1st Edition

In 2016, the idea of the Internet of Things Student Challenge was born.

The Organizing Committee of the IEEE International Conference on Automation, Quality and Testing, Robotics (AQTR) decided, with the 20th anniversary of its existence, to raise the stakes for the Automation Department students within the Faculty of Automation and Computer Science by organizing a competition focused on the experimental model and research.

29 students enrolled in 8 teams. The students' projects were presented at the AQTR conference and in front of the conference participants.
