As you know, Seeed has launched its open source innovation contest on Hackster.io, which is themed as “IoT Into the Wild Contest for Sustainable Planet 2022” on 8th of June, with a strong belief that open tech can lay an important foundation for achieving the UN‘s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), through filling the gap of seriously-lacking AIoT solutions that are applicable, scalable, plug-and-play, and easy-to-deploy at a global level.
So far, we’ve received 45 free hardware applications, along with 200+ people registered as the Contest participants. In an effort to inspire a broader number of potential participants, as well as to facilitate the makers and innovators to start their projects early-on, we’ve selected 27 free hardware applications to send out Seeed Studio LoRaWAN Dev Kit next week! 🙂
Now, meet the first batch of 27 winners who will get a free Seeed Studio LoRaWAN Dev Kit, thanks for submitting their amazing sustainability project ideas (the order of # is according to the free hardware application submission date and time):
#13 Plastic Bottle/Container Detection to Reduce River Pollution by JuanYi (Malaysia)
#25 IoT Forest Fire Detector for Remote Population Early Warning by Bruno Conceição (Portugal)
These 27 hardware applicants will shortly receive an email from Hackster Team on the confirmation of winning the free hardware, and then a follow-up email from Seeed Studio for guidance in receiving the free hardware. Congratulations! We shall be looking forward to the implementation of your project ideas, so don’t forget to share your detailed project documentation on the Contest page by September 27, 2022 (at the latest 11:59P.M. by PT), and to win the following Awards and prizes:
