TCJ Smart City innovations 2017

Every year we challenge our university students to solve real world problems using their software development skills. This year, with our Smart City theme, we challenged teams to use artificial intelligence, sensors, augmented reality/virtual reality/ mixed reality and security in their solutions. They did not disappoint.

Here are some quick stats about Teleios Code Jam this year, we had:

  • 43 challenge submissions in Stage 1
  • 11 team presentations in Stage 2
  • 6 grand submissions in Stage 3
  • Coding languages used: C++, C#, JavaScript, Java & Python
  • Hardware used: PH Sensors, Cameras, Vibranium (not really) & Raspberry Pi devices
  • Platforms used: Tensor Flow, Firebase, Azure & other platforms

Six (6) teams made it all the way to Grand Submission. Here are some details about each team and the solutions they built.
