World urbanization is an important process: it is predicted that by 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will be urbanized. This phenomenon creates enormous social, economic, and environmental changes, which provide opportunities to use resources more efficiently. Furthermore, considering the looming problem of the...
The increasing urbanization level of the world population has driven the development of a smart city geographic system, conceived as a fully connected wide area characterized by the presence of a multitude of smart devices, sensors, and processing nodes aimed at distributing intelligence into the city. At the same time, the pervasiveness of wireles...
Smart cities represent rich and dynamic environments in which a multitude of smart mobile devices (SMDs) interact among them by sharing data. SMDs require from fast access to online services, but they offer limited computing capabilities and battery lifetime. SMDs make frequent use of computation offloading, delegating computing-intensive tasks to...
The evolutionary trends of the Information Society have lead to the definition of the so-called Smart City, an environment characterized by the interaction of several heterogeneous technologies aiming at providing unprecedented services and efficiency. The Smart City is one of the most challenging scenarios for the Internet of Things (IoT) applicab...
The Smart cities applications are gaining an increas-ing interest among administrations, citizens and technologists for their suitability in managing the everyday life. One of the major challenges is regarding the possibility of managing in an efficient way the presence of multiple applications in a Wireless Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) environme...
A smart city scenario based on an efficient wireless network allows users to benefit from multimedia services in an ubiquitous, seamless and interoperable way. In this context Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) and Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets) are viewed as infrastructures providing together a key solution for the major facing problems: the former al...
Three local elastance-resistance models of the left ventricular (LV) systolic function are compared starting from LV pressure and aortic flow curves measured on dogs at different afterloads. All three models, characterized by different elastance time-behaviors during relaxation, predict a decrease of the elastance and an increase of resistance for...
World urbanization is an important process: it is predicted that by 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will be urbanized. This phenomenon creates enormous social, economic, and environmental changes, which provide opportunities to use resources more efficiently. Furthermore, considering the looming problem of the pandemic, limiting contact between people in tight environments has become one of the major problems facing cities, where space, resources, and transport are increasingly shared. In this context, advanced technologies as big data, IoT, and artificial intelligence are largely used to cope with ever-growing towns and with problems related to the phenomenon of hyper urbanization, to enhance the organization of urban services, reduce costs and resource consumption, and increase contact between citizens and governments. In other words, advanced technologies make towns and cities become "smarter", solving problems related to the organization of a society in which a large number of people share the resources of cities, such as spaces, services, and public places. Smart city applications are developed to manage urban flows and allow for real-time responses. This Special Issue is intended to provide a forum for academic researchers and technical professionals to exchange their recent works on technological advancements. Topics of interest for publication in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to smart city-related applications of big data, IoT and AI, simheuristics, operational research, and 5G.
