We’re in an age of engineering marvels, surrounded by technology enabling constant connection and convenience, and yet by 2050, our planet will change in unimaginable ways. Two-thirds of the world’s population will live in urban cities exposed to unhealthy conditions in their daily lives. Over 5 billion people will suffer from water stress. The world needs innovators with big ideas about small things to solve these challenges.
One Idea Is All It Takes
Keysight Technologies is inviting undergraduate and graduate students worldwide in eligible countries to participate in its IoT Innovation Challenge. To enter, students must design a low-power sensor network strategy in one of two Innovation Tracks. Students will compete via online written and video submissions to win an all-expenses paid trip to the Grand Final at the World Maker Faire in New York, September 21-22, 2019. Six teams will advance to the final, where they will demonstrate their prototypes live before a panel of judges.
The Grand Champion team will win USD $50,000 in cash, and USD $50,000 of select Keysight test equipment for their school.
Two first place winners in each Innovation Track will win USD $25,000 in cash, and USD $25,000 of select Keysight test equipment for their school.
Pick Your Innovation Track
Track 1: Smart Land
Design a sensor network strategy to cover one sq. km. of urban area to monitor and report on one or more of the following: air quality, water quality, data quality and sound quality, for at least one year.
Track 2: Smart Water
Design a sensor network strategy to cover a major waterway area to monitor and report, on one or more of the following: acidity, turbidity, and contaminants, for at least one year.
Calling all students!
This is your chance to make the world better for billions. Are you ready to step up and innovate? Contest open to graduate and undergraduate students.
Any student graduating before the Grand Final event is also eligible to participate.
