The disruptive potentials of the Internet of Things (IoT) entails multifaceted requirements and development issues (large scale deployments, heterogeneity, cyberphysicality, interoperability, distributed smartness, self-management, etc.). To adequately tackle them and to comprehensively support the development of the IoT ecosystem, the Agent-Based Computing (ABC) represents a proper and solid modeling, programming and simulation paradigm. Indeed, abstractions, design methods, technology and frameworks related to the ABC have been widely exploited, possibly jointly with other well-established/emerging computing paradigms, to actually develop advanced IoT ecosystem. This survey, an extension of our previous work, reports most relevant contemporary contributions in the field, aiming at assessing suitability of the ABC paradigm for the (current and future) IoT development.
