March 2013 – IPSO CHALLENGE 2013 Update

By Nick Ashworth, IPSO Secretary

 What started as an idea back at the Fall Member Meeting in October 2011 has now come to fruition.  Launched on February 19th, IPSO CHALLENGE 2013 is underway. The purpose of the event is twofold: first, to promote the development of internet connected thingies (smart objects); and second, to create more awareness about the Internet of Things and the role the IPSO Alliance plays in defining and promoting interoperable solutions. Word about the contest has been spreading through various means including: press releases, social media, universities, and IPSO Alliance member companies. Entries are coming in from around the globe. The submission phase of the contest remains open until April 5th. The
contest culminates at Sensors Expo in Chicago on June 6, where the prizes of $10K, $5K and $2.5K will be awarded to the top three ideas. For details see: http://www.ipso-alliance.org/Challenge2013
