Shield-X Launch

  • CORE Innovation Hub 191 St George's Terrace Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

Can a collaboration between industry and innovators produce a new approach to safety?

 Join us for the launch of the Shield-X Challenge, a week long hardware hackathon kicking off at CORE and open to participants from across the globe.

Shield-X is Unearthed’s first online hardware hackathon. Participants are challenged to design and prototype a 'Safe-Stop' wearable PPE device for autonomous mining equipment, with the chance to win over $20,000 in cash and attend a technology workshop with the Shield-X partners to assess their design.

Participants can submit their prototypes from anywhere around the world with space available for prototyping here in Perth at CORE.

Learn more at the Shield-X Launch event and network with the heads of technology of our global industry partners BHP Billiton, Barrick Gold, Caterpillar and find out why they are involved with this challenge.
