The emergence of ubiquitous sensing and internet-of-things technologies has yielded amazing advances, products, and services to improve everyday life. New advances in indoor localization achieve centimeter scale accuracy, enabling smart environments and context-aware applications through ubiquitous tracking of people and objects. Breakthrough research on health monitoring demonstrate new technologies that monitor sleep, falls, breathing and heart rate without asking the users to carry any device or sensor on their bodies. Novel sensors count cars, detect speeding, and deliver smart parking and smart transportation networks.
