A real-time carbon footprint monitoring system was named the winner in the “In the Air” design competition, sponsored by the element14 Community, in which 15 engineers from around the world competed to develop pollution measurement applications inspired by the Internet of Things (IoT) movement. The competition was supported by Cisco Systems, Texas Instruments (TI), Wurth Elektronik, The Eclipse Foundation, Sierra Wireless and Keysight Technologies.

The winning design, created by element14 member Christever del Rosario of New Zealand, allows users to monitor their carbon footprint in real time and make adjustments to their activity based on triggers and “daily allowance” warnings provided by del Rosario’s device. del Rosario took home the top prize – a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, a U1273A OLED Multimeter from Keysight and a SimpleLink™ Bluetooth® Smart SensorTag – for his design, courtesy of TI with additional support from Sierra Wireless.

CHICAGO – element14, along with partners EnOcean, Tektronix, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and the Eclipse Foundation, has announced the launch of the new “Forget Me Not” design challenge, a global design competition which will encourage participating engineers to develop pioneering applications in the field of home monitoring and automation. The initiative will use a core kit featuring popular products: Raspberry Pi, EnOcean Pi, EnOcean Sensor Kit and WiPi, as well as an oscilloscope courtesy of Tektronix.

The technologies that underpin the term “Internet of Things” have opened up new possibilities for remote control of home appliances and devices. The “Forget Me Not” challenge aims to solve common everyday problems for people, such as remembering whether or not they have locked the front door, taken out the trash or left the oven on. Using energy harvesting wireless sensors, IoT technologies are able to transmit information to smartphones and tablets, giving the user a real-time update on such statuses. Furthermore, there are implications for automating tasks while away from home, such as feeding pets or watering plants.[Continue reading →]
