Winner Prize:5,000-10,000CNY
> Rules
Contestants should detect the pinhole cameras with automatic device created by DIY, and submit detailed design documents. It is forbidden to completely use the existing business products. If the contest judges believe the contestant’s device is not DIY , lacking customization or optimization, the judges have the right to cancel contestant’s qualification or contest result.。

Competition Forms

 The order of contestants is determined by drawing lots. Each contestant has 10 minutes. The round of contest is over when contest time is up to 10 minutes.During the contest, the other contestants are separated and unable to watch the condition of the contest field.To guarantee the automatic detection result and avoid possible impact of human factors, contestant is not allowed to touch detection tool and the cover curtain directly. The detection tool is taken into the room by assistant referee. The contestant can enter the room to watch the output of detection tool, and ask the assistant referee to take simple actions.

The simple actions allowed are:

● Move the detection tool to specified location.

● Change working mode of detection tool by pushing switch or button on it.

The detection result can be submitted in the following 2 ways:

● The detection tool should automatically save the detection results like MAC address to a text file, which will be exported by the assistant referee and submitted to the judges.

● The contestant may watch the output of detection tool and determine the possible location of pinhole camera under the cover curtain, and report the location number to assistant referee. Meanwhile the contestant may take picture with cellphone on the output of detection tool, send it to the assistant referee as judgement evidence.

Contestant should submit the detection result immediately when the contest is over. With all detection results submitted, judges will take review and determine the competing result.

Contest Field

The contest field is a closed room with area about 25 square meters (hereinafter referred to as “the room”), like bedroom, hotel room, meeting room decorated with different things, for example desk, chair, socket, remote, books etc.

There are several pinhole cameras hidden in the things of the room (number TBD) as detection targets. To avoid impact of human experience factor, all things in the room are covered with curtain. The positions of things are labeled with numbers at the corresponding part of curtain.

The pinhole cameras work in different modes including always powered on, turned on at fixed time, WIFI supported (AP mode and client mode), frequency hopping, no WIFI but SD card supported etc.

There may be different signals in the room, like mobile signals, signals of pinhole cameras, WIFI signals for contest support, signals of television camera, and signals from other possible sources.

> Evaluation

The contest judges will mark points based on the detection result (MAC addresses, locations etc.), as well as detection accuracy, difficulty, and technical merit.

Contestants with specific total points (TBD) will be qualified for awarding.

Contestants are ranked by total points. If there is a tie in total points, the ranking will be determined by points in the order of mappings, locations, and MAC addresses.

There will be the 1st, 2nd,3rd prizes and winner prize, based on the contestant’s total points and ranking. Award criteria details will be revealed in future version of this document.
