Design Contest on IMU for Engineering Students from Digi-Key and STM

Digi-Key Corporation, distributor of electronic components, and STMicroelectronics, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) supplier, have announced a design contest based on ST’s iNEMO™ multi-sensor inertial measurement unit (IMU), for engineering students.

This design contest aims at educating the engineering students about the ways in which sensors can improve their projects. Designs for the contest can cover applications from a wide variety of fields such as robotics, man/machine interfaces, navigation, remote monitoring (of industrial equipment or medical patients), gaming and sports and many more.

iNEMO is an excellent tool for evaluation and development and features such as state-of-the-art software, a 32-bit micro-controller, sensors for linear, magnetic and angular motion sensing in three axes, temperature and barometer/altimeter readings arranged on a small development board.

The judgment of the novel design project containing an iNEMO IMU will be based on how many degrees of freedom (DoF) are used in the project, daughter board usage, hardware and software quality, and the user-friendliness of the project.

The winner will be awarded a total of $5,000 cash prize and a paid trip to the ST Development Labs in Catania, Sicily, Italy. Currently enrolled North American residents with a minimum age of 18 years are eligible to register for participation by October 30, 2010. Registered entrants should purchase an iNEMo kit worth $369. Applications are accepted till 30th April 2011 and winners will be declared by July 2011.
