About the Journal

The Journal of Smart Cities offers a multidisciplinary forum for publishing original research in the area of smart cities, bringing together scholars from the fields of engineering, urban planning, computer science, and information and knowledge management. The Journal of Smart Cities will serve as an international platform by sharing the latest research achievements on smart cities globally, offering a comprehensive access to researchers and the academic communities.

The Journal of Smart Cities adopts a wide perspective on Smart Cities, as the broad use of information and telecommunication technologies to support an innovative and sustainable urban infrastructure and environment; as participatory action within cities, engagement of citizens, and investment in ICT, Internet technologies and smart objects, which increase the intelligence and problem solving capacity of cities; as an urban laboratory, a Living Lab, and a generator of solutions for wicked problems of inclusion, sustainability, climate change, and global competitiveness.

Main objectives of the Journal of Smart Cities is to promote research for the improvement of all sub-systems of cities, including urban infrastructure, construction, mobility, energy saving and renewable energy, health and social care, safety in the public space, work and innovation, and make the city easily accessible, effective, efficient, and an attractive place to live. Information and communication technologies, the Internet, and embedded devices into the physical space of cities is a means to achieve these objectives, which are mainly realized through the empowerment of city institutions, organizations, citizens, and end-users to make better, more informed, and intelligent decisions.

The Journal of Smart Cities aims to publish articles in all areas of smart cities, by scholars and experts in the field, but primarily from the fields of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Urban Planning, and Transport, while relevant contributions about the development of smart city technologies from the fields of Electrical Engineering, Informatics, and Computer Science are also welcome. Emphasizing on brilliant-quality research and timely publication, the Journal of Smart Cities invests in the management of best technological platform in an innovation context.

As an indispensable accessory in clothing, the quality of buttons will directly affect the sales of clothing.This research aims to realize the button defect detection system based on YOLO algorithm. After the implementation of the system, it is only need to collect a batch of button sample images, train the model, transmit it to the system, and call the button defect system, and the system will automatically identify the defects in the button. The use of button defect detection system can greatly reduce the labor force and detection error rate.
