In December 2015, XPRIZE announced that the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE has been officially extended through early 2017, providing the finalist teams with additional time to make adjustments to their tricorder devices to ensure they can succeed in the competition.

This new schedule will allow us to support the teams as they further perfect their tricorders, and will ensure their prototypes are tested and viable before they enter the final phase of the competition.

Qualifying Round

The Requalifying Round will take place from December 2015 through August 2016. From the Requalifying Round, teams will advance based on:

  1. (a) a controlled demonstration of sensor validity; and
  2. (b) an evaluation of supporting studies, conducted independently by each team.

Final Round

The Final Round is scheduled to occur from September 2016 through early 2017.  The Final Round competition will include:

  1. (a) a diagnostic competition on 20-39 consumers per team;
  2. (b) a vital signs competition;
  3. (c) a concurrent consumer experience evaluation; and
  4. (d) proof of adequate high-frequency data logging.

Teams advancing to the Final Round will compete in both the diagnostic, vital signs, and consumer experience evaluation portions of the competition.
