The winning team conceived an Advanced BMI solution, developing a more precise measure for the Body Mass Index by using computer vision and AI on the edge without compromising privacy. During the weekend, Aïcha, Mayank, Johnny, Lauri and Marvin created an affordable working prototype for body measurement as well as an app which displays the private data on a smartphone. Congratulations team!

Moritz, Tim, Nick, Timo, and Philipp 3D-printed a small, low-power IoT device which also works as an offline solution without WiFi. It is worn by firefighters and provides visuals and real-time sensor readings, incl. toxic gases. This data can be seen in FEUERMAP, a live heatmap. Well done, FEUER-team!

Congratulations to Bonnie, András, Máté, Grzegorz, and Leonard with their Drowning Detection System for the shared 3rd Place! Their solution will extend and complement the capabilities of lifeguards. Semi-automatic drones will be patrolling a beach coast with a stereo camera, which utilizes visualization on the edge with gesture detection and localization features.

The Stata Mater – Intelligent Wildfire Prevention Platform trained intelligent cameras to look for and identify risky vegetation. The data are visualized by an app that shows active risks and offers recommendations on how to solve them. Their initial customers will be insurers who will reward property owners if they install the camera and act by the recommendations. Congrats to Jhorman, Andrés, and Beatrice!
