EWSN 2016

International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks

February 15. – 17. 2016, TU Graz, Austria

Dependability Competition

[NEW!] The competition is over after three days of real fun! Thank you to all contestants for their efforts and for providing such a great atmosphere. Each of the competing teams has been evaluated over the same 35-minutes experiment (576 LED status changes) during Monday's session. 


The results and awards have been presented on Tuesday morning during a plenary dedicated dependability competition session. The awarded teams are summarized in the table below. Because of the tiny difference among the first five teams, the organizers have also provided an award for the 4th place. 

The winner of the EWSN 2016 dependability competition is Team #4 (RedFixHop)!
