The Agile Wireless Internet of Things (AWIoT) is one component of a range of IoT applications including smart homes, industry 4.0, smart environments, smart grids, e-health and ecommerce transactions.

One of the key challenges for AWIoT is coordinating spatially distributed static or mobile devices that are subject to operating system constraints, disturbances in transmission media, defects in infrastructure, network failures, changing traffic patterns and the need to maintain quality of service.

AI can be used to optimizes AWIoT. Deep learning, ML, neural networks and evolutionary algorithms can facilitate data prediction and performance improvement and help manage the huge volume of data flowing from sensors, network devices, social media and many other sources.

This issue looks at how AI can be used in AWIoT. We seek research papers that look at these and other topics:

  • Spatial and temporal solutions based for AWIoT
  • Data management for AWIoT
  • MAC and routing architectures
  • Dealing with spatial and temporal challenges for edge computing
  • Managing infrastructure failures
  • Deep neural networks in AWIoT
  • Optimization and learning for traffic patterns
  • Security and privacy challenges in deep reinforcement learning
  • Using AI to manage decentralized data
  • Adaptive and automated resource management strategies
  • Network interface control
  • AI in fog computing
  • Smart Grids Identification security attacks using Dynamic Software computing
  • Risk assessment for embedded motion sensor devices
