The IPSO Alliance (Internet Protocol for Smart Objects), of which Linear Technology / Dust Networks is a founding member, is sponsoring a contest for either individuals or companies to build working prototypes from innovative concepts to showcase the use of the Internet Protocol (IP) in real world sensor/control and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. The contest offers prizes and incentives worth over $50,000USD, with the final award ceremony at Sensors Expo 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.
Linear Technology's SmartMesh IP Embedded Wireless Sensor Networking products are built for IP compatibility and deliver >99.999% data reliability and >10 year battery life in a complete wireless mesh solution. The SmartMesh IP Starter kits can be easily used to rapidly build a low-power IP-based mesh network with proven reliability. To learn more about the SmartMesh IP Starter kits, watch the video or visit the DC9000B web page.
Entries for the IPSO Challenge are due no later than April 11, 2014. For more details, visit http://www.ipso-alliance.org/Challenge
