- Special Issue of Applied Sciences journal (IF 2.217)
With the IoT (Internet of Things), we can obtain much more information more easily than ever before, and control devices in a much more seamless manner. However, compared to conventional systems, IoT systems have distinct characteristics and require multiple problems be solved in order to make the systems efficient and usable. These distinct characteristics include the heterogeneous nature of the connected devices, the huge number of devices in the network, the lightweight security system, the fact that such devices may have different communication protocols and message characteristics, various security levels, diverse management authorities and policies, etc.
As an example, the main purpose of Fog computing is to provide IoT/cloud services, which were originally provided by the system server, directly in the vicinity of the things. By doing so, not only is the amount of data transmitted to the system server reduced, but latency and privacy problems can also be solved in certain application areas. Fog/Edge computing is just one of many attempts proposed to solve the problems involved in the IoT.
It is quite evident that software plays a key role in overcoming the obstacles mentioned above. For this reason, it is meaningful to discuss what kinds of software solutions are needed for better IoT systems.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
•Fog/Edge computing middleware for IoT systems
•Efficient IoT system frameworks from a software perspective
•Software for reliable IoT systems in hostile surroundings
•Efficient IoT software for specific application areas (i.e., Healthcare, Smart city, Transportation, etc.)
•Efficient software for managing a large number of heterogeneous devices/communication protocols for IoT systems
•Efficient security-related software for IoT systems
•Performance monitoring or Performance enhancement software for IoT systems
•Other topics related to the issue
