A total of 18 teams (1 from Japan and 17 from overseas) have signed up to The 4th Cloud Programming World Cup (hosted by Cloud Programming World Cup Executive Committee), and 8 teams from overseas have been nominated. In 17 November 2016, at Shinagawa Intercity Hall, World Cup Award and 4 Judge's special prize have been determined through the final open judging.

  World Cup Award
  No. 13
 Title : Fire Plugin
    - Simulation of Influences of Director Action in Fire Accident
 Team Name : Firemen University: Shanghai University  Country : China

Overview
Firstly, we developed an application using C# and Microsoft Kinect SDK to recognize animation needed in the plugin; Secondly, we used Delphi XE2 to develop the plugin in UC-win/Road to integrate C# animation recognition application and then simulate reaction of people in fire accident according to action of director collected from Kinect. This plugin can be used in the training of evacuation direction or researches because it not only simulate the action of director, but also provide varies parameters to simulate actual environment.

 Title : Leap Motion Controller
 Team Name : Unknown Legion  University: Shanghai University  Country : China

Overview
Our plugin is called Leap Motion Controller. It is designed to combine UC-win/Road with the gesture recognition device Leap Motion. Leap Motion operates in an intimate proximity with high precision. It tracks frame rate and reports discrete positions, gestures and motion. Therefore, the combination with Leap Motion will provide a gesture recognition engine for UC-win/Road and let developers and users invoke functions in UC-win/Road through simple gestures without clicking the mouse.

 Title : Sketch it !
 Team Name : Super3D  University: Shanghai Jiao Tong University  Country : China

Overview
Modeling is an important part of Virtual Reality. However, the most popular commercial softwares are complicated and difficult to get start for a beginner. Only expert users can create photorealistic models easily. In this plugin, we provide a fast way to create texture mapping models with simple user interactions. Users only need to set some pictures as reference, and sketch the contour or rotation axis from the picture, the model will be generated automatically. The model is in standard 3D format, which can be import into UC-win/Road and other softwares to display and edit.

 Title : The Early Warning Plugin of Ponding
 Team Name : HateRainyDays  University: Tongji University  Country : China

Overview
When driving in heavy rainy days, drivers would always drive slowly and carefully to avoid accidents.However, they may ignore one thing, that is, the ponding along the roads. When the ponding comes above the tailpipe, the car would shut down. We aim to implement a plugin to warn drivers under the circumstance. Because the program can acquire the future weather condition, detect the neighboring range and calculate the depth of ponding water by our algorithm automatically, the plugin can provide a logical forecast of the ponding water amount. When the driver approaching the flood area, the system will throw warnings companied with detailed information. In this way, the case that drivers drove into ponding and got trapped or lost their lives happening in China every year can be avoided at certain percents.

 Title : Development of graphical programming interface
 Team Name : Hua cheng  University: Shanghai Jiao Tong University  Country : China

Overview
A graphical programming interface will be developed for the UC-win/Road. Using this interface, users can specify their programming intentions just by drawing a flowchart-like diagram. The, the diagram is translated into Delphi Code that further call the APIs form the wrapper of UC-Win/Road. The flowcharts act as scripts to control behaviors of the created 3D model. In this way, users who are not familiar with the Delphi language or even those with no programming experience can develop complicated transportation algorithm for UC-win/Road and solve relating questions. Thanks for our plugin,the scope of UC's customer can then increase from people with plentiful programming experience to those ordinary people.

 Title : Driving Simulation with Real Vehicle Interface
 Team Name :  Intelligent Transportation Research Center
 University : Wuhan University of Technology   Country : China

Overview
In order to enhance the real sense of UC-win/road in the man-machine operation, we are going to be throught the second development to connect UC-win/road software with the operation of real car to acquire real car operation.Specifically, through the CAN bus outputs a car steering wheel, accelerator pedal, brake pedal, gear and other information, operated by UC-win/road SDK, as input to the simulation software; during simulated driving, lift the car front wheel, start the car, driver operates the car in totally real man-machine environment to obtain stronger immersed sense.

 Title : JumpFly !!!
 Team Name : YOU University: Shanghai Maritime University  Country : China

Overview
Our team create a plugin which can let users to define their unusual tour in UCwin/Road.In this plugin, we create two mode: Jump mode and Fly mode. In this two mode, users can defin their own tour in Ucwin/Road, then start to experence the feel about parachute or jump during the city model. user can use keyboard to contorl the person move, use mouse or VR equipment control the camera visual angle, then they will feel they are fly or they are jump. That was the excellent experence for every one. VR is very popular topic in these years, so this plugin can let user know what can VR do, and enjoy the whole game.

 Title : A Rear - end Collision Alarming System
 Team Name : Human@ University: Chang'an University  Country : China

Overview
The UC-Win/Road software could realize driving simulation. While it could judge whether the current car collides with the car ahead, however, it fails to issue an advance warning. Our team therefore designed an alarming system. The system contains both the internal plug-in and the external equipment called STM32F4 SCM. Users could choose one from three different methods whose functions have been packaged into the program to figure out the threshold and then transmit it to the SCM by COM. The SCM would alarm once the distance or the time of a current car reaches the threshold. Hence, the UC-Win/Road promises to be useful for those researchers of safe driving.
