The research gap analysis requires you to study at least fifteen (15) related and recent papers presented at relevant conferences and journals. These should be related to IoT underpinning technologies, tools and models. The objective is to help you to review and evaluate state-of-the-art in IoT [login to view URL] avenues such as relevant IEEE conferences or Journals as well as Elsevier’s Journals on IoT and smart Homes should be considered. Furthermore, efforts should be focused on the flaws or areas requiring further research works and clearly identify with a full critical explication the strengths and limitations of existing works in the field. demonstrate the ability of designing, applying and deploying IoT solutions, the previous gap analysis must be contextualised in a real scenario. Doing so, the previously identified challenges and limits must be highlighted, together with eventual solutions and possible future direction for further research. Structure of the Report Abstract This is where you need to provide an informative abstract of the work carried out. The details of the topic and how it has been approached, how and why. Please note that this should not be more than 250 words. Introduction A brief introduction to the background work should be provided. Also, it should outline the rest of the paper i.e. what should be expected in the later part of the report. Survey & Research Gap Analysis This section is at author’s discretion. However, it should contain the details of the current state of the technologies, tools and models. Students should be able to demonstrate a strong critical analysis and deep understanding of the concept or materials covered. Please, ensure that the appropriate length is devoted to each models or standards while coherence is being maintained. Application in real-life scenario In this section, the author describes a real scenario on which to apply what emerged from the gap analysis, both in terms of problems and in terms of solutions. Conclusion This is where a summary of your findings or your own work is presented. References Please only consider citing relevant peer reviewed materials. You should provide adequate citation(s) throughout your document including graphs or equation taken for elsewhere using the IEEE referencing style. You should use recent materials except it is very important to the topic or contains fundamental principles on the topic. Presentation Style This should normally be IEEE standard on A4 paper. You are free to choose between a single column or double column layout and the maximum words allowed are 2,000 (+/- 5%) excluding references and preambles.
