The opportunistic networks are a subclass of delay-tolerant networks where communication opportunities (contacts) are intermittent and there is no need to establish an end-to-end link between the communication nodes. The Internet of Things (IoT) present the notion of large networks of connected devices, sharing data about their environments and creating a diverse ecosystem of sensors, actuators, and computing nodes. IoT networks are a departure from tradi- tional enterprise networks in terms of their scale and consist of heterogeneous collections of resource constrained nodes that closely interact with their environment. There are different issues for these networks. One of them is the selection of IoT devices in order to carry out a task in opportunistic networks. In this work, we implement a Fuzzy-Based System for IoT device selection in opportunistic networks. For our system, we use three input parameters: IoT Device Storage (IDST), IoT Device Waiting Time (IDWT) and IoT Device Node Centrality (IDNC). The output parameter is IoT Device Selection Decision (IDSD). The simulation results show that IoT device selection is increased up to 33% and 43% by increasing IDNC and IDSD, respectively.
