ThingsCon Hackathon

Together with five fellow students, I participated in a hackthon organized by ThingsCon. The goal of the ThingsCon Hackathon was to design an IoT-related solution for a circular economy of the Bluecity building in Rotterdam. Our concept consisted of a smart system with physical controllers for the various offices in the building, contributing to more awareness regarding energy consumption. Our presentation was supported by an interactive prototype including speech recognition. Our concept was awarded with the first prize.
