Take Part in the Largest IoT Ecosystem EdgeX Hackathon!

We are excited to announce that LF Edge’s EdgeX Foundry community is planning a series of hackathons focused on addressing real-world use cases. 

As one of the sponsors, IOTech would like to invite you to join.

Location: Tech Nexus in Chicago 

Time: October 8, 2019

Participants: Developers from students to retail end-users and technology solution providers.

The event will focus on the retail market and work stemmed from the Commerce (e.g. Retail) Working Group within the EdgeX Foundry project and the related Open Retail Initiative (ORI).

Participants will use their talents and creativity combined with the EdgeX framework, commercial content from sponsoring companies and the rules of the event to develop a solution for either one of the specified customer-valued retail use-cases or an additional open category.

EdgeX Open Categories:

  • Advanced loss prevention – Leverage EdgeX to correlate computer vision events with telemetry from sensors such as RFID and transaction logs data from Point-of-Sale systems for improved loss prevention/theft detection
  • Dynamic personalized retail experience – Take computer vision and sensor data to drive a better in-store customer experience based on individual shopper preference
  • Inventory management – Use data from sensors and scanners (hand-held and/or drone-based) to improve inventory accuracy
  • Open category – Get creative and take your pick of a retail-centric use case! Just make sure it would be deemed valuable by end-users
