Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the progress of smart cities, the issues of fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control have become very critical for them. Modern transportation, smart buildings, advanced energy management systems, smart girds, and intelligent healthcare bring more comfort to citizens and enhance life quality. However, the new technologies enlarge systems, increase complexities, and lead to infrastructures, which are prone to various types of faults. As a result, a large number of researches have been conducted to improve the reliability of smart cities. The main aim of this special issue is to investigate advanced fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control systems for smart cities, making them safe and reliable against different faults. The editorial goal is to collect new ideas in this area and highlight the new contributions and future directions for designing secure smart cities.
