Special Issue Information

Importance & Relevance of Topic

The principal concern of “Emerging Science” is to review and chronicle major developments in science that are likely to affect its future course. Particularly, we are currently witnessing the result(s) of developments in technologies of the field of IoT and IoV. These have significant implications in various styles. Recent developments in Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Vehicles (IoV), and Blockchain have significantly expanded the scope of applications.

  • The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) enabled the creation of networks of physical devices, such as vehicles, home appliances, water, electricity, and air quality meters, trash deposits and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors and actuators which enable these objects to connect and exchange data.
  • Internet of Vehicle (IoV) technology is referred to as dynamic mobile communication systems that can communicate between vehicles and public networks using Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), Vehicle-to-Human (V2H), Vehicle-to-Cloud Server (V2C) and Vehicle-to-Sensor (V2S) interactions.
  • As a revolutionary technology, Blockchain provides a practical solution for enabling a secure and decentralized public ledger that allows data and transactions to be recorded in a reliable and verifiable way. Such developments include, but are not limited to, non-blockchain types of distributed ledgers; proposals to cyber security, privacy, fungibility and scalability problems in blockchain networks; systems that combine blockchains with other technologies, including IoT, IoV and others.

Aim and Scope

The purpose of this Special Issue is to bring together the scholars that have contributed to the “Internet of Things and Internet of Vehicles” by promoting alternative explanations of “IoT and IoV” applications. The present special issue is pushing forward our knowledge on Emerging topics and practical considerations in IoT, IoV and blockchain. We welcome original, unpublished research addressing any of the above topics or related to the scope of the special issue.


  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Internet of Vehicles (IoV)
  • Blockchain
  • Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN)
  • Cyber Security
