About Intel® India Embedded Challenge
Intel Higher Education Program in collaboration with Embedded and Communication Group (ECG) of Intel Technology India Pvt. Ltd., proudly presents the Intel India Embedded Challenge 2010 – An Embedded design contest for students, interested individuals & entrepreneurs from all over India. This contest has been put forward to inspire the vast technically savvy community in India to architect, design and develop novel embedded applications in areas such as – Consumer electronics, Digital security surveillance, Medical, Storage & others.
The Proposed designs must be based on Intel® Atom™ Processors for embedded computing. Visit this link for more information: http://developer.intel.com/design/intarch/atom/index.htm. There are also range of application reference designs provided by Intel. In order to select the right platform you can also use the step-by-step guide by clicking on http://edc.intel.com/Step-by-Step/
There are two categories of participants – Student & Professional.
The student Category includes engineering students (UG/PG/PhD) and MBA students. Professional category includes all technical professionals interested in embedded. Faculties from academia can either participate in the students category with student teams or participate individually or in team of fellow faculties under the Professional category
As a first step a team of participants consisting of 1-4 individuals must submit the idea/abstract with as much details as possible. Based on the abstract, evaluators will shortlist projects. Once shortlisted, the participating team will be required to submit a detailed abstract. Based on the abstract, the evaluators will shortlist the projects to be considered as finalists.
The shortlisted finalists will get one of the Intel hardware platform free of cost based on their choice or based on evaluation by Intel. They can then continue to work on their prototype for the final contest. Intel India will also offer any guidance and help by assigning mentors for the projects.
The Intellectual Property (IP) rights will remain solely with the participants, with Intel having rights to publish the contest details. It is recommended that the participants take appropriate steps to protect their IP rights. Intel will not be responsible for misuse/loss of IP rights that may arise due to this contest.
