Abstract: The internet-of-things (IoT) can be defined as the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects) is expected to usher in automation covering all major engineering fields, while also enabling advanced applications such as smart grid and smart surveillance. Smart surveillance system is mainly composed of automatic video/audio analysis. Therefore, an emerging surveillance system must consider multimedia information for monitoring activities and extracting meaningful information from the environment. Researchers are working to solve a number of challenging questions that are often encountered during the designing of smart surveillance systems. Some of those interesting questions are tough and fundamental, but unavoidable: what are the applications of smart surveillance? What are the possible system architectures for smart surveillance? What are the core technologies? What are key technical challenges? What are the implications of smart surveillance, both to security and privacy? As we anticipate, surveillance technology will be soon adopted to large networked system, we believe the role of IoT becomes very important in this context. This Special Issue aims to highlight the latest research results and advances on various signal processing algorithms, architectures, and technologies for multimedia-based smart surveillance system, and especially their applications in the IoT environment. In response to the call-for-papers of this Special Issue, we received very interesting submissions, from both industry and academia. Specifically, 20 papers were submitted, which have been assessed by many reviewers. All the reviewers are experts of the highest level, from both industry and academia, and their collaboration has been essential for the success of this Special Issue. As a result of the review process, we have selected 13 papers among them, which reflect prominent efforts and advances in the design and development of smart surveillance system and architecture with the internet-of-things (IoT). There are three categories: architecture (system), networks, and advanced algorithm.
