  • $1.5M RISE Coastal Community Resilience Challenge.


    Brinc Partners with RISE Resilience on $1.5M Coastal City Community Challenge

    With global average sea level's rising and climate change leading to more frequent and extreme weather events, Brinc and RISE have come together to help advocate innovative solutions regarding these issues. Read more about the partnership here.

    Focus Areas
    Challenge is described in detail here. In summary, Coastal Communities seek innovative solutions for the following:

    • Flood management and infrastructure: management of ground-storm-and/or tidal water, either as affordable short-term mitigations, or low-maintenance, longer-term options in a variety of environments with high water tables.

    • Protection of buildings: maintaining the viability of existing buildings facing different levels of flooding.

    • Data analytics: improving the ability to more effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptions.

    • Re-establishing critical utilities: re-establishing and maintaining functionality of critical systems after an acute event to prevent cascading failures and degradation in the resilience of a community.

    The 12-month challenge will help support founders who are solving problems that are enhancing the resilience of coastal communities. Upon joining the challenge, startups will receive revenue-based loans and grants of up to $350,000 USD. Additionally, RISE provides a fabrication facility, co-working space, real-world pilot and testing sites, technical, governmental, & business mentors, investor matchmaking, a customized curriculum, and on-going support to get your startup to the next level.

  • Anyone worked with Industrial-grade Carbon Monoxide Sensor!

    Hi, I was looking for a reliable carbon monoxide sensor, I tried the MQ7 sensor, but it has a preheat time of 48 hours and a sensitivity range from 20ppm-2000ppm, and my application requires 1ppm to 1000ppm. let me know if anyone working with a similar sensor or use case!

    Update: Found that SPEC 3SP_CO_1000 Package 110-102 have 0 to 1,000 ppm sensitivity range and < 100 ppb reseultion, if anyone worked with the sensor let me know. Thanks.

  • RE: The Raspberry Pi Pico

    @vishnumaiea I agree, they did an incredible job in the making of this product and, it looks like a perfect board for the maker/student/artist who wants to build project and learn stuff, they released all the docs, SDK, kit's even a book too.

    I believe the perfect MCU depends on the application and price range so that actually works well in RP2040 latest for hobby maker I think, I not stating this is perfect MCU but it can make a big effect in maker market like Arduino UNO.

    @vishnumaiea said in The Raspberry Pi Pico:

    Since RPi is from UK they must have also been able to make a better deal with ARM, which is also from UK
