In upcoming years, the advancement in nanotechnologies is expected to accelerate the development of integrated devices with the size ranging from one to a few hundred nanometers. With the aim of developing miniaturised classical machines and creating nano-devices with new functionalities, nanotechnologies have produced and continued creating some novel nano-materials and nano-particles with new behaviours and properties that are not observed at the microscopic level. The links and connectivity between nano-devices distributed through collaborative efforts lead to the envision of nano-networks, followed by the nano-communication proposal. The limited capabilities of nano-machines in terms of processing power, complexity and range of operations can be expanded by this collaborative communication. It is sustaining the revolutionary transition from the Internet of things to the Internet of nano-things.
