Please vote for your favourite video by Friday 15 September 2017

Since the launch of the IET Global Challenge, four finalists now remain in the competition and IET members are invited to vote for their favourite video. Voting is open until Friday 15 September 2017 and will count towards a proportion of the total score awarded by the competition judging panel.


A total of 40 teams from 12 countries took part in this year's IET Global Challenge, a competition organised by the IET Young Professionals Community Committee. This year's competition challenged young professionals to develop a solution to a real-world engineering problem that is often faced by Humanitarian Relief Agencies.


The competition scenario was developed in partnership with international NGO, RedR, and focused on developing a device that can accurately and actively gauge the load weight in a Toyota Land Cruiser or similar vehicle. NGOs often work off-road in challenging terrain and are reliant on vehicle fleets for day-to-day operations.


The final four teams were each asked to create a two-minute video to demonstrate their on-board device. All four videos are available to watch on the IET Engineering Communities platform and members are invited to vote for the video featuring their favourite concept. Please log into Engineering Communities to access the voting poll.


The winner will be announced on 29 September 2017. The winning team will receive a cash prize of £250 per person and will each be presented with their trophy and certificate at the IET Innovation Awards in London on 15 November 2017.
