*What is this Competition?*

The 2nd student design competition on Networked Computing on the Edge
<> will be held at the CPS-IoT Week
<> in May 2022. This competition
invites student teams of all levels to develop and demonstrate innovative
projects on the topic of networked computing for edge applications.
Projects of integrated computing, control, and communication components on
the ground, underwater or air mobile platforms are welcomed. Topics of
interest include but are not limited to unmanned aerial vehicle networks,
urban aerial mobility, autonomous driving, edge computing, and
human-machine interfaces.


Teams must develop solutions using embedded platforms of advanced computing
capabilities. Each team should consist of no more than five members
including faculty mentors. The organizers can provide embedded hardware
solutions built on Jetson TX2 and related hardware and software technical
support to participating teams.

*Submission Guidelines:*

· Teams are required to submit a project proposal including project
title, abstract, team members and advisor(s) to to
