Special Issue "Camera Sensors in Smart Cities"
A special issue of Smart Cities (ISSN 2624-6511).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2019
Smart cities have become a reality, as distributed sensing technologies are becoming affordable and flexible enough to allow different types of monitoring applications. Modern urban areas have to deal with critical problems, such as mobility, public security, energy efficiency, and emergence response, fostering the development of smart cities initiatives for more efficient resource management and quality life improvement.
The use of cameras in smart cities can provide multiperspective visual data of roads, streets, squares, buildings, and virtually any area of modern cities, allowing the retrieval and processing of images and videos that can enhance the way the cities' behavior is perceived. Nevertheless, there are still a lot of relevant challenges that have to be treated in order to better support the use of camera sensors in smart cities. In this Special Issue, innovative research papers addressing classical and new challenges of visual data monitoring in smart cities are specially welcome. Emerging applications for camera-based smart cities and Internet of Multimedia Things for urban scenarios are also relevant for this research area and papers covering these subjects should also be submitted.
