A Systematic Review of the Role of Perceived Risk and Trust in IoT Adoption in Agriculture

Ayça AlpBehiye Selin Gökkut

Over a decade, despite being a new concept and not having a distinct definition, the Internet of Things gained interest from the business world and researchers. To explain IoT adoption and its elements, this research employed citations of IoT Adoption in Agriculture: The Role of Trust, Perceived Value, and Risk originating paper. Based on Internet of Things Adoption, articles found From the Web of Science and Scopus databases were classified by using thematic analysis methods. After thematic analyses, The VOSviewer program is used in this paper to group related terms for cluster analysis. IoT, or the internet of things, agriculture, adoption, and trust are the five essential terms. Among these five keywords, the three most used were investigated: IoT (internet of things), agriculture, and adoption. In literature, the adoption of IoT technologies in agriculture is a relatively new term to study. An examination of the existing literature revealed the connection between the keywords. There is a pretty new study relationship between agriculture and IoT technologies. The aim was to highlight numerous constraints of present technology adoption research and to create a multi-level framework for future researchers.
