The bibliometry performed relied on the advanced consultation at Scopus and Web of Science, achieving the following results: China, United States, besides South Korea, Taiwan and Japan stood out in the production of articles to the internet of things as well as the first two were the most cited in the articles as the largest publishers of patents to IoT; there was a greater concentration of works the Engineering and Computer Science involving the technological sector. The conclusion is that China was the country that stood out when the two databases were evaluated, being ahead of the other countries in terms of technology related to IoT.
