Thank you for all the exciting Challenge entries from around the world! IPSO CHALLENGE judges now have the task of reading all the entries and choosing the best of the best. Stay tuned for the Top 10 semi-finalists!
IPSO CHALLENGE was designed to advance the development and standardization of the Internet of Things (IoT). We challenge forward thinkers from around the globe to build working prototypes from innovative concepts in interfaces, interactions, and applications which showcase the use of the Internet Protocol (IP) in real world sensor/control and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications.
In 2014, The Alliance and its sponsors will offer prizes and incentives worth over $50,000 USD. All ten semi-finalists will be given the opportunity to demonstrate working prototypes to industry experts and investors at Sensors Expo 2014, the largest event devoted to sensor and actuator-integrated technology in North America.
The ten semi-finalists will be announced on 25 April, 2014. Semi-finalists and winners will receive extensive promotion through media, public relations, website features and social media. Entrants retain all rights to their designs.
Entries will be judged by a panel of leading industry experts. The overall winner will receive a cash prize of $10,000 USD and the benefits of global exposure and market contacts afforded by members of the IPSO Alliance and their partners. Second and third place winners will receive $5,000 and $2,500 respectively.
