The Keysight IoT Innovation Challenge allows individuals and teams to compete to win up to $50,000 in cash and $50,000 of select Keysight test equipment for their school. With the IoT Innovation Challenge, says the company, it is looking for next-generation engineers who can innovate solutions to challenges posed by unhealthy conditions found in urban environments.

To win, entrants will need to imagine how crowded cities can be more livable with smart sensors or how to intelligently monitor waterways to ensure clean water.

“Striking the optimal electronic design balance between precision sensor performance, rich data collection, longevity, and scalability is very challenging, especially when taking into account urban and aquatic environments,” says Christopher Cain, vice president and general manager of Keysight Technologies Electronic Industrial Products. “Supplying uninterrupted power to IoT sensors in these challenging environments requires innovation in dynamic power utilization and long-term battery life, which can help enable a brighter future for billions of people around the world.”

Students will compete with their design ideas via online written and video submissions to win an all-expenses paid trip to the final competition at the World Maker Faire in New York (Sept. 21-22, 2019). Six individuals or teams (two people per team) will advance to the final, where they will demonstrate their ideas live on stage before a panel of judges. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the live event.

The IoT Innovation Challenge is open for registration. The first 80 people in each of the competition regions to successfully register and submit a qualified entry (either as an individual or as part of a team) will win a handheld digital multimeter. All entries must be submitted by May 15, 2019 and finalists will be announced on June 26, 2019.
