Clarification on deployment constraints

Hello tinyML 2022 organizers and participants,

I wanted to clarify the desired constraints for the device once it’s been deployed. How long is the device expected to last in environment without human maintenance and power supply (eg. 1 month, 1 year, 10 years)?

Furthermore, will there be an expectation the device is connected to a network, or will humans have to regularly collect data at intervals? In the latter case, how long are these intervals expected to be (eg. every week, month, year)?

Thank you

Hi Ziwen! Thank you for the two good questions. For both questions the answer is “around six months”. We want to gather enough data to be meaningful and we don’t want to replace the batteries too often. Of course if you can have a longer-lasting device that’s even better!
