  1. Do I need to have any specific qualifications to be a participant for the Grand India IoT Innovation Challenge (giiotic)? This season of giiotic is open to select campuses. Please check the list of campuses here, before you apply to participate.

  2. What are the technologies I must know, to participate in giiotic? The contest uses LoRa as the network technology. Participating teams will be given Raspberry Pi kits to build a solution leveraging LoRa and Tata Communications’ IoT platform. You may use any language to code your application, and leverage on sensors available in the market or your labs

  3. What is Tata Communications’ IoT Platform? Relax. We will give the participants APIs to connect to the platform. Data from the sensors you will deploy as part of the solution is aggregated on the IoT Platform.

  4. Do I need to pay any money to register for the Grand India IoT Innovation Challenge? No. You do not have to pay anything to anyone to register yourself for any contest on HackerEarth.

  5. What and how do I submit what I have made for giiotic? Please refer to “Challenge format” section of the contest page

  6. Do we need to have the entire idea fully working? Your prototype must be able to demonstate the IoT solution without any major glitches, during the assessment in phase 2 and physical event in Phase 3.

  7. How is the environment? Will your environment support any language? Will you provide any IDE and DB for us to work on ideas? You have to develop the entire software application on your local system and submit it on HackerEarth in tar/zip file format along with instructions to run the application and source code.

  8. Since there is no specific technology mentioned to develop the application, are there any restrictions on using number of pre-built libraries? There is no restriction to use any language, technology stack, or libraries. You can use any of them to create the web/mobile application.

  9. Do I need to give a demo for the product that I have built? If you want you can submit a small presentation or video that demos your submission, however it's not mandatory, and only good to have. In case you are one of the winners, you might be invited to demo your application at a physical event, details of which will be shared with sufficient advance notice.

  10. A fully developed application need to have a solid backend for data storage like SQL, SharePoint etc. since its online, is it accepted to show only the proto type of it? Yes it's absolutely fine to submit just the prototype. If you use any database like MySQL or PostgresSQL you can also submit a database dump along with your submission. However you are allowed to submit just the prototype.

  11. If it is a team submission, does that mean all team members will have access to work at the same time? Yes, all team members can login from their account and do application submission on HackerEarth.

  12. Who will own the IP(Intellectual Property) Rights to the product that I have built? You will own the IP

13.How do I build my team? Upon registration, lick on "View Team" on the portal, you will be redirected to your team description and you an invite your peers in college to join by clicking "Invite teammates by email" on the top panel, enter the email ID and hit "Invite" button.
