On the 22nd to 24th of April developers from around the world came to Stpln, Malmö, to participate in the Nordic Internet of Things Hackathon 2016.
Two winning team were awarded, one for each track:
- Winners of the Intelligent Healthcare Establishments track was a mixed team from Germany, USA and Canada: Re-Empower. Their idea was based on the fact that the population of western nations ages which leads to the rise of illnesses such as Alzheimer's
and Dementia. More and more cases of conditions that can severely limit a patient’s quality of life are being diagnosed each day, placing a large burden on spouses, families and caregivers.
- Winning the Intelligent Buildings track were the same team that won last years track on Smart Homes: Invisual from Russia. Invisual created a solution that based on the data from people presence sensors can highlight windows that are most suitable
for a rescue team to enter the building. In case of people trapped inside the building internal light system could be used for routing of rescuers. The system can show the firefighters whether
there are people left in their building, where they can be found, and how to access the building.
