The Internet of Things (IoT) brings new trends and promising technologies to traditional Internet industry and society. Full intelligentialization would be the ultimate goal of the Internet of Things. Realizing the full potential of the Internet of Things requires solving serious technical and business challenges, such as identification of things, organization, integration and management of big data, the effective use of knowledge-based decision systems, mobile communications and mobile computing, privacy and security issues, heterogeneous data processing and software modeling for IoT. Varieties of different technologies have been emerging in the last few decades, such as RFID, sensors technologies, NFC, Bluetooth, Zigbee, WiFi, WiMAX, smart devices networking protocol, which lead to the high complexity of the IoT.
The Special Issue aims at bringing together research efforts, focusing on the developments of big data modeling and analytics, knowledge-driven and semantics-centered methods, smart mobile computing, self-managing models for pervasive services, cloud computing and techniques for the handling of various aspects of Internet of Things. In this Special Issue, we solicit high-quality contributions with consolidated and thoroughly evaluated application-oriented research results in the area of the Internet of Things that are worthy of archival publication in Sensors. It is intended to (i) provide a summary of research that advances the Internet of Things, and (ii) serve as a comprehensive collection of some of the current state-of-the-art technologies within this context. The Special Issue will collaborate with the international conferences: IIKI2016 (http://business.bnu.edu.cn/IIKI2016/) and WASA2016 (http://wasa-conference.org/WASA2016/).
