1. About the “Integrate Everything with IOTA” Contest
After releasing our I2T Open-Source Hub featuring integrations between a number of IoT devices and the IOTA Protocol, IOT2TANGLE is calling for community IoT/IOTA submissions for the “Integrate Everything with IOTA” Contest, sponsored by Espressif, STMicroelectronics, Bosch, Senseering, Vass Company, IOT ONE Academy and the IOTA Foundation.
This contest aims to generate quality open-source integrations that will be valuable stepping-stones for subsequent development projects that connect IOT devices with Distributed Ledger Technologies.
Learn more about the contest in this short post.
2. Important Dates
Contest start: October 26th, 2020
Contest end: November 26th, 2020
Winners Announcement: December 6th, 2020
Note: Full details on How to Register will be released at the same time as the contest opens on Monday, October 26th, 2020.
All integrations must be submitted as open-source under the Apache 2.0 License. The Top 5 projects will receive exciting prizes. The Top 10 projects will be included in the I2T Hub and will be made available to the open-source community.
Integrations will be judged according to the value and utility they provide towards real-world use cases. In addition to participants’ own creative thinking we are expecting to see submissions related to Smart Cities, Smart Agriculture, Supply Chain Tracking, E-Health and Environmental Control.
All integrations between IoT Devices and the IOTA Protocol must use the IOTA Streams Framework. Participants can use the I2T Streams Gateway as provided or modify it and add new connectivity features that have not yet been provided by us (BLE, LPWAN). Projects adding new features or improving existing connectivity features to the Streams Gateway will earn bonus points.
Contestants can use any type of IoT device except for Arduino boards (projects that carry Atmel microcontrollers such as ATmega 8, 128, 328 will not be accepted due to their obvious link with the Arduino platform). We are looking for projects which the community can further build upon and which can be readily used in production environments.
All Projects must include a clear README file with straight-forward step-by-step instructions on how to implement them. Diagrams that explain how the sensors are connected to the hardware pins need to be provided where applicable.
Eligibility: We expect each project to include
