Internet of Things (IoT) has achieved adoption in many application domains. The upcoming 5G technology will help to unleash the full potential of IoT by enabling ultra-low-latency and high-bandwidth wireless communication, with vast improvements over the current capabilities of the 4G. Augmented Reality (AR) is a key technology that will facilitate a major paradigm shift in how users interact with data, by visualizing data from a multitude of sensors and overlaying relevant and actionable information over the physical world. 5G will help promote the wide adoption of AR for many applications beyond video gaming. The convergence of AR and IoT in the era of 5G leads to many challenging research directions that can potentially have large impacts on the modern society. Topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel AR techniques and devices
  • IoT communication protocols for AR
  • 5G and its applications in AR
  • 5G-based video transfer techniques for AR
  • 3D reconstruction in IoT environments for AR
  • Real-world Applications of AR in IoT environments
  • Knowledge-based discovery of devices, data and services in the IoT
