IEEE Sensors Journal – Special Issue on
Sensing Technologies for Intelligent Urban Infrastructures

Urbanization growing globally has brought in a need to rethink how future cities and infrastructures will look like. A future urban infrastructure should be able to cater for diverse socio-economic needs relating to aspects such as energy use, environment and natural resources, health and well-being, safety and transportation. In particular, sensing technologies will play a critical role in realizing smart and sustainable urban infrastructures, for instance for monitoring and intelligent decision-making, sensor-driven actuation of urban control processes, as well as driving big urban sensor data solutions.

Potential topics for contributions to this special issue may include (but are not limited to):

• innovative sensor technologies
• sensor processing techniques
• sensor architectures and interfaces
• connected sensors
• sensor-driven analytics and services
• Big Sensor Data solutions

These topics should be addressed in relation to intelligent urban infrastructure domains such as:
• Energy monitoring and management: Sensing solutions in smart grids for reliable and efficient power distribution, monitoring and management of in-building and outdoor facilities;
• Environment and natural resource management: Sensing environmental parameters for advanced monitoring of air and water quality, and disease spreads;
• Safety: Sensing technologies for emergency response, crowd-management, outdoor infrastructure lighting for better illumination and safety;
• Transportation: Sensors for traffic flows and optimized traffic management, sensing technologies for connected vehicles for sustainable transportation solutions.
