Recently, the “Edison Cup” Students Industrial Design Competition has highlighted the ongoing Shanghai Design Biennial. This competition is jointly held by the Shanghai foreign exchange center of science and technology, GE and UnionThai. Student teams from Fudan University, East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai Second Polytechnic University and Shanghai DianJi University will design and produce their most creative works in this year’s design biennial and compete for the final award.
This competition contains two parts. The first part is the intelligent street light industrial design based on the industrial Internet of Things. The other part is the remote management web design for the intelligent street lights. This competition aims to arouse university students’ passion and interest in intelligent city design and help them discover their potential in industrial design.
Before handing designs into the competition’s judging panel, the contest submissions will be 3D printed on Union Thai SLA industrial 3D printers. The top three teams will be disclosed at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre on 3rd September.
