve the quality of life for the civilians with ICT. The applications (e.g., environmental monitoring, utility monitoring, asset tracking and localization, and so on) of the IoT in smart cities are diverse and continually spreading in everyday life, as well as workspaces such as offices, factories, and so on. In many applications, IoT devices gather physical data with sensors and send the data to an edge gateway or fog system. Depending on the application requirements, different IoT network standards (e.g., LR-WPAN, LPWAN, Wi-Fi, and so on) provide IoT connectivities with different devices in the network. In some cases, devices in the network can process and analyze the data to obtain useful information and provide earlier decision making at the IoT device or edge node level. Obviously, the cloud system can manage the received data from the field for further processing. To realize smart cities, research and development on every technical aspect of IoT systems are required.

This Special Issue focuses on the latest research, application, and adoption of IoT networks in smart cities from the perspective of protocols and applications, requiring a different level of reliability and real-time packet delivery. In such a context, this Special Issue invites contributions in the following topics (though without being limited to them):

  • Diverse IoT applications in smart cities;
  • Protocols and technologies for connected cars and smart transportation;
  • Testbeds and experimental results in smart cities;
  • Localization and tracking;
  • Data processing and analysis/machine learning and AI;
  • Edge and fog computing in smart cities;
  • IoT network protocols and standards.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2200 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.
