Raspberry Pi has been named as one of this finalists for this year’s coveted MacRobert Award, the innovation prize awarded each year by the Royal Academy of Engineering.

The Raspberry Pi credit card-sized microcomputers is being used to inspire students to learn coding as well as becoming a IoT embedded systems development platform.

It will compete for the gold medal and £50,000 prize with Darktrace developer of a cyber ‘immune system’ that uses machine learning to self-learn what is ‘normal’ for an organisation’s computer network.

The third finalist is Vision RT for their technology that helps improve radiotherapy treatment.

The Vision RT technology provides real time feedback on a patient’s alignment before treatment and motion throughout, which is vital for ensuring that the patient is in the correct position.

The 2017 winner will be revealed at the Academy Awards Dinner in London on 29 June 2017 in front of an audience of top engineers, business leaders, politicians and journalists.

Previous MacRobert Award-winners include the Rolls-Royce Pegasus engine used in the iconic Harrier jets, the Severn Bridge and the first CT scanner developed at EMI.

MacRobert Award winners are chosen by a panel of Fellows of the Academy.
