Yhe papers in this special section focus on industrial wireless networks. With the rapid advance of wireless technologies, numerous emerging solutions and applications of industrial wireless systems have been developed. The present development of communication in industrial environments drives the need for ubiquitous access to distributed resources and services that are connected to things, devices, and systems. Service completions are typically perfected through smart APPS on wireless data delivery, such as WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, and 5G. The occurrence of Internet of Things (IoT) further catalyzes the advent of the wireless era. These papers cover the comprehensive solutions of wireless network developments, industrial applications, and wireless prototype designs.
