Eclipse IoT Announce Winners of Open IoT Developer Challenge

Ottawa, Canada – March 10, 2016 – The Eclipse Foundation is pleased to announce the winners of the Open IoT Developer Challenge, an annual challenge to promote the use of open source and open standards in IoT solutions. The winners of the Challenge are:

  • 1st place: IoT Vaidya, an IoT solution for remote patient monitoring in rural areas. IoT Vaidya allows for a patient located in a rural area to self-attach open hardware sensors and monitors that send information to a doctor in a different location.
  • 2nd place: Atta, a simulator of connected things and gateways. It provides a way to describe IoT simulation scenarios using a domain-specific language, and to execute the simulations. It supports the open IoT protocols MQTT and CoAP.
  • 3rd place: MoDeS (Model-Based Demonstrator of Smart and Safe Systems) has implemented an IoT robot controller as well as a railway system. The goal was to demonstrate how modeling, verification, and validation techniques can be used for IoT.

The Open IoT Developer Challenge is an annual challenge organized by the Eclipse IoT Working Group and sponsored by bitreactive, Eurotech, MicroEJ, Red Hat, and Zolertia. Participants are given three months to create an IoT solution using open source software and open standards. The winners were selected by a panel of judges, who evaluate the participating solutions based on innovation, completeness, use of open source and open standards, and communication with the larger community.

The Eclipse IoT Working Group is an open source community building software frameworks and runtimes required for creating IoT solutions. Eclipse IoT includes over 20 open source projects and 30 member organizations that are collaborating on a common vision of building IoT solutions based on open source and open standards.
