Innovative Solutions from Hong Kong Tech Lab

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 – Data collaboration (open data) platform with Privacy Computing

Solution description

The company has developed a secure computing platform providing both data governance and AI capabilities, with which business partners could share data insights without data leakage to better promote their business/operation management. The platform was designed to enable other organisations like academic research institutions and start-ups to be nurtured to improve the information technology ecosystem in HK.

Application Areas

The solution was designed to be applied across the areas of Commerce and Industry, Education, Finance and Health as well as within a smart city.

Technologies Used

The solution employs the latest in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud Computing, Data Analytics, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing as well as Predictive Analytics.

Use case

By using the firm’s XDP secure computing platform, users can share data insights with others without data leakage concerns. Moreover, the data governance and AI capabilities of this platform help businesses and other institutions access alternative data, extract data insights for better decision-making as well as promote their businesses or operational performance either within industry or across industries. This, therefore, nurtures the economic ecosystem and academic development in HK. In addition, data sharing and collaboration also enhance researchers in the region further developing academic performance.

Solution II – Tunnel Vehicle Monitoring and Classification System via LiDAR and Video Camera

Solution description

Manual tunnel monitoring is a time and resource-consuming process. The process is prone to human errors and miscalculations. Thus, the firm’s Tunnel Vehicle Monitoring and Classification system uses computer vision and 3D point clouds to derive insights from the video cameras and LiDAR sensors installed in the tunnels. It analyses the traffic in a tunnel, calculates the number of vehicles in predefined areas, determines the speed and direction of traffic, conducts vehicle classification (e.g., taxis, public buses, private cars), and displays real-time and accumulated statistics in a web-based dashboard, tailored to the user’s needs.

Application Areas

The solution was designed to by deployed 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

This solution can help to improve the conditions of using tunnels by providing real-time tunnel usage statistics. The statistics can help users to understand the conditions of tunnel usage such as average speed of traffic, number of vehicles in queue and more.
