Over the next two months an international team of experts including employees of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), contest sponsors, and partners will review the ideas/prototypes and judge them on innovation, implementation and marketability. The resulting nine finalists will be presented to the public at MEDICA in Dusseldorf in November 2011 and online at innovationworldcup.com for evaluation and ranking.

“We are very excited about the caliber and scope of ideas and prototypes entered into this year’s competition,” said Michael Foley, Ph.D., executive director of the Bluetooth SIG. “With numerous Bluetooth v4.0 profiles already available and rapid adoption of the Bluetooth v4.0 profile into numerous hub devices, we are likely to see many of the IWC entries become market ready products soon.”

“As the title sponsor for the 2011 Bluetooth IWC, Texas Instruments is proud to play a role in Bluetooth technology v4.0 developments,” said Volker Prüller, marketing manager, Low-Power RF, TI. “More than 100 enthusiastic designers entered this year’s competition with prototypes based on TI’s development tools. We look forward to seeing what unique ideas these leaders dream up, and what opportunities will come to fruition as Bluetooth technology v4.0 proliferates in new markets.”
Throughout the competition, TI provided development kits at no cost or a discounted rate to more than 100 participants. Freescale Semiconductor gave out more than 100 Sensor Toolbox kits to encourage participants to combine sensor technologies with Bluetooth technology v4.0 low energy applications. Many of the products and prototypes submitted to this year’s competition build upon the combination of sensors and the Bluetooth v4.0 specification.

The Innovator of the Year award will be announced and presented at ispo in Munich, also in January 2012. The Innovator of the Year will receive prize money of USD 5,000 and a Bluetooth Qualification Program voucher worth up to USD 10,000, as well as an Ellisys Bluetooth protocol analyzer. Winners of the individual categories will be invited to Nordic Semiconductor’s headquarters in Trondheim, Norway for a special Bluetooth technology training.

Other sponsors include Ellisys, Freescale Semiconductor (as IWC’s preferred technology partner), Bluegiga, Nordic Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics and VARTA Microbattery.
