Telit Wireless Solutions, an enabler of the global machine-to-machine (m2m) movement has announced the loT Big Data challenge in collaboration with Google Cloud Platform.

Developers are invited to create web-based and mobile applications based on data from a wide variety of connected sensors and devices, delivered to the Cloud by Telit’s m2mAIR Cloud application enablement platform, powered by deviceWISE.
Participants will use Google Cloud Platform to harvest the IoT data, to illustrate the power and simplicity of developing compelling IoT solutions that change the way people live, work and play. The IoT Big Data Challenge encourages developers to submit innovative applications with the broadest possible scope and purpose – from the practical, to the clever, to the totally unexpected.
Categories include Business transformation, Healthy and happy living and the good of mankind. Participants will be judged on Innovation, Potenial Commercial Impact and Scalability, Best use of Telit data and GCP developer resources, look, feel and entertainment value.
