Do you remember last years’ smart home contest? This year, we want to go even further. It is now time to make your life even smarter. Your project could be anything from a simple smart work or smart office application to a more complex smart city solution making our lives more connected and therefore easier.
Do you want your coffee machine to start automatically as soon as your cup is empty? Or do you want to be notified, when there is a free parking space near you? All ideas are possible, all ideas are welcome!
We have one condition, though: Your project has to involve computer vision at one point in the system design. Apart from that, you are free to use any sort of sensor, processing or software technology that lets you realize your idea.
Here are some examples for project ideas:
This project contest has three phases.
Phase 1: Send us your ideas until September, 30 2018. The Imaginghub team will then choose the 10 most exciting ideas to move forward to phase 2. If your idea is among them, we will send you an UP Embedded Vision Starter Kit to turn your idea into a real project. You may also check www.up-board.org to get more inspiration.
Phase 2: Start building your project! Once you received the hardware, you can start building your application. Log in to the Imaginghub website, create a project and document your development journey. Your smart life solution should be finished by November 30, 2018.
If you like, you can also add images or videos of your project and its development process to present your solution.
Phase 3: After the end of phase 2, the jury, consisting of members of both the Imaginghub & UP team, will choose the winners.
The following aspects are part of our ranking process:
1. Innovation and novelty level: How innovative is your solution? Has it been done before?
2. Level of creativity: How creative is your way of solving a given problem?
3. Design and performance: Is your application running stable? How clean is your code?
4. The project's feasibility: Is it possible to actually build the solution?
5. Project demonstration and completeness of documentation: Has the project been completely documented towards the final result?
Winners will be announced by: December 10, 2018
