IEEE IoT Journal front cover

The IEEE Internet of Things Journal (ISSN 2327-4662) issued a special issue on the topic "Internet of Food: Emerging Trend and Challenges".

The Internet of Things (IoT), indeed, is becoming increasingly prevalent in the food domain. The food industry and the agriculture depend on safer and smarter systems, able to produce high-quality food. Augmented and mixed reality environments can allow food manufacturers to better manage their inventory through eye sensors and spatial mapping. Individuals’ health - mostly related to food - can be monitored thanks to smart scales and wearable devices. Even cooking and eating can benefit from IoT devices, with things able to deliver food morsels via acoustic levitation to explore new tastes, or blended environments designed for multisensorial experience, to enable learning and allow for creative personalization. The purpose of this special issue is to provide the academic and industrial communities a venue covering all aspects of state-of-the-art approached, methods, and systems at the crossing of food and IoT, to advance their joint applications.
