Hong Kong’s Smart Government Innovation Lab has managed to sustain the release of new and relevant innovations despite a tumultuous economic landscape across the world.

Recently they announced a new Intelligent Face Mask that is now ready to be acquired by companies and institutions.

Solution descriptions

The intelligent face mask will come with replaceable N95 grade (or other grade) filters, active UV disinfection feature with self-cleaning filter function, multi modes of operations, support Bluetooth with APP to manage real-time temperature, wearing belt status and location tracking of wearing person.

Details of the solution are as follows:

  • Reference dimensions: 15 x 13.3 x 10.4 cm.
  • Reference weight: less than 50 grams.
  • Disinfection modes include replaceable N95-grade filters, UV disinfection feature.
  • 2 disinfection modes: normal protection (last > 16 hours per charging) and enhanced protection (> 8 hours), with rechargeable built-in battery
  • APP connection to manage the status of real-time temperature, wearing belt status, geographical location tracking to track alarm and predict any individual with potential health risk, and warning signals can be automatically sent to control centre for public health control measures quickly and accurately through big-data communications.

Application Areas

The solution was designed to be used across several areas including City Management, Commerce and Industry, Employment and Labour, Environment, Housing, Recreation and Culture as well as Transport.

Technologies Used

The intelligent face mask employs Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Mobile Technologies.

Use case

The mask is able to proactively clean itself using the intelligent management of the wearing person’s health status.

Some cases include:

  1. Front-end staff which needs in-person interactions – it helps to protect and actively disinfect while monitoring his/her tracking within the department to trace automatically and sterilize the routes specifically
  2. Personnel who works both outdoors and in mobility modes – to provide extra protection and tracking inside and outside within HK
  3. It can be equipped for those activities like HKTDC exhibitions or shows where massive numbers of persons need to be properly monitored
  4. Those persons who are under quarantine tracking – It is used to trace, protect and disinfect all in one device. Alert back to control centre if the person turns in worse health status or stay away from quarantine apartment locations.

About the Smart Government Innovation Lab

In 2018, the Government established the Smart Government Innovation Lab to explore hi-tech products such as AI and relevant technologies, including machine learning, big data analytics, cognitive systems and intelligent agent, as well as blockchain and robotics from firms, especially local start-ups.

The Lab is always on the lookout for innovation and technology (I&T) solutions that are conducive to enhancing public services or their operational effectiveness.

I&T suppliers are encouraged to regularly visit the Lab’s website to check on the current business and operational needs in public service delivery and propose innovative solutions or product suggestions to address them.
