    Challenge Details

    What is Predix?

    The Predix platform is a cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for the Industrial Internet. The Predix platform provides tools, framework, guidelines, and best practices that enable you to create solutions to run industrial-scale analytics. As it connects machines, data, people, and other assets, the Predix platform uses leading technologies for distributed computing, big-data analytics, asset data management, and machine-to-machine communication. A comprehensive platform overview can be found here. If you have previously used or are familiar with other platforms-as-a-service (AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Heroku, IBM Bluemix), this should feel right at home.


    Requirements for this challenge

    Acme Zuber Inc. owns a fleet of cars, and need to store daily mileage data for each car. The company has decided to use Asset Data Service to store the details. The company will also need to see the Audit History of mileage changes made in various cars.


    They are interested in tracking in 3 things about each Car:

    Make = <String values>

    Year = <Year the car was purchased>

    Mileage = <Mileage provided by the to be updated Car on daily basis>


    Asset Data Service is used to create and store asset details. You can find more details here.


    Create and host an application to help the company achieve its goals.


    Important Note:

    Please remember to include your Topcoder handle in the Predix app, so we can identify your application.


    - A user should be able to add new “Car” records as new cars are purchased by the company.

    - A user should be able to update the existing “Car”  mileage.

    - The user should be able to see the Audit History for the changes made. (Audit history has to be explicitly enabled in the Asset Data Service.) Please check the steps here.���

    Hint: You will need to configure the Asset Data Model first. The Predix UI Toolkit will be handy in interacting with the APIs.


    A sample screen for the application is shown below. The UI is for demonstration purpose only. The actual UI is not important, as long as the application fulfills the stated requirements.


    Final Submission Guidelines

    1. Provide your application URL in a text file and upload in the challenge.
    2. Please include your Topcoder handle somewhere in the application URL
    3. You can use any language to build the application, as long it’s supported by Predix.

    Reliability Rating and Bonus

    For challenges that have a reliability bonus, the bonus depends on the reliability rating at the moment of registration for that project. A participant with no previous projects is considered to have no reliability rating, and therefore gets no bonus. Reliability bonus does not apply to Digital Run winnings. Since reliability rating is based on the past 15 projects, it can only have 15 discrete values.
