EETD researchers (pictured) Anna Liao, Daniel Olsen, and Andrew Weber, along with Robert Sadler, won the Grand Prize of the two-day event with their Smarter Sprinkler app, which combines open-source hardware and software to make an intelligent home irrigation schedule. Other winners included Greenvite, a green way to book conference rooms, and DashPower, which gives building managers more capabilities to control energy costs.
