IADT students in final of Intel Galileo 3rd Level Technology Competition
While the project didn’t win, the judges highly commended its commercial potential and innovative retro-fit design. Below are some pictures from the competition and the project.
IADT computing students Elias Kelly and Julia Faulstich (an Erasmus student from Stuttgart) showcased their ‘smart fridge’ project on Friday 8 April at the Science Gallery. It is one of top five projects using Intel technology entered for the Intel Galileo 3rd level Technology Competition.
Thanks to Joachim Pietsch and Conor Brennan for supporting the students during the Intel Internet of Things Galileo competition.
The project is a prototype “smart fridge” which can connect to the internet and send data such as the contents of your fridge, the temperature and how often the fridge is opened. Using RFID technology we can track food coming in and out of the fridge and once inside we can use weight sensors to track its usage. This data can then be viewed on a web application by a user in real time.
