Embedded Systems Competition 2017 - WND IoT Challenge
The Embedded Systems Competition 2017 is a competition open to undergraduate and graduate students, providing the opportunity to develop intelligent and innovative Systems and contribute to the evolution of this segment of Computing in Brazil. This year the competition is being sponsored by WND, SIGFOX, ARM, and BAITA and the focus is the development of Embedded Systems for IoT Applications.
The selected teams will receive the OM2385/SF001 - OL2385 Wireless sub-GHz Transceiver SIGFOX Development Kit with KL43Z for the project preparation.
During development, each team will have to produce two reports: one “draft” to be delivered early (September, 20th) and another “final” closer to the end of the project's development (October 30th ), Afterward, if qualified, the project will be presented at SBESC, which will be held in Curitiba, Paraná - Brazil.
WND - The Internet of Things offers a plethora of new opportunities and will transform our lives: everything that can be connected will be connected. WND is a unique partnership covering more than 95% of Brazil's GDP and 70% of Latin America's GDP, combining Sigfox's technological leadership for IOT networks with WND's more than 10 years experience in launching and operating networks.
BAITA - Baita is a startup accelerator based in Campinas, currently operating in the Northeast of Brazil, which focuses on accelerating B2B or B2C startups, which have technology as a competitive differential or barrier to entry. Its partners are professionals with background as entrepreneurs and executives of multi-national companies in areas such as Telecom, Health, Semiconductors, HW, SW, allowing to provide to the startups of its portfolio high quality in the process of acceleration, networking with several market segments as well as a connection with national and international investors.
