DescriptionThe objective of this research is to characterize the current emerged technology, Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) and also mathematically formulated and simulated the new network model for IoT. The research will be carried out in 4 major phase, first is analyze the characteristics, parameters, and specifications of LPWAN solutions. The second phase is network model design to design the mathematical equation/algorithm for selected LPWAN solution. The third phase is the simulation setup which a new network model of LPWAN will be designed and developed. Finally, the fourth phase is results verification. The final output of the research is expected to be used by the researchers to further the research related to LPWAN and also to improve the current LPWAN solution.
Candidates must be willing to work with minimal supervising and motivated to complete this project. Graduates from Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Science are encouraged to apply. Allowance will be given based on project completed.
