RFC 6574 [RFC6574] refers to smart objects as devices with constraints on energy, bandwidth, memory, size, cost, etc. This is a fuzzy definition, as there is clearly a continuum in device capabilities and there is no hard line to draw between devices that can run Internet protocols and those that can't.

         Architectural Considerations in Smart Object Networking


   The term "Internet of Things" (IoT) denotes a trend where a large    number of embedded devices employ communication services offered by    Internet protocols.  Many of these devices, often called "smart    objects", are not directly operated by humans but exist as components    in buildings or vehicles, or are spread out in the environment.    Following the theme "Everything that can be connected will be    connected", engineers and researchers designing smart object networks    need to decide how to achieve this in practice.

   This document offers guidance to engineers designing Internet-    connected smart objects.
