Ottawa, Canada – October 31, 2016 - The Eclipse Internet of Things (IoT) Working Group, hosted at the Eclipse Foundation, is pleased to announce the Open IoT Challenge. The third edition of this challenge encourages IoT enthusiasts and developers to build innovative solutions for the Internet of Things using open standards and open source technology. The previous edition of the Challenge resulted in a solution for remote patient monitoring in rural areas, a simulator of connected things and gateways, an IoT robot controller as well as a railway system, and other great solutions. This year’s participants will once again be supported with hardware development kits, receive technical support, and the winners will receive special prizes. This year the Challenge is sponsored by bitreactive, Bosch Software Innovations, Eurotech, MicroEJ, and Red Hat.
The Eclipse IoT Working Group is a community of 26 IoT open source projects and over 28 participating companies. The goal of Eclipse IoT is to provide a set of open source IoT technology that is used by the IoT industry to build open, commercial and enterprise IoT solutions.
The Open IoT Challenge encourages participants to build IoT solutions using any or all of the following technologies:
Participants are required to submit a proposal for their solution before November 25, 2016. A panel of judges will select a shortlist of participants that will receive hardware development kits. All participants will then have until the end of February to build their IoT solutions. The winners will be announced the beginning of March.
