There's a fast approaching submission deadline for the Open IoT Challenge organised by the Eclipse Foundation's Internet of Things (IoT) Working Group. Luckily all you have to do by November 23rd is to fill in a form outlining your idea.
This is the second time the Open IoT Challenge has run which means it is already possible to look at some of last year's projects, when more than 60 teams submitted entries, of which 10 were actually finished.
The challenge is an opportunity to to demonstrate what you can build for the Internet of Things using open standards and open source technology and the contest site states:
Developers who participate in the challenge are encouraged to build their solutions using any or all of the following technologies:
The contest is open to individuals ages 18 or over and although more than one individual can participate in creating a solution prizes will be awarded to the key contact who completes the entry form which had to be completed by November 23rd.
The teams submitting the 15 best proposals will be offered $150 to buy hardware and all entrants can benefit from offers from the contest's sponsors for using their offerings.
All teams then have until February 26th to complete their projects and in the spirit of the open source community are encouraged to blog about their experience. This is one of the judging criteria in selecting four winners who will win gift cards to be used in an online shop toward electronic supplies and open hardware with a top value of $3,000, plus other benefits.
