Intel® Embedded Systems Competition 2015


The Intel® Embedded Systems Competition 2015 was a competition open to undergraduate and graduate students, providing the opportunity to develop intelligent and innovative Systems and contribute to the evolution of this segment of Computing in Brazil.

The selected teams received an Altera DE2i-150 development board or an Intel® Galileo Gen 2 Board for the project preparation. Those who were competing on the previous year's Intel® Embedded Systems Competition and opted again for the Altera DE2i-150 could continue the project or start a new one.
Those who started a new project with the DE2i-150 were competing with ongoing projects from the year before.

During development, each team had to produce two reports: one “draft” that had to be delivered early and another “final” closer to the end of the project's development. Afterwards, the project had to be presented at SBESC, which was held between November 03-06.
