Special Issue: “Recent Advance in Future IoT for Intelligent Society and Industry”

Theme and Scope

Internet of Things (IoT) technology gradually become part of life. The combinations and integrations of emerging technologies, i.e. 5G, AI, and Blockchain, will direct the future development of IoT industry. Thus, dynamically interactions within network are essential to the connections of intelligent machines. The collaborations of digital twins require the provision of sensor data, which contained pervasive cyber-physical systems consisting of physical objects. Hence, this special issue devoted a demand to reflect future applications and significant research challenges, and focuses on the discussion on research results of IoT technologies plunged into intelligent society and industry. Therefore, the special issue would refer to more practical and useful approaches in, e.g., healthcare, safety, retail, financial, energy audio-visual, or legal industries, which are closely connected to future developments of IoT. Original submissions regarding all areas related to advances on applications, methods and approaches envisioning to discourse the new challenges in IoT technologies are applicable.

Topics appropriate for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Industrial IoT services and applications,
  • IoT and Fin-tech applications,
  • IoT and healthcare applications,
  • IoT and fitness applications,
  • IoT and commercial management,
  • IoT and energy management,
  • Big data analysis in the IoT
  • Block chain technologies in the IoT,
  • Intellectual property matters regarding recent advances on IoT,
  • Security, privacy, and dependability issues,
  • Voice, Image and Video Processing in the IoT

Papers submitted to the special issue should contain original materials not published in nor submitted to other journals.
