CHALLENGE OUTPUT

Challenge Finalists must create a working, native mobile application that uses the FLIR Mobile SDK and includes features having to do with thermal imaging, using a qualified FLIR thermal camera and/or a qualified FLIR test and measurement device as defined on the FLIR Developer Program Mobile page at https://developer.flir.com (each an “Application”). 

CATEGORIES

Do-It-Yourself Home Repair & Energy Efficiency Applications.  Mobile applications designed to enable homeowners and/or building managers to build, maintain or repair residential or commercial buildings and maximize their energy efficiency through the use of thermal imaging.

Connected Industry Applications.  Mobile applications designed to enable an industrial operator/inspector to use thermal imaging in their business processes to operate more effectively or efficiently (example: an app that offers equipment condition monitoring and/or predictive failure/maintenance features to facilitate monitoring (electro)mechanical equipment to proactively identify equipment that has developed excess heat and take proactive action to avoid unscheduled repairs and downtime.)

Digital Utility Applications.  Mobile applications designed to improve the effectiveness and/or efficiency of energy production, management, and/or delivery at local, regional, national, or global levels (examples: an app that uses thermal imaging to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of a solar energy installation by identifying faulty or inefficient panels, or one that minimizes power grid downtime by identifying potentially failing equipment for proactive replacement that avoids unplanned outages.)

Connected First Responder Applications.  Mobile applications that enable first responders (law enforcement, firefighters, EMS providers, etc.) as individuals or groups to more effectively, efficiently, and safely do their work (examples: an app that enabled a team of firefighters to collectively see through smoke to identify hotspots in a fire to prioritize and address the most critical areas, or one that enables a team of law enforcement officers to operate more effectively and safely in dark/night-time situations.)

Wildcard Applications.  An application that doesn’t fit into one of the four main categories but uses thermal imaging in a unique and powerful way to solve a clearly identified consumer or business problem.  Wildcard apps are only eligible for the Grand Prize.

 

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS

Please provide your submission materials in English. Submissions in other languages won’t be accepted.

 

PLATFORMS

A submitted Application must be a native application that runs on a supported iOS or Android mobile device.  Applications may integrate other SDKs, APIs and data, provided the Participant is authorized to use them.

 

APP BUILDING (NEW & ALREADY EXISTING)

The App could be new but also already existing and therefore should be integrated with FLIR Thermal cameras.

 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Participants own the rights to the projects they create.

 

JUDGING

A panel of Judges both from the Sponsor and Prize provider will evaluate every project considering the following criteria:

 

  1. How effectively the idea/solution addresses issues related to one of the four identified scenarios using FLIR technologies or products to increase the value of the solution for the user,
  2. How technically feasible the solution would be to create and produce,
  3. How unique the idea/solution is and how it helps promote the usage of FLIR technologies or products, and
  4. How much short and long term revenue potential the idea represents and how feasible the proposed business model would be to implement. 

 

JUDGES ARE NOT REQUIRED TO TEST THE APPLICATION AND MAY CHOOSE TO JUDGE BASED SOLELY ON THE TEXT DESCRIPTION, IMAGES AND VIDEO PROVIDED IN THE SUBMISSION.
