The twelve articles in this special section focus on new and enabling technologies for smart Internet of Things (IoT). IoT supports ubiquitous information exchange and content sharing among smart devices with little or no human intervention, is a key enabler for various applications. Smart IoT cannot be simply regarded as an upgrade of current IoT by just adding to or replacing sensors/actuators/RFID tags in smart devices. It should be redesigned from the physical layer to the application layer… 
Towards Ubiquitous Power Distribution Communication: Multi-service Access and QoS Guarantees for IoT Applications in Smart Grid
TLDR
A priority-queue-controlled multi-service access mechanism is proposed to carry various services including telemetering, remote control and sensor data transmission, and QoS guarantee schemes are proposed to provide reliable communication channel forRemote control and smart metering services through data caching and link handover.
Design Flow and Methodology for Dynamic and Static Energy-constrained Scheduling Framework in Heterogeneous Multicore Embedded Devices
TLDR
A dynamic and static energy-constrained scheduling framework in heterogeneous multicore embedded devices is proposed and theoretical analysis and practical verification using the low-power ODROID-XU4 device confirm the effectiveness of the proposed framework.
A Physical-Layer Scheduling Approach in Large-Scale Cooperative Networks
TLDR
The objective in this paper is to gain insights into duty cycling-based medium access protocol design in the presence of multiple data flows by analyzing the probabilities of detection for this method of detecting schedules using an irreducible discrete time Markov chain.
