Abstract: Climate smart facility agriculture is considered to be a critical factor in terms of sustainability due to the predictions of the world population increase. Since the cutting edge technology of the internet of things (IoT) was introduced as the next internet revolution, enabling its continuously extending applications in facility agriculture is expected to become a major asset. In particular, the implementation of the IoT technologies in facility agriculture, through the intelligent monitoring and automated control of the entire agricultural production and food chain, is an innovative research field of essential importance for the global sustainable growth. In this paper, an attempt is made to survey the most significant approaches regarding the technologies and applications of the IoT in the sector of facility agriculture as well as to identify the trends and challenges regarding their efficient deployment in the context of climate smart philosophy for the benefit of sustainable development.
