If you are an embedded/electronics developer or you are using Grove modules then there is exciting news for you. Recently I visited Seeed blog and I found a campaign for all of you! I have some questions for you like Do you still find it difficult to fulfill your project ideas using the existing 400+ Grove modules? Do you have a long-expected Grove module that we haven’t make it available? Want to realize your dream of developing your own Grove module? If your answer to these questions are all YES, here is the campaign for you!
To give back to Seeed community and make your great ideas a reality, Seeed Fusion is now launching the Grove Sensor Co-brand Campaign to help engineers turn your Grove designs into real products that will be available on our official store. Ignite Your Passion, Fire Your Thoughts, because you can develop your grove sensor with Seeed Fusion for a chance to win over $300USD cash prize.
What is Grove?
Grove is a modulated, ready-to-use tool set. It takes a building block approach to assemble electronics. Compared with the traditional, complicated learning method of using a breadboard and various electronic components to assemble a project, Grove simplifies the learning process significantly. The Grove System consists of a base shield and various modules with standardized connectors. The base shield allows for easy connection of any microprocessor input or output from the Grove modules, and every Grove modules addresses a single function, such as a simple button or a more complex sensor. Each one comes with clear documentation and demo code to help you get started quickly.
Features of Grove
- Uniform Interface, plug-and-play, no soldering required.
- Perfect for prototyping.
- Detailed documentation, electronics background is not required.
- Affordable for everyone.
- Various function modules including display, motion detect, communication, environment, and robot.
If you don’t know about Grove or you have some Questions like “How Grove functions” or Introduction of Grove or How make project with grove then please visit this page : Getting started with Grove
Currently, Seeed Studio has developed over 400 Grove modules ranging from sensors, LEDs, inputs, wireless, displays, actuators, breakouts, kits, and accessories, making the Grove ecosystem one of the most successful hardware development platforms. Grove sensors include a wide range of offerings that fit into the categories of environmental monitoring, motion sensing, user interface, physical monitoring, logic gate, or power. It allows users of all levels and backgrounds to explore and develop custom solutions to real-life problems both large and small.
Turn your sparkling new ideas into real Grove Sensors!
As we know, Grove supports Cross-Platform Support. It means that Grove is now compatible with most development platforms including Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone and more! It has Rapid Prototyping process. It means that Grove makes it easier to connect, experiment, and simplify the prototyping process. Let’s Start a project with your favorite one.
In order to give back to seeed community and make your great ideas a reality, Seeed Fusion are launching the Grove Sensor Co-brand Campaign to help engineers turn their Grove designs into real products that the community can purchase.
If your design is selected by us and the designer is happy to license the product to Seeed for manufacture and sale, then we will produce your Grove Modules Design at Seeed Fusion and make it available via Seeed Bazaar. After providing specific software documentation and Getting Started instructions, the designers will receive the payment over $300USD directly from Seeed Fusion.
How to enter the Grove Sensor Co-Design Campaign?
It’s very simple. Please fill out the form: https://forms.gle/xdiYZju3SNH224MD6 for Grove Sensor Design proposal.
Each person is limited to two PCBA boards 100% completely FREE for one Grove design, including PCB fabrication, the cost of parts, assembly and free worldwide delivery.
Then, please prepare your BOM File & then Contact Fusion team support ([email protected]) to apply for a Cash Coupon for settlement!
What can you benefit from the Co-Brand Grove Sensors Program?
You can get $300USD Cash Prize & Sell your Grove Sensors on Seeed Bazaar!
Win an easy $50USD cash prize
When you receive the Grove prototype from Seeed Fusion and publish your grove design on your own platform, Seeed will share your design on all Seeed Studio social media (Twitter, Facebook, linkedin, Discord & Hackster Project Hub). If more than 20 people like your design and express the interest in purchasing the product, the original designer will win a $50USD cash prize.
Over $300USD Cash Prize waiting for you
If your Grove Sensor design is finally selected by Seeed Fusion and we’ll decide to co-produce it, the designer may license the product to Seeed for manufacture and sale, At the same time, the designer should also provide the Arduino, Raspberry PI or Micropython software library and the Getting Started article [for Specific software documentation requirements & examples].
Designers can choose to get a one-time cash payment more than $300, it depends on the margin of the Grove.
Alternatively, you may choose to take a share of subsequent sales, monthly or quarterly (usually 50% of the gross profit of the product). The merchant of the product will give credit to the designer. In addition, if the board is qualified, the designer can directly brand your own personalized ID on the board and sell it on Seeed Bazaar.
Special Note: This table is a list of the Grove Sensors are working on by some designers from Seeed community right now – to avoid duplication, you can skip the following Grove Sensors. Seeed will synchronize the manufacturing process every two weeks for all the designers who are participating in the 2022 Grove Sensor Co-Design event.
What kind of Grove sensors do Seeed prefer to see?
Co-brand Grove Sensor they are looking for:
- Grove Sensors for the environment – to monitor the health of the environment or to be used with the SenseCAP series of industrial sensors
- A significant improvement over existing Seeed Studio Grove Sensors (in terms of both performance and cost)
- Grove Sensors implementing the latest technologies
Ignite Your Passion, Fire Your Thoughts, because you can develop your grove sensor with Seeed Fusion for a chance to win over $300USD cash prize. Don’t miss this opportunity and make your design a reality!
