Intelligent Mailbox by -saicheong
Sai comes in second with their Smart Mailbox. This remote mailbox seems fairly simple on first glance but the complexity within really blew the mind of the judges.
Firstly the project would light up and inform you when a letter arrives, this passes the data over AWS to a telegram service, email or SMS, Fairly simple but well done.
We had a 2 week extension at the end of this challenge and some challengers who were finished and downed tools, Sai decided to use the remaining time at the end of the challenge to Train a Neural Network with sounds of dogs playing and barking. Training this mailbox to know if a dog is barking aggressively and then to warn the mail carriers of this.
These projects won't be winning the top spot prizes but we loved their projects so much we wanted to publicize their amazing work.
Samyak created a Billboard Rental System. Allowing users to buy advertisement space on a website, AWS would handle the data and the advertisements would be displayed on location for the time period paid for.
Wan Created a Smart Pet Watering and Feeding System, including Amazon FreeRTOS and using the Cypress PSoC 6's touch sense to stop the bowl from over filling
Jerome created an Amazon Alexa Integrated pill dispenser with remote authorization and voice control using MQTT, AWS and the Cypress PSoC6 as the main controller.
I want to thank Cypress and Amazon for their amazing support during this challenge as they have worked very closely with the community to produce some amazing projects using the PSoC 6.
