Welcome to Applied Motion Product's Motion Control Design & Innovation Competition!
The deadline to submit a project for this contest was February 13, 2015.
Check this page again in May to see who wins!
Teams will receive $1000 in store credit to use in the Applied Motion Products web store. Each small group team will create a 5-10 minute YouTube video highlighting their implementation of products from Applied Motion in a motion control application. This is an opportunity to be incredibly creative! (Have an idea for a cool ping pong ball launcher? A camera that can track an object? A unique micro mouse? We challenge you to be as innovative as possible.)
Videos will be submitted to Applied Motion for judging to determine the winning team. The winning video will be featured on our blog and YouTube channel, and the winning team will be honored with a cash prize and – most importantly – bragging rights for one full year.
Applicants must enter by Friday, February 13 and videos must post by Friday, May 1 – winners will be announced on May 15, 2015.
Upon submiting an entry form, an Applied Motion Products representative will follow up with you to confirm if your team has been selected as a participant in this competition. Once selected, a team member will need to set up a customer account on our website and we will issue a $1000 credit to that account. Applied Motion Products reserves the right to limit entrants and to turn down applications. By entering, participants are agreeing to complete competition (including YouTube video entry - see Video Requirements below). If a team chooses to drop out of the competition for any reason, that team acknowledges that the $1000 store credit will be revoked and that products already shipped must be purchased (at Applied Motion's standard university discount of 40% off listed website price) out of pocket.
Prize Details: $5000 for 1st place, $2000 for 2nd place
Projects will be judged out of 75 points based on this grading scale:
