RFID-enabled Parcel Locker System

 

In Oct 2015, LSCM conducted a research trial with the Hongkong Post to assist in the realization of the next generation of mail collection services by developing an RFID enabled parcel locker system. The first generation of iPostal station was launched in May 2016, as a system for providing lockers placed in the community which provides flexibility to the public in collecting large-sized mail at their convenience.

Currently, the Hongkong Post has deployed around 12 iPostal stations at various locations within the HKSAR.  Promulgation of the new generation of RFID –enabled iPostal Stations by Hongkong Post, with the assistance of the new funding program from ITB, will allow Hongkong Post to better serve the general public. The “RFID-enabled Parcel Locker System” has won the gold medal at the Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions in 2017.
