Entrants will be asked to submit their ideas online at http://uk.farnell.com/university-iot-challenge, along with the bill of materials required to build a prototype. Potential ideas would include an IoT device to test water quality in a third world country or sensor system to monitor activity of elderly loved ones living alone.
Entrants taking part in this exciting challenge are encouraged to be as creative and informative as possible in their entry, whilst ensuring that their concept is realistic and could be developed into a prototype.
Farnell element14 will choose four finalists based on the merit and originality, which will then be put to a public vote on the element14 community.
Winners will receive the bill of materials for the project/idea and the balance of £5,000 to spend at uk.farnell.com. They will also receive a bundle of test and measurement products from Rhode & Schwarz including one RTC1000 Oscilloscope (50MHz, 2ch 8ch MSO) and one NGE102 power supply.
The Farnell element14’s team will offer support to the winners to help them build and test their design. Entry to this competition closes on Friday 4th May. Students and educators looking to enter the competition can find more information and read full Terms and Conditions at http://uk.farnell.com/university-iot-challenge
