"XingWangCeTong", a project developed by the team of the Beijing Institute of Technology, was crowned the champion. While being applicable to hundreds of different scenarios, it aims to carry out measuring tasks using satellite internet, tremendously improving the efficiency, and saving the costs by 90%.

The two runners-up projects were brought by Tsinghua University and Xiamen University. The Tsinghua team, by coordinately optimizing performance of chips and algorithms, designed a type of ultra-low power AI chip for industrial IoT use cases, and thus to help solve problems in data management and migration.

The MEMS pressure chip developed by the team of Xiamen University can be used in various fields such as aerospace, transportation, energy resource, industry, consumption, and electronics. By utilizing the most advanced technology, it is able to detect a flow diameter of 33 mm or metal particles as small as 100μm.

Three projects came in second runners-up. "JetPack MAI", a project from the Moscow Aviation Academy, is committed to developing and manufacturing of aircraft for complex uses. By optimizing engine performance and reducing structural weight, it can be used in maintenance of wind power facilities, dangerous rescues, or technical aviation in airports.

"Advanced Robot-assisted System for Dental Surgery", a project from the Technical University of Munich, developed an AI robot for dental surgery. This system, by working with a cloud platform that thoroughly integrates software and hardware, is a likely alternative for teeth implant surgeries in the future.

"E-mental Health", a project from Carnegie Mellon University, was designed based on the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the help of wearable devices and artificial intelligence, it can monitor tones, expressions, and heartbeats of a person, and thus carry out emotional assessment and follow-up intervention.

The competition has drawn 6.31 million participants from China and abroad. 1.47 million projects from 4,186 colleges in 117 countries and regions signed up for this year’s competition.
