The Internet of Things is a revolutionary concept, within cyberphysical systems, rich in potential as well as in multifacet requirements and development issues. To properly address them and to fully support IoT systems development, Agent-Based Computing represents a suitable and effective modeling, programming, simulation paradigm. As matter of facts, agent metaphors, concepts, techniques, methods and tools have been widely exploited to develop IoT systems. Main contemporary contributions in this direction are surveyed and reported in this work.
