Within the past few years, the Tactile Internet has seen an explosive growth of interest in the wireless communication society for enabling remote control in perceived real-time within an underlying fifth generation (5G) network. The purpose of this special issue is to assemble and publish recent research on the Tactile Internet and related research within the 5G of communication networks to realize the Tactile Internet. The articles in this special issue will cover a range of topics, including techniques to achieve key requirements of emerging use cases with 5G communication networks. Further focus will be on the architecture design of the Tactile Internet and the wireless edge, human-in-the-loop and machine-in-the-loop use cases, physical layer solutions for low-latency and high-reliability, and resource management approaches to achieve these requirements.
