Application Deadline: July 1st 2014
The TAHMO Sensor Design Competition, aimed specifically at the ECOWAS region. invite students, scholars, engineers and other tech-enthusiasts from ECOWAS-countries to join the TAHMO Sensor Design Competition.
The objective of the TAHMO Sensor Design Competition is to design innovative sensors that measure a weather or hydrological variable and are both inexpensive and robust. As well as resilient, low-maintenance and cost effective. For the design specifics please visit TAHMO.org.
The TAHMO project
Delft University of Technology and Oregon State University are running the Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) project. TAHMO’s aim is to design and build a dense network of 20,000 weather stations in Africa. The revolutionary low-cost, robust cell-phone based stations will aid in monitoring Africa’s environment; a necessity if the continent’s resources are to be optimally used. In order to do so, we need your help!
We ask you to come up with an innovative design for a sensor. This year the competition will be organized together with the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), Nigeria. Winners of the competition will be invited to Akure for a multiple day workshop to build, test, and integrate the designs.
• Please send in your design before July 1st, 2014
• Winning teams will be invited for the workshop in Akure on August 4th – 8th, 2014
