Our good friends over at NXP partnered with us once again for the NXP Hackaton 2021. We were extremely happy with the number and quality of project submissions. With a wide variety of excellent, innovative projects, choosing just three winners proved a difficult task. Nevertheless, the winners have been selected!
And now, without further ado, our NXP Hackathon 2021 winners…
Faucet Running Alarm: In first place is an alarm that detects a running faucet. Brilliant maker Knaveen used an NXP i.MXRT1010 dev board and Edge Impulse Studio to build a device that initiates an alarm when the faucet is running. It's great for avoiding water damage or simply lowering your water bill.
Remote Patient Monitoring: The Internet of Things can greatly benefit healthcare. This remote patient monitoring system features the ability to monitor and track a patient's health status with vital information like blood pressure, weight, oxygen saturation, and temperature. Congrats to our second-place winner!
Reinforcement Learning-based Illumination Controller: And last but certainly not least is our third place contestant, MaverickBits with a neat system that adapts to the illumination preferences of its users. It leverages artificial intelligence and environmental sensing for a project that keeps learning and adapting to the preferences of its users. Rather than a closed-loop system, this project has an open-loop system for continued learning and adaptation.
Although these were the top three projects from the NXP Hackathon 2021, we received a ton of spectacular entries! Check out all of the NXP Hackathon 2021 projects. Congrats to our winners, a huge thank you to all of our participants, and a major shoutout to NXP for a fabulous hackathon!
