It is also student’s full responsibility to ensure that all assignments are submitted on the correct link and on time before the submission date.|
|How will your work be assessed? Your work will be assessed by a subject expert who will use the marking grid provided in this assessment brief. When you access your marked coursework, it is important that you reflect on the feedback so that you can use it to improve future assignments. How will feedback be provided? Students will have access to formative feedback on each task set in workshops, thereby helping them to refine their approach to the summative tasks that have been set. However, please note that this feedback is limited to recommendations on improving your work. Lecturers will not confirm any grades or marks. The feedback can be one-to-one or in-group sessions.|
|Assignment support: Although you will be guided throughout the module by your lecturer, you can get extra support for your assignment, just make an appointment with the ACE team for any language, research and study skills issues and/or talk, email the Computing ACE expert for any advice on how to approach your assignment. REMEMBER: they are not here to give you the answers!|
Expectations: Every individual should analyse and design a suitable solution using any IoT development board like raspberry pi/ Arduino/ ESP32/ ESP8266, etc and different services/ sensors. Note: You can plan and choose any IOT board and any sensors. This assignment will assess module learning outcomes 2, 3 and 4.
Rationale: The report should demonstrate understanding of industry-based challenges given below. The awareness of various types of solutions should be shown and recommendations for potential solutions should be based on justified arguments. You should demonstrate how theories can be applied. The robustness and correctness of the system should be tested, and performance should be evaluated with known and innovative technological solutions. You should reflect upon measures/steps taken to incorporate ethical, accessibility and usability standards in the developed system and the resultant implications.
Individual Assessment – 40%
Suggested requirements for the assignment: Raspberry pi/ Arduino/ ESP32/ ESP8266. You can also develop and test the whole system in simulation software like Tinkercad or Proteus or Wokwi with any programme language, connectivity network, output devices (i.e. LED/ MQTT Lens, I2C or SPI LCD or even Serial Monitor).
The Scenario – IoE
You need to build a complete IoT system that can have real life application related to home, healthcare, transportation, and community, etc. For example, one can create a system that can measure and monitor humidity & temperature of home, measuring distance between the two objects, creating a Burglar alarm or any other security system.
For this development, you need to develop a system using at least 1 esp32/ Arduino/ raspberry pi, 1 sensor device (any active or passive sensor) and 1 output device (Serial monitor/ LCD/ LED/ MQTT lens). Finally, you should also make use of wireless communication using either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
- The solution could use any type of output devices (i.e. LED/ MQTT Lens, I2C or SPI LCD or even Serial Monitor).
- The solution could use any type of input devices (i.e. Passive Infrared sensor, Ultrasonic sound sensor or DHT sensor).
- You can use any development IDE (Integrated development environment) and any programming language (Arduino C or Python, etc) of your choice.
- You should demonstrate the use of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to send or receive data from IoT devices to output devices.
- You can further publish the sensors data to any MQTT broker or HTTP server.
Specific Deliverables: The lab report should include the following:
- Provide explanations for your chosen system covering its functionalities.
- Provide description of the solution (what IoT system has been implemented? What does it do? What sensors and output devices have been used?)
- Provide the whole architectural design of the chosen IoT system.
- Provide explanations and working of all protocols used in your designed system.
- Provide the whole programming codes used in the whole system.
- Provide the snapshots demonstrating the testing and working of the system.
- End the report with a section containing discussion on the issues and application areas of the system including an understanding of the commercial context and privacy/security issues.

Deliverables: Your assignment only consists of one task. It should be submitted as a word document (max. 2500 words in total excluding diagrams and appendices) via Turnitin on Moodle and must include all the required components related to the proposed design.
An IoT system needs to be developed along with a comprehensive report for the assignment based upon a realistic scenario.
|Submission instructions: A digital version of all assignment submissions. These must be submitted via Turnitin on the module’s Moodle site. They must be submitted as a Word file and must not include scanned in text or text boxes. They must be submitted before 2pm on the given date. For further general details on coursework preparation refer to the online information https://library.roehampton.ac.uk/studytoolkit For further details on how to submit your work, please click on the link below. https://roehamptonlearning.com/eLearningServices/?p=3654|
|Word count Don’t exceed the word count You need to state the word count at the end of their assignment. 10% over the stated word count is permitted without penalty. If students go beyond this, then there is a penalty of 5 marks for every additional 10% beyond the word count with a maximum of a 15-mark penalty reduction. There is no specific penalty for submitting a piece which is below the word count, but please note that shorter submissions are likely to attract poorer grades, particularly where they lack the necessary depth of analysis. Tables and figures (e.g. diagrams, graphs, photographs, etc) may be used as evidence to support academic argument. They are mostly used in report writing. However, it is important that tables and figures are used purposefully (i.e. with good reasons) and when appropriate. They should also be referenced correctly. How do you calculate the word count? The word count includes the Abstract or Executive Summary and all in-text citations. The word count does not include the Bibliography and Appendices. Please note that Appendices should only include supplementary information, not information critical to your work.|
|Use of pictures/images: It is mandatory that you add the following statement to your assignment: ‘disclosure: diagrams, pictures or any other images used in this assignment are for educational purposes only’. Although images, diagrams and photographs etc..can be used in assignments, they MUST be referenced. However, you can access the following websites (copyright-friendly): Pixabay Free photos for commercial and private use – no attribution necessary.

Assignment Preparation and Guidelines
Marking and feedback process
Between you handing in your work and then receiving your feedback and marks within 20 working days, there are a number of quality assurance processes that we go through to ensure that students receive marks which reflects their work. Please note that the summative feedback and the grades remain provisional until approval from the exam board.
A brief summary is provided below.
- – The module and marking team meet to agree standards, expectations and how feedback will be provided.
- – A subject expert will mark your work using the criteria provided in the assessment brief.
- – A moderation meeting takes place where all members of the teaching and marking team will review the marking of others to confirm whether they agree with the mark and feedback
- – Work at Levels 5 and 6 then goes to an external examiner who will review a sample of work to confirm that the marking between different staff is consistent and fair
- – Your mark and feedback is processed by the Office and made available to you.
Plagiarism and Collusion
- is a matter that is taken very seriously at the university and student should endeavour to enforce it to all their assignments. In other words, plagiarism, collusion (working and copying from another student) and ghost writing will not be tolerated and will result in sanctions eg: capped resit, suspension and/or withdrawal. Correct referencing demonstrates your academic and professional skill. It also reflects your academic honesty and thus to some degree protects you from cases of plagiarism.
Submission and Late submission
Resit submission date: TBC
For students, who are offered a resit, you are required to improve and resubmit your original work. You must resubmit your work using the specific resit Turnitin link on Moodle. Please check the Moodle page and your emails for more information.
If you did not submit work at the first opportunity you cannot reflect on your feedback. However, you are still required to submit your work. Please note that a non-submission will result in a Qualified-Fail. The original marking criteria will still apply, please refer to the marking criteria.
