    All of the sponsored Challengers for the "IoT on Wheels" Design Challenge will receive for FREE the following kit, detailed in the table below, which is based on the STMicroelectronics STM32 Open Development Environment. 

    Our judges will choose 10 applicants to become sponsored challengers, these challengers will receive the kit free of charge. If your application is not chosen to become a sponsored challenger, you can buy the kit from the link below and still be in the running to win!

    The STM32 Open Development Environment is an open, flexible, and affordable way to develop innovative devices and applications based on the STM32 32-bit microcontroller family combined with other state-of-the-art ST components connected via expansion boards.

    To learn more, watch the video below.

     

     

     

    Once the sponsored Challengers receive their kit, they will then embark on their journey of designing an exciting and original project that will make their vehicle of choice – whether it has 1, 2, 3, or 4 wheels – safer, smarter, more efficient, or improves traffic management through the use of Internet connectivity and embedded devices. (NOTE: even if you aren't a sponsored Challenger, you can still participate in the Design Challenge as long as you follow with the terms and conditions and integrate the STMicroelectronics Nucleo MCU dev board into your design.)

     

    If you complete your project by the deadline and write at least 10 blog posts (tagging your blogs 'iot on wheels'), you’ll also be in the running for some awesome prizes, including a Segway MiniPRO.

     

    The deadline for project submissions is 13th November

    STM32 Nucleo Board

    The STM32 Nucleo board provides an affordable and flexible way for users to try out new ideas and build prototypes with any STM32 microcontroller line. With Arduino™ connectors and ST Morpho headers, the functionality of the STM32 Nucleo open development platform can easily be expanded with the use of specialized shields. The STM32 Nucleo board does not require any separate probe, since the ST-LINK/V2-1 debugger and programmer is integrated on the board. The STM32 Nucleo board also comes with the STM32 comprehensive software HAL library together with various packaged software examples, as well as direct access to mbed online resources.

    WiFi Expansion Board

    The X-NUCLEO-IDW04A1 Wi-Fi evaluation board is based on the SPWF04SA module. The SPWF04SA module has an embedded STM32 MCU, a low-power Wi-Fi b/g/n SoC with integrated power amplifier and power management, and an SMD antenna. The SPWF04SA module relies on 2 MB MCU internal Flash. 1 MB of the internal Flash is for storing the user file system and performing secure firmware update over the air (FOTA). A hardware interface allows the use of external memory to extend file system storage capability with no size limit. The firmware includes a complete IP stack, dynamic web pages with SSI to interact with the module and a REST API (get & post) for conveniently transferring files to and from servers in the cloud. The module can simultaneously behave as a socket server and socket client. The firmware supports secure sockets with TLS encryption, ensuring secure end-to-end communications with the cloud. The X-NUCLEO-IDW04A1 interfaces with the MCU on the STM32 Nucleo board via the UART serial port and SPI interface.
