Digilent Design Contest 2018 – Finals

We had a great pleasure to participate in Digilent Design Contest 2018 finals. Competition was strong this year. Team from Serbia won first prize with their Deep Neural Network Hardware Accelerator.

On the podium was also one team from Romania and two from Poland.

Additive SynthesizerGdansk University of Technology
was granted with Digilent special prize for best usage of Digilent Instruments.

The event lasts for two days. On Saturday all finalists were presenting their work. On Sunday only few teams were invited for showing in details their solutions.

Most of submissions for the contest were diploma thesis or long-term projects conducted by experienced engineers.

Our approach for competition was to learn a lot and explore different approaches to Augmented Reality on SoC devices. In my opinion it is not necessarily important to win, but to compete, cooperate and learn state-of-the-art techniques and methods. We draw conclusions and got valuable feedback from community.
