This special issue covers recent developments in edge computing, which is a new computing paradigm in which the computing resources are placed at the edge of the Internet, in close proximity to mobile devices, sensors, end users and the emerging Internet of Everything. We have witnessed a wide range of progress, particularly in the past five years, spanning topics from systems and tools, which provide the basis for the edge computing; through innovative edge networks; edge computing applications in multiple domains, such as smart cities, public safety, and autonomous driving, industry IoT, and so on; to topics involve new security and privacy threats.
