    The project aims at adding a new service to the IoT system able to

    Task 1
    1. Take a picture using the camera integrated in one node (based on the Espressif ESP32 esp idf SDK)
    2. Store the image in a local buffer
    3. Transfer the picture to another node of the mesh network (consider that the network has limited capacity and you cannot send directly a large file)

    Task 2
    1. Instead of just taking the picture and send it, perform an analysis of the picture using TensorFlow and detect humans
    2. Just send the subset of the picture that include humans.

    Task 3
    1. Take the picture, send to another node
    2. send the data via USB to a PC and build the received image
    3. Take the picture, send the data via USB to a PC and build the image

    New RFID tags allow the seamless integration into textiles, e.g. for tracking. In this way, for example, a scan can indicate in advance how the laundry should be treated, the number of items can be counted, or the origin of textiles can be determined. In this hackathon, participants can elaborate the use case of drapes & curtains and implement it prototypically. Besides software prototypes, this time the teams can also deal with hardware or textile design issues. According to the motto - hacking beyond.

    Precast concrete elements are produced on beds. For cost efficiency every single bed should be filled as much as possible.
    Challenge: develop an algorithm, that assign a set of elements (rectangles) to a minimal number of beds:

    • Beds have a rectangle shape with the same predefined dimension.

    • Beds are numbered 0, 1, 2, 3, … and will be produced in this order

    • Elements have a rectangle shape and can have different sizes

    • Elements are always smaller than the bed

    • Elements can be freely placed on the bed (x/y dimension) and can be rotated by 90°

    • The elements placed on a bed must not overlap or exceed the dimensions of the bed

    • Elements have a concrete quality; on a bed only elements with the same concrete quality can be placed • Elements are grouped to “stacks”. A stack is a numerical identifier 0, 1, 2, 3, …

    • At the same time only a predefined number of stacks can be “open”. A stack is opened by producing the first element and gets closed with the last one.

    Example 1: On bed #1 just one stack with 5 elements is produced => during production of bed #1 just one stack is open Example 2: 2 stacks: Stack #1 = 4 elements Stack #2 = 7 elements Production: Bed #1: 6 elements (4 x stack #1, 2 x stack #2) => 2 stacks are open Bed #2: 2 elements (2 x stack #2) => 1 stack is open Bed #3: 3 elements (all of stack #2) => 1 stack is open

    Person flow analysis

    Problem definition:

    As the owner of a store, I want to know more about my customers in order to better target my promotions. For this purpose, I would like to collect the time of access of my visitors as well as various metadata such as age groups and gender.


    Analyze and collect the available data from the camera and provide it to the business owner in a simple and understandable form. Check the accuracy of the data and give a percentage value for it so that this can be taken into account when the business owner evaluates the data. Be creative and try to extract as much information as possible from the data maybe also by combining it with other data sources
