IoT Services for Solving Critical Problems in Vietnam: A Research Landscape and Directions


Critical problems in Vietnam — such as food safety, traffic management, saltwater
intrusion, and wastewater management — require novel Internet of Things (IoT)
solutions. Here, the authors analyze current research and developments and
propose specific IoT services as solutions.
