HK’s Government Innovation Lab Rolls Out New Solutions

Two tech companies operating within Hong Kong’s Smart Government Innovation Lab announced the roll-out of solutions that are now ready to be acquired by companies and institutions.

Solution I – Cloud-native Project Management & Collaboration Solution

Solution description

A tech company under the Smart Government Innovation Lab has developed a cloud-native project management & collaboration solution called Julius. The solution is able with applications across the project lifecycle. Designed from the ground up with feedback from industry leaders, the solution enables digital transformation without server deployment.

Application Areas

The solution was developed to be applied in the area of City Management.

Technologies Used

The solution employs the latest in Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Use Case

The solution allows users to:

  • Gain control of and visibility into the customer pipeline as well as the sales and revenue situations of each project. Users can also track and manage cost vs. budget in real time; understand current progress status and stay ahead of potential risks and issues before it’s too late; enforce and evaluate against the quality standards without slowing down teams.
  • Access and analyse customer and sales data on the fly; CRM functions tailored to the property sector including sales channel, commission and performance analysis; track inventories, sales velocity and payments; document full sales cycle between customer visit and contract payment to ensure smooth transaction; smart alerts on delays, returns and sales performance issues.
  • Control every cost item to avoid cost overruns; manage change in real time – creating budgets that more accurately reflect where the budget stands at any moment; generate detailed financial reports to see how the spending decisions affect projected profits at close out; facilitate faster approvals, more accurate communication and eliminating the need to proceed at risk.
  • Stay on schedule; quickly identify potential issues and their impact on schedule and budgets; avoid unwanted surprises with better visibility of every project task; track all steps and speed up the approval process.
  • Understand and correct issues before they become a problem; built for the site, making it easy for site teams to contribute to and comply with construction safety regulations and quality specifications; all the necessary documentation, reference materials and records needed to ensure standards are met with verification methods that create accountability along the way.

Solution II – Vehicle Queue Monitoring Solution

Solution description

Manual queue monitoring is a time and resource-consuming process that is prone to human errors and miscalculations. The Vehicle Queue Monitoring system uses computer vision to derive insights from the video cameras installed in the regions of interest. It analyses the traffic, calculates the number of vehicles in the predefined areas, conducts classification (taxi, public bus, private car), and notifies the user of specific scenarios.

For example, a user will receive an SMS/email alert if the queue exceeds 20 vehicles. The system also displays real-time and accumulated statistics in a web-based dashboard, tailored to the user’s needs. The Video Analytics system can be implemented in various locations that include vehicle traffic, such as car parks, tunnels, gas stations, highways, etc.

Application Areas

The solution was developed to be applied across the areas of City Management, Infrastructure as well as Transport.

Technologies Used

The solution employs the latest in Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and Video Analytics.

Use Case

An example of the application of the Video Analytics system is in queue-monitoring in gas stations. The system can detect, classify and count the number of vehicles queueing at a gas station. Once the queue exceeds the predefined region, an SMS alert is sent to the chosen number of users informing them on the queue status. Users can view a livestream to verify the queue and take appropriate actions. Additional features include analytics services where various daily/weekly trends are recorded and presented in the form of graphs and diagrams in a user-friendly web-based dashboard.
