“The Swedish Embedded Award has been created to showcase and demonstrate the endless possibilities of electronics.”

Class: Internet of Things...

...was won by LiU researchers Yu Liu, Kahin Akram Hassan, Adam Rohdin and Kahin Akram Hassan, with their contribution “Digitalization of Green Plant Wall”. The control of the wall of plants has been developed by the Communication Electronics group at LiU and recently visualised by the Information Visualisation group, MIT.

The jury’s celebratory sonnet:
To have your garden indoors on a wall
You might think you must be very tall
To water and tend it and care for it all
But no, the effort is very small
With Digitalized Green Plant Wall.

Class: Student for best contribution from students at a Swedish institution of higher education...

...was won by Sandra Pantzare and Elin Wollert, with their contribution “Smarthorse Lab”. Both have graduated from the Electronic Design programme, where they laid the foundation for their wireless sensor that measures the pressure under horse hooves. Development is continuing at RISE in the Printed Electronics Arena at LiU, Campus Norrköping.

The jury’s celebratory sonnet:
A racing horse you must protect 
From any kind of limping defect
With Smarthorse Lab you can inspect
The hoofs and any faults detect.

Category: Company...

...had two winners: Integrum AB and Chalmers University of Technology with “The Artificial Limb Controller, ALC”, and Neonode AB with “zForceAIR Sensor Module”.
