ST Innovation Challenge

powered by


The ST Innovation Challenge powered by STMicroelectronics taking place during the 16th edition of the Innovation World Cup® brings together developers, founders, and innovative SMEs from around the world to design Industry 4.0 applications, such as condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. Are you currently building, or planning to build, a sensor-to-cloud industrial IoT application? Submit your solution to the ST Innovation Challenge and take advantage of ST’s and company partners’ expertise to move forward with your design. Combined with the Machine Learning Core and STM32Cube.AI ecosystem, the STWIN kit (SensorTile Wireless Industrial Node) will enable you to add advanced Machine Learning capabilities to your design. The STWIN kit measures vibration thanks to vibration sensors and microphone motion, as well as temperature and other environmental data to help you take your DeepTech and IoT solution to the next level!
