Element14 and Texas Instruments (TI) are pleased to announce the winner of the Ultimate Road Test competition.


It was a difficult choice, given the quality of our competitors and the innovative solutions they put forward using TI SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000TI SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 and MSP430-FRAM evaluation module kit.


We were intrigued by John Tiernan's "Nice Asgard Project"; the ability to set the perfect atmosphere for watching a film with a minimum of fuss is an excellent application of home automation technologies.



We also thought very highly of Nick Schulze's "Bread and Butter" project: the idea of a smart fridge which tells you when you're low on supplies has been around for some time, however a smart refrigerator shelf seems a much better and more inexpensive way forward.  



However, in the end there could only be one winner: thanks not only to his innovative yet quirky project, but also the breadth and depth of information he has provided, as well as his boundless enthusiasm, the winner is Monte Chan and project "Code Name.”


Monte will be receiving a DLP LightCrafter ProjectorDLP LightCrafter Projector from TI; we hope that this prize will continue to inspire him in his engineering endeavours.


A sincere thanks to all those who took part; we look forward to the next Ultimate Road Test!
