- Since the Internet of Things has become more and more popular, the number of devices in IoT increase at a rapid clip. Some Researches introduced virtual object to enrich the management of the devices. Therefore, virtual object life cycles will need to be thoroughly managed, so that when their usage changes or they are not needed anymore, the virtual objects should be updated and deleted correspondingly. However, there is no specific way in IoT to execute garbage collection of virtual objects. This paper proposes a garbage collection method for virtual objects that uses the concept smart device to manage the virtual objects' life cycles and solve the circular references problem when using the smart device.
