Advances in Ubiquitous Sensor Technologies for Building Sustainable Smart Cities

Ubiquitous sensors, devices, infrastructure, and its integrated technologies are building many intelligent solutions for the smart cities. This technology has emerged as a leading innovation enabling new breeds of applications and systems and it uses the real power of computing. Ubiquitous Computing, or Pervasive Computing are interchangeably used for “smart things or u-things” to develop intelligent environment, services and applications. There are three main stages for Ubiquitous systems; sensing, communication and data processing. Sensing and communication technologies are being used in multiple applications for smart cities and it so-called “Internet of Things” (IoT). Data collected from the sensing nodes are stored and processed by smart clouds and “Big Data” technologies. Big data covers storage, processing, analytics and machine learning, natural language processing, data visualization, and other activities according to the requirements of specific application. Scientist are putting lot of efforts for building smart network infrastructure and trying to improve the performance on which many of the intelligent solutions both in industry and scientific domains depends. For example, the industrial internet of things (IIoT) has now become increasingly more pervasive in the industry, such as health, agriculture, manufacturing, logistics, oil and gas, energy, and other utilities.

As the traditional network and data management techniques are unable to meet the needs of future data-intensive systems due to large amount of data generation through the devices every day. So, there is a great demand to further explore the intelligent solutions and building better, reliable and efficient networks. The main challenge is to propose intelligent solutions to simultaneously meet the needs of next generation networks and computing technologies, by using the distributed sensor networks and integrating the distributed cloud in place of traditional clouds. We require new collaborations between computing technology experts and networking communities to develop intelligent Ubiquitous computing solutions and efficient data computing technology exploration. This special is an effort in the direction of exploring future Ubiquitous technologies and intelligent solutions for smart cities.
