Congratulations to the Eclipse Opent IoT Challenge 4.0 Winners:

Fourth place  Alya with their smart mirror solution and fifth place Cloud Oscilloscope also deserves a word of appraising. You guys rock! Read the complete write up by Eclipse her.

78 teams entered of which 15 teams submitted a final report. The winners have been selected by a panel of judges comprised of representatives from Bitreactive, CONTACT Software, Eurotech, Intel, Red Hat and Sierra Wireless.

This is the fourth time Bitreactive has been one of the Eclipse IoT Challenge sponsors which means we follow the competitors through their progress from start to finish. Once again, this has been a fun learning experience and I am so impressed with the creativity, innovation and amount of work the participants have put into their solutions.  The final grading is based on the level of the applicability to a specific industry,  completeness, use of open source technology and community involvement. Community involvement means that a great idea and final report alone cannot make up for the lack of sharing thoughts and ideas throughout the weeks of development.
