    Abstract

    Internet of Things based applications for smart homes, wearable health devices, and smart cities are in the evolutionary stage in India. Adoption of Internet of Things is still limited to a few application areas. In developing countries, the usefulness of IOT's adoption is recognized as a key factor for economic and social development of a country by both academicians and practitioners as well. Currently, there are still very few studies that explore the adoption of Internet of Things from a multiple theory perspective, namely, The Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA), The Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) and The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). This research aims to satisfy a clear gap in the main field of research by proposing a Structured Equation Model (SEM) approach to test three competing models in the context of Internet of Things in India. With respect to previous literature, this research sets the stage for extensive research in a broad domain of application areas for the Internet of Things, like healthcare, elderly well- being and support, smart cities and smart supply chains etc.
