The full press release can be read by clicking here. A big thank you to all who participated in the In the Air IoT Design Challenge, the partners, element14 and the wider public have been deeply impressed by the projects we've seen to help create a greener, cleaner world. It was not an altogether straightforward matter to pick a winner: however, in the end, we've awarded the prizes to the following individuals and their projects. The Grand Prize The Grand Prize has gone to Christever del Rosario ...

Programing code and Hardware: Like what I guess. I really stuck at the programing coding. It take me more time then the given. The given example code from the Sensirion cannot just implemented directly in the Energia . Example code from Arduino also not working in Energia it just show so many unclear error massage. Link to the sample code for the Sensirion sensor http://www.sensirion.com/en/products/humidity-temperature/download-center/. Example for the given sample code: I a ...
well, obviously I overestimated my free time when I designed the project concept, hence did not manage to complete the system. It was really fun though, and a great opportunity to play with some really cool stuff, like the TI launchpads, BBB, BitScope and various sensors. Also it was good excuse to upgrade my workbench equipment, so I am now better prepared for IoT hardware adventures.  I would not want to waste all the sensors I got, plus I do want to view and log air quality information f ...
One of, the most important aspects for an IoT solution, in my point of view, is device management, and more specifically the ability to receive over the air firmware updates (OTA). If OTA works, all other problems can be potentially solved. My architecture in the [Air ex Machina] project, consists of the following layers: backend, cloud based system. (e.g. airvantage) gateway - integration platform (e.g. openhab on BBB) sensor device (e.g. freeRTOS application on CC3200) Cloud based sys ...
Hello everyone from Chrystal and Dale,   We want to thank everyone for this exciting and very big learning experience. Although we didn't complete 100% of what was planned, we will continue to work on this project until finished. For both of us it ended up being a lot more than we figured. From changing our overall plans by adding the whole biology part to the project made it harder to figure out how to do this. We did complete the centrifuge, microscope, some sensors, wireless wifi, recha ...
