IoT Innovation Challenge Finalist

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced the student finalists of the Keysight IoT Innovation Challenge, who receive an all-expenses paid trip to New York City to demonstrate their design ideas before a panel of esteemed judges at a live-streamed event to be held in September 2019.

The Keysight IoT Innovation Challenge is a design competition challenging graduate and undergraduate engineering students to conceptualize low-power sensor networks to tackle issues brought on by today's rapid urbanization. The contest has two tracks: the Smart Land challenge and the Smart Water challenge. Students submitted IoT sensor network ideas via online written and video submissions from April 1 – May 15, 2019. The competition attracted nearly 300 entries from around the world, with each entry scored by a panel of 15 semi-final judges on metrics such as innovation, manufacturability and impact. The general public also played a role in the judging by voting for their favorite design entries. These votes contributed to 10 percent of each entrant's overall score.

After a careful compilation of the judges scores and a tally of all popular votes, the Keysight IoT Innovation Challenge finalists are:
