Winners of Open IoT Challenge

The Eclipse IoT community announced the winners of the third Open IoT Challenge, a developer challenge to promote the use of open source and open standards in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. The panel of judges for this competition were from Bosch, Eurotech, Red Hat, and others.

The competitors used several Eclipse Foundation IoT projects, showing their appeal to IoT developers.

The winners of the this year’s challenge are:


An application to analyze and monitor sleep patterns of people affected by bipolar disorder to improve the therapeutic approach, react, and adapt the treatment faster. The solution was built using an off-the-shelf sleep monitor, Raspberry Pi, Eclipse Vert.x, and Warp 10.

krishi IoT

A solution to help farmers execute agricultural operations in a smarter and efficient way. It includes smart sensors, a gateway device with GSM-based Internet connectivity, a mobile app, and a web app. krishi IoT devices retrieve the sensor parameters and relays the information to local krishi IoT gateway. The solutions use many Eclipse projects including Vorto, Paho, Mosquitto, Kura, Kapua, and Hono and well as IBM Bluemix, Cloudfoundry, IBM Bluemix, and Bitreactive’s Reactive Blocks.


Residential Home Diagnostics System (RHDS) is smart energy IoT solution that performs home diagnostics for residents. The solution uses three Eclipse projects: Kura, Leshan, and Wakaama as well as open protocols such as MQTT, CoAP, LWM2M, among other technology.

About Eclipse IoT and Eclipse Foundation

The Eclipse IoT Working Group is a collaborative working group hosted by the Eclipse Foundation, which is working to create open source software for IoT solutions. Eclipse IoT is made up of over 30 member companies and 28 open source projects.

Eclipse is a community for individuals and organizations who wish to collaborate on open source software. There are over 300 open source projects in the Eclipse community, ranging from tools for software developers, geospatial technology, system engineering and embedded development tools, frameworks for IoT solutions, tools for scientific research, and much more. The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation that is the steward of the Eclipse community. More information is available at
