The current proliferation of electronic things and smart devices are the main cause of arising of the Internet of Things, Internet of Services, and Internet of Agents approaches. This paper presents a framework for the development of soft real-time applications based on the Service Oriented Computing and Computer-Based Agents currently known as Internet of Services and Internet of Agents, respectively. The framework includes six dimensions—agent, interaction, environment, planning, organization, and normative—which are organized in order to accomplish the new current challenges of the Internet of Things. In addition, the framework also allows designing real-time agents through the inclusion of real-time restrictions in agent goals and plans in order to build real-time applications of Internet of Things.
