Description of Startup:

Micro Plug and Play (µPnP, is a full software and hardware stack for the Internet-of-Things (IoT). The technology is based on best-of-breed standards coupled with an open architecture. MicroPnP offers simple, yet powerful APIs for application development, as well as run-time management and monitoring of deployed IoT infrastructure and applications.

µPnP supports rapid application development and deployment without the need for large infrastructure investment. The platform enables the creation of flexible Internet of Things (IoT) applications through plug-and-play customization. In a nutshell: µPnP is the Internet-of-Things (IoT) made easy.

The µPnP technology was demonstrated at the IPSO challenge in a smart building scenario, where the team was awarded third place.
