MicroPnP Awarded Third Place at the international IPSO Challenge for IoT Technologies

San Jose, CA, December 2nd, 2015 – The MicroPnP team of the imec- DistriNet research group at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) has been awarded third place in the international IPSO Challenge competition.

MicroPnP is a full software and hardware stack for the Internet-of-Things (IoT). The technology is based on best- of-breed standards coupled with an open architecture. MicroPnP offers simple, yet powerful APIs for application development, as well as run-time management and monitoring of deployed IoT infrastructure and applications.

MicroPnP supports rapid application development and deployment without the need for large infrastructure investment. The platform enables the creation of flexible Internet of Things (IoT) applications through plug-and- play customization. In a nutshell: MicroPnP is the Internet-of-Things (IoT) made easy.

The MicroPnP technology was demonstrated at the IPSO challenge in a smart building scenario, where the team was awarded third place. Semifinals and finals were organized at the Designers of Things (www.designersofthings.com) event in San Jose, California.
