CXA2010 winners announced

The results are out! Congratulations to Team The Dynamics from Nanyang Polytechnic for clinching the top prize with their Green Remote Estate Network (GREN) app. Their app allows the user to monitor and control electrical appliances remotely. GermaniumWeb was used to visualize the premises, which was simulated using the NUS School of Computing model. A CCTV feed was also integrated and displayed within GermaniumWeb, which allowed the user to see if the appliances were actually turned off.

In second place was Team Anjels with their Green Police application which features an impressive array of automated home appliances, which include lights and curtains. These appliances can be operated through an iPad, an Android phone, a web interface, and your good old physical switches. GermaniumWeb was used to show the current state of the appliances, for example darkening the room when the light was off.

Congratulations as well to Team berYL from Singapore Management University (SMU) in third place with their car drivers' tool, as well as to all finalists. Building a working app in 24 hours was no mean feat!
