LSCM Roadshow 2015 < Previous | Home | Next >

LSCM Roadshow 2015 held by the LSCM R&D Centre in conjunction with The Hong Kong Society for the Blind and Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, took place from 14 to 19 April 2015 at the Olympian City.

Entitled “Smart IoT technologies break new grounds for diversified development”, the roadshow demonstrates how the latest enabling technologies of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and RFID technologies can be applied to various fields, including: smart warehouse management system which is specially developed to cater for the needs of the fast growing e-commerce industry; indoor navigation mobile application which can be widely applied in shopping mall, airport, exhibition hall and campus; RFID mail tracking system, a joint project collaborated with the Hong Kong Post aiming at enhancing the efficiency of postal service. 

Five technology showcases focused on demonstrating how LSCM’s newly developed assistive tools can benefit the elderly and people with special needs, as well as the logistics industry and supply chain management. The showcase featured simulations of different scenario, such as smart elderly home and post office for participants to learn how to properly use these innovative technologies in the actual environment and situations inside out through games.

In addition, the LSCM R&D Centre has developed a series of assistive tools tailor-made for the social welfare sector, including a “smart communication card” which can assist the speech-impeded people to express themselves, the RFID tagged vest and key case which can prevent the elderly from getting lost and be located quickly, a “smart living sensor system” which can help the elderly to get prompt assistance if any falling accidents happened at home, and the “smart guide cane” that gives voice instructions to the visually impaired.

The Centre was honoured to have groups of enthusiastic visitors who came up with ideas for improvement and thought-provoking questions. With the wholehearted support from 20 trade associations from the fields of logistics and supply chain, and participation from 13 technology partners, the 6-day event marked with significant accomplishment.
Officiating guests of the kick-off ceremony included: Hon Charles Mok, JP, Legislative Councillor (Information Technology); Miss Nancy Law, Chairman, The Hong Kong Society for the Blind; Miss Janet Wong, JP, Commissioner for Innovation and Technology; Dr Sunny Chai, Chairman of The Board of Directors, LSCM R&D Centre; Mr Albert Su, Chief Executive, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals; Ms Joanne Leung, Senior Manager, Retail Marketing & Promotions, Olympian City; Mr Simon Wong, Chief Executive Officer, LSCM R&D Centre (from left to right)
