The prospect of IoT in developing countries is huge, ranging from agriculture to smart city applications. This special issue targets the use of IoT and its related technologies (e.g. fog computing, data analytics, green computing, smart grid etc.) in developing countries. Building innovative solutions and services based on cutting edge technologies is very challenging in developing countries for several reasons. The limited IT infrastructure and Internet penetration are two of the key hindering barriers.
We are therefore seeking original, previously unpublished papers empirically addressing key issues and challenges related with the use of IoT for the emerging sectors in the developing countries. We are interested in current works of researchers and practitioners from academia and industry aiming to benefit the developing world from the technologies’ advances despite the existing limitations.
