Article 1

Resilient Smart Built Environments: Research Directions

Charith Perera and Yasar Majib

Smart Infrastructure is composed of physical and digital Infrastructure. It aims to improve data-driven decision-making and enable the faster and cheaper operation and maintenance (e.g., better whole-life value). As a society, we increasingly depend on 'smart' Infrastructure that is internet-connected and deployed across many sectors around us, such as transportation, energy, water, and, more importantly, buildings.


Article 2

MIMO and IRS: Enablers for Energy Efficient Wireless Sensor Networks

Muhammad Ali Jamshed and Masood Ur Rehman

The commercialization of 5G new radio (NR) will be able to support three types of connectivities with heterogeneous traffic requirements, i.e., massive machine-type communication (mMTC), ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC), and extended mobile broadband (eMBB).


Article 3The Convergence of Technologies to Provide Security on IoT Edge Devices

Carlos Moratelli, Sergio Johann, Everton de Matos, Francisco Assis M. Nascimento, Gabriel Rossi Figlarz, and Fabiano Hessel

The Internet changed to a model where billions of everyday objects are interconnected, the Inter-net of Things (IoT). Since the direct IoT-Cloud model works poorly for a fair share of all applications, it changed to a layered architecture. Thereby, Fog and Edge layers were added to the IoT architec-ture as an alternative to diminish cloud communication and perform faster responses.


Article 4IoT in Smart Cities: Homogeneous Communication Architecture Imperative for the Heterogeneous Applications Environment

N. Kishor Narang

The extensive work done by various global SDOs has comprehensively defined the frameworks & roadmap for future ICT Infrastructures. However, the disruptive paradigm of the Internet of Things has given rise to new aspects in the way humans, machines, and things are going to communicate with each other soon.
