Internet of things, Smart Devices, Internet of everything, Cloud, Systematic literature review


The advent of state of the art advanced technologies is necessitated by the ever-increasing onset and infiltration of our lives by the smart devices and gadgets for providing an array of services. The conventional methods and techniques already becoming obsolete and the consistent and persistent demand for provision of high end services with a greater degree of accuracy by various sectors, paves the way for collaboration of smart technologies such as Internet of things, Internet of everything, Internet of Vehicles etc. with the smart gadgets and devices. This systematic review tries to explore the avenues for research and multiple streaming of segments by the analysis of allied smart systems comprising of smart devices and multi-dimensional IoT, IoE, IoV etc.
