We were running a competition during Embedded World 2019 to give one lucky maker a free Otii.
To enter, hopefuls had to simply share the competition on social media and answer a few short questions about their battery checking habits.
We were really keen to find out what tools and methods industry professionals use for energy optimization in IoT R&D, what is generally considered an average battery life, or whether battery is even considered to be a problem in IoT device development.
The results are in! Here’s a big thanks to everyone who participated, helped spread the word, and made the contest a big success.
And a special congratulations to winner Scott Waller, who has bagged himself free Otii!
With friend Andrew, Scott co-founded his company Thingy out of a garage where they started tinkering with electronics and looked for scalable solutions to problems facing the IoT vertical.
Combined, the pair have over 50 years of experience building telecommunications systems, embedded platforms, and environmental sensor networks but now focus on design, development, and production of environmental real-time data acquisition and telemetry systems.
Thingy focuses on low-power and low-cost IoT connectivity, and new applications to solve unique challenges with a particular interest in solving data transferring challenges for devices in remote areas.
We’re excited to see how Scott, who emerged as the winner via random selection, puts Otii to use and are sure the tool will help him achieve his goals.
