Ankit Kumar, Kamred Udham Singh, Girish Paliwal, Swati Jain, Vaibhav Bhatnagar and Naresh Kedia


In an era of rapid technological advancement, the paradigm of smart environments has flourished, encompassing diverse realms like offices, homes, and cities. This expansion underscores the growing interconnection of applications and integration of the internet. Central to this evolution is the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), which epitomizes seamless interconnectivity orchestrated by the Internet. As technology advances, a more intricate dimension unfolds – the Internet of Nano Things (IoNT). This paradigm converges nanotechnology and IoT, facilitating nanoscale device interconnection through existing networks. The IoNT’s emergence presents diverse applications, alongside novel challenges, and research opportunities. This study navigates the contemporary landscape, scrutinizing trends, applications, and forthcoming challenges across various domains of societal significance. IoNT’s potential as a research avenue with implications for societal welfare becomes evident. Upon analysis, the prominence of technology in current IoNT discourse becomes apparent. Healthcare emerges as a pivotal domain, driven by IoNT applications, yet international standards concerning privacy, security, and nano-network architecture remain elusive. IoNT’s emergence offers profound research opportunities and technological advancements, prompting collaborative efforts to address standardization and security intricacies. These endeavors seek to harness IoNT’s transformative potential across diverse societal realms.
