So you want to apply for Program Rainbow?

Your chances to be accepted to the Program will be boosted if you have a working prototype in development.

The Program prefers couple applications which needs bi-directional communication between devices and the cloud.

Let’s check out some Projects that utilize MCS.

Weather Station

Weather Station is an example of IoT prototype that utilizes the LinkIt ONE development board to acquire temperature, humidity and pressure data from sensors. The data is then visualized on the MediaTek Cloud Sandbox (MCS).

See more detailed instruction and demo


Car GPS & Speed Tracking Device

Car Tracker utilizes the LinkIt ONE development board’s GNSS features to acquire the position and the speed of a vehicle. The data is then uploaded to the MediaTek Cloud Sandbox (MCS) over a GPRS connection. MCS then provides a visualization of the data on a map and records the route.
