Important information (new for iCAN 2021)! The sensor giant ST Microelectronics has generously agreed to provide a limited number of SensorTile.box kits for iCAN Switzerland projets. Although teams are not required to use this kit for a project, you would be highly encouraged to do so. The SensorTile.box is basically a mobile platform packed full of ST sensors for sensing motion and the environment. Data is easily accessible vie Bluetooth and thus can easily serve as a “sensor brain” for an unlimited number of applications. More information is here.
