Special Collection on Smart Objects for the Internet of Things
International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks

Every day the need for objects to be smart, with enough intelligence and sensors to perform required operations, increases. These objects must be able to communicate wirelessly with other nodes or remote centres in their network, exchanging information and receiving instructions in a reliable and secure way. They must be autonomous, capable of managing the energy resources in order to extend their lifetime span. Considered objects may include everything from lightweight sensors to smart-gadgets like smartphones, drones, and wearable devices.

The increased ‘smartness’ of the participating objects is crucial to solve the issues derived from the required cooperation, possible unpredictability and intense mobility. Objects can move in many different ways, covering transportation means that are (i) terrestrial, like cars or trains, (ii) aerial like drones or planes, or (iii) underwater, such as ships. But even static objects should be flexible enough to efficiently handle on-off patterns imposed for energy savings.

This special collection focuses on experiences with the design, implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of novel communication approaches and systems for smart objects in the emerging Internet of Things context. We are therefore seeking original papers empirically addressing key issues and challenges in the mobile smart objects arena.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

	•	App concepts and technologies for different mobile platforms

	•	Communication between mobile devices and cars

	•	Communication for drone coordination

	•	Content Distribution

	•	Data collection, organization and dissemination methods

	•	Data replication protocols in network partitions

	•	Deployment and field testing

	•	Game, entertainment, and multimedia applications

	•	Human-object interaction

	•	Innovative services and applications for mobile devices in vehicles

	•	Mobile service architectures and frameworks

	•	Mobility and handover management

	•	New application scenarios for vehicular communications

	•	Privacy issues and solutions

	•	Protocol design, testing and verification

	•	Security issues, architectures and solutions

	•	Sensor-networks in vehicles

The submitted manuscripts for this special collection will be peer-reviewed before publication.
