Imagine Cup 2011–Team Argitech (Spain)


As we near the start of the 2011 Imagine Cup World Finals next week, it’s time to introduce the final team in this series.

Please extend a warm welcome to Team Argitech of Spain. The members of Team Argitech are Aitor Akizu Santacruz, Javier Sierra Navarro, Josu Lopex Olivenza, and mentor Xabier Mardaras.

Team Argitech is competing in the Embedded Development category with their project, Smart Light.

Smart Light is a management system for use with public street lighting systems. By gathering real-time data, the lighting grid can dynamic enable or disable lighting based on need. The premise of the system is that power consumption can be reduced thereby saving municipalities money.

I’m intrigued by their project, and I’m excited to see it in person and learn more. I see some real potential here.

For more about Team Argitech and Smart Light, stay tuned right here July 8th-13th.
