"The hackathon was held to familiarise Indian developers from start-ups and academia with emerging global standards for machine-machine communications and the Internet of Things (IoT)," EU Ambassador to India Tomasz Kozlowski said.
A total of 60 developers from across the country took part in the hackathon.
The winning team, which presented a project on using sensors to reduce road congestion near schools due to school buses, will get a trip to Estonia to attend the Baltic country's flagship start-up and technology event Latitude59 to be held in May.
The hackathon was meant to imagine new applications a smart city could offer its citizens, said Kozlowski.
One more tutorial will be in Chandigarh on February 19.
"The initiative is an example of how we are implementing the decision taken the India-EU Summit on October 6 last year to broaden EU-India's cooperation on ICT standardisation," said Kozlowski.
