Definition

(Context: Enterprise Architecture, General, Hardware)


General:  An electronic device, generally connected to other devices or networks via different wireless protocols such as Bluetooth, Zigbee, NFC, Wi-Fi, LiFi, 5G, etc., that can operate to some extent interactively and autonomously. Several notable types of smart devices are smartphones, smart vehicles, smart thermostats, smart doorbells, smart locks, smart refrigerators, phablets and tablets, laptops, smartwatches, smart bands, smart key chains, and others. The term can also refer to a device that exhibits some properties of ubiquitous computing, including—although not necessarily—artificial intelligence.  Smart devices can be designed to support a variety of form factors, a range of properties pertaining to ubiquitous computing and to be used in three main system environments: physical world, human-centered environments and distributed computing environments.

Hardware:  An electronic device capable of connecting to a network, or to other devices, via wireless communication protocols, and which can operate interactively and autonomously to some extent. It includes devices that exhibit some properties of ubiquitous computing, such as artificial intelligence.  Smart devices support a variety of form factors, a range of properties pertaining to ubiquitous computing and to be used in three main system environments: physical world, human-centered environments, and distributed computing environments.  Several notable types of smart devices are:  Laptops;  Smartphones;  Tablets & Phablets;  Smartwatches;  and Smart vehicles.
