Contestants in this challenge were tasked with using one of our PSoC 6 and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Development Kits (CY8CPROTO-062-4343W or CY8CKIT-062-WIFI-BT) along with the ModusToolbox® Software Environment to build an IoT project and connect it to AWS IoT cloud services. After 20+ weeks of designing – researching – prototyping – programming and testing,142 blog posts, and 17 videos, this exiting design challenge has come to a close at the beginning of June. Judges from Element14, Cypress, and AWS have come together and picked the winners from a fantastic set of innovative project. Please see the winners below.
Super Smart Home by: balearicdynamics
Top Member, Enrico, won us over with his Super Smart Home Automation project, using the PSoC 6 MCU as a main hub to his AWS IoT powered Smart Home. Multiple sensor nodes were aggregated including: a door opener node, lighting node, alarm node, door bell node, etc. and then transmitted to AWS via Cypress Wi-Fi while the PSoC 6 drove a rich, graphical display UI.

Intelligent Mailbox by: Saicheong
Sai comes in second with their Smart Mailbox. This project would light up and inform you when a letter arrives, this passes the data over AWS to a telegram service, delivering through email or SMS. Sai even took the project further and trained a neural network with sounds of dogs playing and barking. This training this Smart Mailbox to know if a dog is barking aggressively and then to warn the mail carriers of this.

Below are the prizes the Grand Prize winner, Runner Up, and all “Finishers” (anyone who completes a project) will be getting for their efforts. In addition – all participants will be among the first to receive a free PSoC 64 Pioneer Kit once its available, to test out this new foundation for IoT Security.
