    Welcome to the IoT on Wheels Design Challengers!

    'IoT on Wheels' begins with element14 in association with STMicroelectronics sponsoring the first 10 Challenger's vehicles with an NUCLEO-L476RG

    Interested in Challenging the Challengers? You can do it as a non-sponsored Challenger! Here's How:

    All you need to do is get the low-cost NUCLEO-L476RG  and integrate it into your project, as well as post 10 blogs about your design journey in the IoT on Wheels space (tagging your blogs 'iot on wheels') and you'll be eligible to win the awesome prizes.

     

    These Challengers will receive a Challenger Kit for FREE.

     

    But anyone can join the Challenge as a non-sponsored Challenger Here's how Simply get the low-cost  NUCLEO-L476RGNUCLEO-L476RG and integrate it into your project as well as post 10 blogs about your design journey in the IoT on Wheels space(tagging your blogs'IoT on Wheels

     

    Please join us in congratulating the official sponsored Challengers.  We look forward to reading all your initial blogs introducing your project designs:

    Project: Avoid the Bump!

    Synopsis: "The idea is to create a system which tracks the potholes as the vehicles navigate through the city and locate their geographic location so that it is easy for the authorities to fix them. Through the system, I plan to remove one major hurdle/excuse for the authorities claiming they do not know the location of the damaged roads and potholes."

    Project: Fatigue Alert System

    Synopsis: "I have a sleep disorder and this ups the possibility of falling asleep while driving. Fatigue is a factor in up to 21 per cent of motor vehicle collisions, resulting in

    about 400 deaths and 2,100 serious injuries every year. At 21 per cent, fatigue would rank as the third highest cause of collisions behind impaired driving and

    speed. This is an issue that needs to be addressed."

    Project: Traffic Predictor and Auto Pilot

    Synopsis: "It is everyone who will be annoyed to end up on a busy street with never ending traffic. This made me come up with an idea to machine learn and collect information through the mass storage capability of STM32 Nucleo-64 development board. Using the information collected, we can predict the routes the user use and the traffic he/she will face. We can suggest him/her with the alternative route or time which will save him/her from the traffic."

    Project: The Konker Connection

    Synopsis:

    "My Konker motorcycle is a great little machine for exploring the backwoods, overgrown trails, seldom used pathways, dirt trails and back roads. It is street legal but it is designed and built to go off-road. I also use it for commuting to work as it gets great gas mileage.

    It has only rudimentary instrumentation - in keeping with its rugged purpose, but I would like to outfit it with some useful extra features and this design challenge is a perfect excuse to take a run at implementing them."

    Project: Walking Wheels on Water

    Synopsis: "Make the wheel walking on the water is to make one plane on floating barrel and passive wheels.

    The plane can not fly on air, but can float on water and move on road. Driven by propellers."

    Project: Smart Road

    Synopsis:  "I had though, why make a vehicle smarter when you could in theory make all vehicles smarter by making the roads smarter.

    Using a fabric (or some other means of integrating with the tarmac) you could have smart patches throughout a road with various sensors for measuring temperature, humidity, wind speed and average speed of traffic, the smart road could then broadcast status messages to a console in a car warning of Ice, high winds or even if the traffic is slowing rapidly. This could be made available via a custom made device to pick up the signals or using an app for the consoles which are in built in most cars."

    Project: Smart Bike Smart Rider (SbSr)

    Synopsis: Gurinder endeavors to build a smart bike that will detect pot holes advise on weather conditions and grade a cyclists ride based on gradients of hills Safety is another key feature that will get an overhaul with the  X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2 Board

    Project: Cycle-Ops Security

    Synopsis: "Most people who ride a bicycle on  a regular basis are aware that it is of up most importance to secure your bike, as it is a significant investment, and you would not want it to be gone by the time you get done at work or in the grocery store. Many people are also aware that it isn't as easy to have GPS or use one's phone for navigation on bike as it is in a car or motorcycle.

     

    This project interest me as I have seen many bicycles on my college campus stolen and is one of the reasons I have hesitated in bringing one myself. If I can increase security and safety through making a smart bicycle I feel as though it would make it easier for more people to use the bicycle as a mode of transportation."

    USA

    Project: Vehicle Temperature Alert System (VeTAS)

    Synopsis: "Now a days we have been hearing about death of children being left inside hot cars. None of the vehicles driven today, old or new, have any way of intimating the drivers that either the car interior is getting hot, left a kid in the car or both. Hence this VeTAS project will enable the drivers to get notification when things are going wrong. "

    Project: Smart drive

    Synopsis: "I'd like to build a collaborative system, that will connect different participants on the wheels. They will be able to share data collected during their travels, Especially valuable will be data related to events like emergency breaking, collisions, crashes, this data will be linked to the position, speed and other information collected from the sensors."
