IPSO Alliance Announces Semi-finalists for IPSO Challenge 2015

Fremont, CA -- The Internet Protocol for Smart Object (IPSO) Alliance has selected the top 10 entries for the third annual IPSO CHALLENGE. Entries represented IoT/M2M innovations in industrial, medical, commercial manufacturing, agricultural, home, sports/fitness, environmental and IoT technology.

The next step towards winning the $10,000 grand prize is for semi-finalists to successfully build a prototype. A panel of experts will then evaluate each entry on its design, deployment, ease of use and marketability.

"It becomes more challenging each year to select the 10 IPSO CHALLENGE semi-finalists, reflecting the pace of innovation and adoption in the IoT," said Nick Ashworth, Engineering and Technology Director at Eaton and Chair of the IPSO CHALLENGE. "IPSO Alliance is proud to foster new companies and emerging products that have the potential to impact how we live and work."

Sponsored by Google and Atmel, with developmental technology donated by Freescale/ARM, Atmel, Intel, Micrium, Sigma Designs, STMicroelectronics, and Texas Instruments, the IPSO CHALLENGE is designed to provide a platform for emerging IoT and M2M technologies.
