Developing a Smart Greenhouse: EPAM Wins Oracle Prize
To take on the challenges of IoT, EPAM established its Embedded UI Innovations Team as part of the larger EPAM Innovation Laboratory, where specialists work on a range of open source projects, prototypes and developments in emerging technologies. They’d been working on the concept of a “smart greenhouse” for a few months that harnesses IoT for environmental purposes while pushing themselves to work in Java. It’s no surprise that when the team heard Oracle was holding an IoT contest, they were determined to enter their pet project, the smart greenhouse.
The EPAM team was awarded the IoT Developer Challenge winner by Oracle for developing an IoT product that could change the face of greenhouse technology for farmers around the world.
