Not only would this be a great incentive to learn about embedded systems, but there are also some great prizes!

This could be a great group project that could be around:

  • home automation
  • lighting/sound/stage effects
  • machine control
  • robot (automated photogrammetry robot?)

Reply below if you’re interested in doing this as a group project, and what you’d like to build!

I suggest weekly sessions, with a write up, photos, and video, being done as part of each session to fulfill the contest requirements.
