I am working on my BSc Electrical Engineering final-year project, and have been asked to do a literature review to include in the project report.
My project is an Arduino-based power strip which can be controlled wirelessly using an Android application, and has power consumption reporting capabilities (among other things). It doesn't involve reading scientific papers, journal articles and the like - rather it is simple, hands-on electronics. It can be constructed easily by following tutorials and Instructables.
I chose it because it is in line with the whole 'home automation' theme, and will give me practical experience, not because I was looking to solve a scientific problem of some kind.
From what I've read about literature reviews, it seems as if they only apply to research-based projects that do solve a scientific problem. The student compares the previous work in that field, and expands on it in his project from a 'scientific' point of view. In my case, I just have a cool product that fits a particular market, but there is nothing scientifically new about it.
In this case, what should I do differently compared to a 'normal' literature review?
