Shackle Load Monitoring Design Challenge

The PHM Society has announced a design challenge for load monitoring of shackles. The challenge is open to everyone. Cash prizes will be offered
to winners. Deadline for submissions is October 10, 2015. A summary is provided below. More details may be found at

In this design challenge, you will design a new wireless load measurement system for industrial pin shackles (typical load capacities are on the order of 5-10 tons). We are asking you to think outside the box and design a system that advances the state-of-the-art in this area.
