As you all know, each team will have (an equivalent of) about 15 minutes for presentation, 15 minutes for demonstration and 15 minutes for interaction – in all up to about 45 minutes.

Please plan your presentations to introduce your idea, indicate how you went about realizing it, what results are achieved and what’s the next phase. Presentation guidelines are as below:

  • Good to keep it less verbose, more illustrative, with engineering details
  • It’s teams’ call as to who will present, what and how
  • Assessment of each team WILL INCLUDE their presentation performance
  • Presentation structure guidelines:
    • SLIDE 1: Title with Students, Mentor, Institution Names

    • SLIDE 5: Stakeholder Validation (How competitive is the solution offering? Who is the likely customer, target market, why will they pay for this, did you interact with them)
    • SLIDE 6: Engineering Details – Architecture, Design partitioning – HW, SW, System (HOW the Solution is built)
    • SLIDE 7: Implementation – What HW platform used, What SW platform, Why? How?  Issues faced, resolved, learning (HOW the solution is realized)
    • SLIDE 8: Validation – How the design does what it is supposed to do (Approach, Process, Results)
