Presently, several devices can be connected at the same time, it is hoped that in the nearest future, billions of devices can be connected multifariously and will hopefully extend beyond the margins of physical components. This research will present the current state of art in research on the internet of things by reviewing related literature, ascertaining and describing current trends, current challenges, and future trends in IoT. The paper also provides possible future research directions. Keywords: Internet of Things, IoT,…show more content…
The keywords used for the literature search were “Internet of Things”, “IoT”, “Internet of things; current and future trends”, only scholarly databases were queried. The scholarly databases include: • ABI/INFORM Global • Academic OneFile • ACM Digital Library • Applied Science & Technology Full Text • Business Source Complete • IEEE • Medline • ScienceDirect The search was limited to peer-reviewed journals, full text articles and PDF files only. To further limit the search, we excluded conference papers, doctoral and thesis dissertations, and textbooks. A total number of 161 papers were carefully reviewed, analyzed and classified into a single category based on an existing classification scheme.
