Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The automation industry includes acquisition, transmission, calculation, and other links, and the Internet of Things (IoT) includes comprehensive sensing, reliable transmission, intelligent processing, and other related concepts. The two are closely related, and automation industry has now become one of the main potential fields of application of IoT technology. At the same time, the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and other related technologies has provided new ideas and challenges for IoT technology. The convergence of AI and IoT moves data analysis to the IoT device itself, thus eliminating any latency in the processing. IoT edge devices can not only sense environmental data but also recognize the surrounding information and evolve the IoT into a smart IoT through deep learning and other AI technologies. Therefore, there is an urgent need to research more advanced IoT technologies that will facilitate further development in the field of the automation industry.

The topics of the Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Edge/fog computing;
  • Intelligent IoT;
  • Wireless sensor networks;
  • Industry IoT;
  • Mobile communication;
  • 5th generation mobile communication technology;
  • Big data;
  • Automation technology.
