The Internet of Things (IoT) is a telecommunication network in the next generation of applications with the rapid progress of wireless sensor network techniques that have touched many spheres of life today. Hardware, telephony, communications, storage, secure platforms, software and services, and data processing platforms are all part of the IoT environment. IoT sensors collect data from their environment and share it by connecting to the Internet gateway. These sensors often perform tasks without human intervention. This article aims to review real-time scheduling in the IoT to fully understand the issues raised in this area published from 2018 to 2022. A classification for IoT applications based on practical application is provided for selected studies. Selected studies include healthcare, infrastructure, industrial applications, smart city, commercial applications, environmental protection, and general IoT applications. Studies are sorted into groups based on related applications and compared based on indicators such as performance time, energy consumption, makespan, and assessment environments depending on the provided classification. Finally, this paper discusses all reviewed studies’ main concepts, disadvantages, advantages, and future work.
