Sensor Competition
18 October 2017

Are you eager to put your engineering knowledge to use? Our Student sensor competition can provide technical support  to develop a new product and win a £5000 cash prize.

Electricity network operators like Western Power Distribution need more network data to cope with new challenges like electric vehicle charging. Existing monitoring systems are too expensive to use widely.

The aim of this competition is to develop new approaches to substation monitoring.

Entries may be entirely new methods of measuring and recording substation condition or use existing devices in new ways, but must show novelty beyond what is currently available.

The competition is open to all taught students studying at UK universities. The closing date for shortlisting of concepts is 16th February 2018 and for the final award is 29th June 2018

The UK Universities Student Sensor Competition is operated under the DEDUCE (Determining Electricity Demand Using Consumer Electronics) project by Loughborough University for Western Power Distribution (WPD).
