Abstract

The papers in this special section focus on smart edge computing and the Internet of Things (IoT). The evolution of the (IoT) is changing the nature of edge-computing devices. Availability of novel sensor interfaces, efficient digital low power processors, and high-bandwidth low-power communication protocols have generated a perfect storm within the IoT ecosystem. Next generation IoT end-nodes have to support, in place, an increasing range of functionality: multi-sensory data processing and analysis, complex systems control strategies, and, ultimately, artificial intelligence. These new capabilities will enable disruptive innovation in wearable and implantable biomedical devices, autonomous insect-sized drones, miniaturized devices for environmental sensing and continuous monitoring of buildings, industrial machinery, power grids. As a result, we witness a paradigm shift towards computationally demanding tasks on tiny form-factor devices at extreme energy efficiency.
