IOT product design competition for transportation application

Electronic component distributor element 14 has launched a design competition for electronics engineering community to design a IOT system for transportation application. The design challenge is called "IOT on wheels".

The semiconductor partner for this challenge is leading microcontroller and other semiconductor chip maker STMicroelectronics. The competing electronics engineers to use STMicroelectronics STM32 Nucleo embedded board in creating a prototype that makes automotive/transportation vehicle smarter, safer, and efficient.

The connectivity in the vehicles is growing at a fast rate, it is estimated that 381 million connected cards will be on the road by 2020 compared to 36 million in 2016, as per  BI intelligence. Some of the innovation examples include access to music while driving, and reducing car insurance bills by monitoring the driver behaviour. Element 14 invites engineers to design a inspirational prototype to make travelling in vehicles safer and enhance comfort levels. This competition covers not only road vehicles but all types of transportation people use.

Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of  Community and Social Media, element14  points out "the opportunity in India's automotive market where the number of cars on India's road reportedly doubles every 8-10 years we want our challengers to consider how we can make our vehicles safer, smarter or more efficient."

element14 will accept applications for the ‘IoT on Wheels’ challenge from now until 14th August 2017. Ten official challengers will be announced on 28th August who will receive a complimentary kit containing the STM32 Nucleo MCU development board along with a sensor expansion board, Bluetooth LE expansion board, WiFi expansion board, all from ST Microelectronics.  Each of the 10 challengers will provide weekly updates on their progress through blog posts, photos and videos via the element14 Community.

Challengers will have until 13th November 2017 to submit their projects. Entries will be judged on originality, innovation and technical merit by a panel of judges including experts from ST Microelectronics, Loughborough University’s Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electronic, and Manufacturing Engineering and element14 top member judge, Rachael Peterson.

The results are going to be out in  December 2017. The grand prize winner will receive a bundle of products worth over $1700 including a Segway MiniPRO, Oculus Rift and Touch VR Headset and Duratool Crimp Kit.  The Second Prize Bundle is worth over $1000 containing a Pioneer GPS Cycle Computer Bundle, GoPro Hero 5 Black Action Camera and Soldering Iron, hot knife & Heat Tool Kit.  The Third Prize Bundle worth over $800 containing a Traxxas Slash Radio Controlled Car pro, QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones and a Tenma Programmable Bench Power Supply.  All Challengers who submit a completed project will receive a Duratool Electronic Tool Kit, Duratool Heat Gun and a Tenma Handheld Digital Multimeter.
