Berlin-based hardware accelerator AtomLeap is calling on all young European entrepreneurs and startups from the fields of sensory technology and the Internet of Things to apply to take part in its upcoming Collider Camp. Ideas that look to make a positive impact on the world are being sought with the team looking to make participants ‘investment ready’.
There is nothing like collaboration. The feeling of working towards a common goal with people who share your interests while receiving top notch input from experienced mentors is ample fuel to get the creative wheels turning. This is exactly the kind of framework that AtomLeap will use for its upcoming Collider Camp, where it looks to put eight teams through their paces and give them a platform to further their idea or business model.
Participants will convene in Berlin, Germany from 20 July to 12 September and will be provided with the space, tools and guidance to tinker with their concepts and develop prototypes. At the end of the eight weeks, four finalist teams will present their work to investors who have earmarked 200,000 EUR for development and will also present their prototype at booths at the Industry of Things World Conference, taking place in Berlin from 21 – 22 September 2015.
Sensors, Connectivity and the Internet of Things
Sensors and sensory technology play an increasingly important role in building a sustainable future. From everyday uses, such as switching lightbulbs on and off, to tracking wildlife, sensors offer huge potential in developing a smarter, greener world.
Likewise, the concept of the ‘Internet of Things’ (which focuses on connecting devices and transmitting or receiving data without human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction and relies heavily on sensory technology) is being touted as another technological trend that could assist sustainable development. There is already evidence to suggest that the Internet of Things can help reduce energy use; make workspaces greener; and promote more efficient forms of transport and mobility.
AtomLeap has chosen to focus on this field for its first Collider Camp in order to further investigate how sensors and the Internet of Things can help build smart digital societies and industries.
