New Solutions from HK 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 – AI Autonomous Disinfection Robot

Solution description

The solution, called Bubble Fish, is a disinfection robot that can effectively purify the air and precisely eliminate the coronavirus as well as a variety of common epidemic bacteria. It is equipped with a precise radar for automatic navigation and obstacle avoidance, based on the construction and data communication.

Robots can connect through a phone application, realise the transparency of work data (this includes disinfection logs, machine states, etc.), database storage, and remote control the robot. With this system, users can manage and trace the current and previous disinfection work in a closed loop.

Application Areas

The solution was developed to be applied across the areas of City Management, Commerce and Industry, Development, Education, Employment and Labour, Environment, Housing, Recreation and Culture, Social Welfare as well as Transport.

Technologies Used

The solution employs the latest in Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Use Case

The disinfection robot can be set to schedule and after the disinfection tasks are finished, the robot will be returned to the charger automatically. In this way, disinfection tasks can be conducted when the user needs them and the robot can be operational for 24 hours. Employing the disinfection robot can reduce the costs of janitor head counts and a janitor can be shifted to other cleaning tasks. Thus, productivity, efficiency and cleanliness would be increased.

Solution II – Certificate Creation and Authentication Management System

Solution description

The second solution is a Certificate Creation and Authentication Management System. The process of certificate-making and issuance consists of the following pain points:

  1. Certificate issued by the institution

Traditionally, when issuing certificates, it is necessary to first design the content. This includes the trademark and certificate, which is usually handed over to the designer. After the design is completed, it is handed over to the printing factory to set the quantity and generate inventory. More certificate types will generate more inventory. To print the inventory certificate, the applicant’s name, date, and certificate number must be entered. Then, this is sent to the applicant via mail or self-pickup.

This process results in the wastage of paper, film, time, and money. The process of third-party verification inquiry and certificate re-issuance also requires labour to ensure that the certificates of institutions and brands will not be plagiarised.

  1. Certificate applicant

For most courses, exams, and activities it is very unlikely the certificate will be received on the same day. For lost documents, an applicant will need to file for a reissue, and store all previous certificates.

  1. Third-party verification

If the authenticity of the certificate cannot be identified, it needs to be checked with the issuing authority, and the result cannot be known immediately.

Thus, aimed at addressing these three pain points, the company has developed a set of clear, convenient, and practical ideas. This innovative approach can make the three aspects more coordinated. The following are the key points of change in the eCertApp:

  1. Certificate Management System

This application streamlines issuance, verification, storage and sharing. Each certificate is independently coded, and the block certificate has a fast authentication function. It can also convert old paper certificates into smart certificates, systematically archive them, reduce workload, and change the global traditional paper certificate issuance and verification ecology.

  1. Certificate collector

The company’s certificate platform cooperates with mobile applications. Through this, users can apply for and receive certificates issued by multiple institutions, store them permanently, never lose the certificates, facilitate management, and share them with people who may be interested at any time.

  1. Third-party Verifier

A QR code is assigned for code scanning and NFC authentication for quick authentication. All certificate codes are unique, and it takes less than a second to check the authenticity of the certificate, the background of the organisation’s registration and contact information.

This two-dimensional code is a non-contact way of using quick response code, while two-dimensional code (QR Code) and NFC use “near field communication” tags and radio frequency technology to implant chips into products without damaging their appearance. The encryption program can read the authenticity of the product and transfer it to the product owner.

Application Areas

The solution was developed to be applied across the areas of City Management, Development, Education, Employment and Labour, Environment, Health, Infrastructure, Law, and Security as well as Recreation and Culture.

Technologies Used

The solution employs the latest in Blockchain, Cloud Computing and Mobile Technologies.

Use Case

The Platform has a wide range of uses. In addition to certificates, it can also be used for certification documents, recommendation letters, membership cards, certificates with expiration dates, including product repair and warranty certificates, product certificates, ownership transfers and the app will update users when an expiration date is reached.

The platform can set up and open multiple branches and administrators and can manage certificates for each branch worldwide. Moreover, all future and currently issued certificates and design templates can be managed through an at-a-glance dashboard.
