IoT Challenge

The “IoT Challenge” offers a platform to graduate students, PhD students, researchers and developers working in all areas of Internet of Things to share and showcase their recent highly innovative research and practical solutions to real-world problems.The solutions should be highly novel, exiting, and show a complete and working system, addressing a relevant application area for IoT, including, but not limited to: supply chain and logistics, healthcare, M2M, security, environmental monitoring,intelligent transport systems,smart homes, industrial manufacturing, and critical infrastructures.
The topics of interest include, but are definitely not limited to:

 – smart Dust technologies: highly miniaturized integrated microelectronic or MEMS based solutions, addressing aspects as energy harvesting, wireless communication, and efficient processing.

 – opportunistic networking and participatory sensing: solutions showing the potential impact of the use of smartphones, and the integration and sharing of different sensor systems for IoT

 – wearable computing and smart textiles: showing integrated solutions for body area networking, their interaction with people and environment.

 – real Time Localization Systems: should demonstrate efficient, scalable, and easy to deploy localization technologies.

 – Internet integration: showing end-to-end internet based IoT solutions offering scalable and efficient services.

Contestants are free to choose their topic beyond the ones mentioned above as long as it is related to the Internet of Things concept, and it clearly shows a significant progress beyond the State of the Art. Both individual and group participations are welcome.

Join the mbed challenge!

The challenge is to publish a project and the building blocks that make it up that is inspiring, inventive, useful or just plain cool. The great thing when you publish something like this is you are helping your fellow developers prototype even faster by building on your work, but you can also enter it in the design challenge and win some of the prize money that is up for grabs 🙂

They’re going to use the tag mbedchallenge to mark things related to this challenge, so if you post anything on mbed (notebook, cookbook, forum) or on flickr, youtube etc, make sure you tag it with mbedchallenge!
