The Hackathon on IoT: New digital horizon organized under the DISRUPTIVE project has been a success. It was attended by four teams that solved challenges and proposed interesting solutions related to the Internet of Things.

The competition ended with two teams being selected as winners because they stood out for their innovation, versatility and proposal development. "I use arch btw", was one of the winning teams, it proposed a solution for the regulation of capacity on city buses, by implementing sensors to count the number of users getting on and off and alerting the driver when there is a risk of exceeding the permitted capacity.

The team I use arch btw was formed by:

  • Pablo Pérez Rodríguez
  • Alberto Luengo
  • Julia Ruiperez de Brito
  • Gabriel D'Andrade Furlanetto

While the team "Little Max" presented a Smart Farm solution. An autonomous cattle feeding system that detected the presence of the animal to open the feed hopper gate which monitored the temperature, humidity and alcohol level in the feed with the aim of detecting if fermentation is taking place, which would be indicative of feed spoilage. It also monitored the amount of feed remaining, using an ultrasonic sensor to calculate the height of the feed and calculate the volume on the basis of the height of the feed and the dimensions of the silo. It also had a self-filling system implemented by means of a relay that activates a motor plugged into an auger. This activates automatically when it detects that the volume of feed in the hopper is low.

The solution also proposed the development of an App for smartwatch that would allow to visualize the remaining feed quantity, humidity and temperature, with a button to perform manual hopper filling.

  • Carlos Martín Rico
  • Alberto Pedro Cornejo Rodríguez

It has been an exciting day and we look forward to the next "Hackathon in Cybersecurity: IoT CTF based applications", organized jointly by researchers from the research groups BISITE and CeDRI (IPB - Instituto Politécnico de Bragança) within the DISRUPTUVE project.  The event will be held on March 25 from 9:00-18:00 at Edificio I+D+i, Salamanca - Spain.

In this hackathon, participants will be challenged in a Capture The Flag (CTF) competition to obtain and apply some basic security skills to solve different challenges related to the security aspects of IoT-based applications. 

The goal is to present some of the main cybersecurity aspects to support the development of more secure IoT-based applications. It will cover aspects related to cryptography, pentesting, web exploitation and forensics.
