The element14 Community is pleased to introduce the Sustain the World Design Challenge with Infineon.
Infineon is challenging the element14 community to design the most creative solution utilizing the Platform2GO XMC4200 MCU, the TL94112 Motor Controller, the DPS368 Pressure sensor, the TLV493D A1B6 MS2GO Magnetic Sensor, and a Profet+2 12 Smart Switch Shield, all from Infineon.
Infineon wants the element14 community to design solutions to make your life easier, safer, and greener. You can use the sensors provided on the board, or add your own sensors and actuators to be controlled by the Arduino Compatibility and Arduino Cloud.
Challengers are invited to use this kit to Sustain the World.
If applicants are successful, they can take advantage of the Arduino Compatible XMC4200 MCU, 3D Motion, Pressure Sensor Motor control, and Smart Switch Challenge kit.
20 successful applicants will receive the Challenge Kit free of charge to build and blog their project with. For the chance to win one of the prizes below, you must blog your build process and the final outcome of your Challenge Kit Projects within the Sustain The World Challenge space.
What Can I Build?
You can build anything you want, as long as it uses the XMC4200MCU and at least two other of the Infineon peripherals included in the kit.
Example applications could include:
- Micro Plastics Monitoring Buoy
- Remote fleet of ships which monitor pollution levels
- Roadside Littering Monitor
- Distributed CO2 Monitoring station
- Self-compacting Trash Cans
- Recycling Composition Tester
- Sea Level and Levy Monitor
- Automatic Tree Planter
- Trash Collection Bot
