As more submissions for the IoT Maker challenge flood in from across the globe, we’ve sketched out an idea from Vinicius Senger (@vsenger) in Brazil who suggested a smart helmet for bikers with EHS6, GPS, accelerometer and a camera.
This innovation would allow motorbike riders to get live feedback on how they’re riding based on data collected during the journey. A heads-up display could inform the rider of any traffic jams ahead or provide directions based on GPS mapping. Inventions always look better in blueprint don’t they?
Got an idea? There are a few very simple steps to enter:
- Come up with your own great idea for the next application of IoT or M2M technology. Whether you have a one sentence concept or a more detailed vision of the next great machine to machine implementation, we want to hear about it. If you have more than one idea, don’t worry – you can enter as many times as you like.
- Tell us about it! Submit your idea to us through whatever channel you prefer. Tweet it (including @gemalto and #IoTMaker), email it (to IoTMaker@gemalto.com), leave a comment on this blog post – it’s totally up to you.
- Do it before November 30th The contest entry deadline has been extended to 30th November, so get your entries in before then.
Update: The entry window for the IoT Maker challenge has now closed, stay tuned to the blog for more information.
