The 7th Engineering Inno Show

Designing solutions for construction workers against global warming

We are a group of passionate undergraduates interested in designing a cooling accessory
that is tailor-made for the construction site. We hope to promote a better working
lifestyle for the 580,000 construction workers in HK under global warming, as well as
address awareness about outdoor labour safety.

This project combats global warming with ergonomics studies, aerodynamics and
electronics engineering. We also plan to integrate the accessory with thermal sensors and
IoT systems.

Receiptify

Receiptify is a solution to digitise physical receipts from restaurants and retail stores. It eliminates the need for physical receipts by using QR codes and automatically adds the expenses to your budget manager.

Drone Onboard Radio Transceiver for SAR

Project Humpback is a project aimed to develop a drone onboard programmable radio transceiver that is designed to assist SAR personnel in locating the missing person by their smart phone.

The module has three main operation modes, including active scanning, passive scanning, and a spoofing mode. It can send and receive certain type of packets, and pretend to be devices that is owned by the missing person. When using multiple modules together, it can form a mesh-like network within themselves, enabling functions like triangulation of signal and dividing workload.

Tripmate

Tripmate is an app made for the course COMP3330 – Interactive Mobile Application Design and Programming. It is composed of 3 parts, Tripmate Reels, AI trip planner, and travel toolkit. Before your trip, you can first look at others’ recent trips in Tripmate Reels. Then, you can instantly copy their itineraries and make changes, or generate one using our A.I. trip planner. During your trip, you can use our travel toolkit which includes tools that ease your travel. It is a 3-in-1 travel hub that enhances the overall experience of your next trip.

3DuPrint – HKU 3D Print Cloud Submission System

The print jobs to 3D printers in HKU are handled manually by making a schedule in the booking system, instead of a cloud 3D print submission system.​

The app aims to make it easier for students and teachers to submit jobs to HKU’s 3D printers by automating the process of submitting new jobs​​. It maximizes the efficiency of printing new jobs​. Features like auto-scheduling of jobs allows to minimize the empty time between jobs​.

And a approval system can reject invalid prints​ and make printing managed by tutors or approved users​, avoiding inexperienced users to use wrong filament or break the printer​.

HKU Astar @ 7th Inno Show

Our project A Grade is a mobile app which can help us students get focus when studying but is more than that. We have 5 function now in total, namely Pomodoro, ToDoList, Study Room Statistics and Ranking. A Pomodoro will help user stay focused on their task; A ToDoList is best for user to clear their tasks; A study room is a wonderful place for students to keep focus together and encourage each other; Concrete statistics graphs will let our users kwon themselves better. Ranking act as a in a perfect incentive for user to keep on study and stay focused. Our app is designed to let user study in a relaxing mode. The user will has cute turtles keep him/her company. Hope that our project can help student get better study experience!

HKU Robocon 2022 @ 7th Inno Show

The annual Robocon competition project allows HKU engineering students from different disciplines to design and fabricate innovative robots with an integration of various advanced technologies, including artificial intelligence, computer vision, and real-time embedded control. Besides, it provides hands-on experiences on product design, prototyping, CNC machining, design and fabrication of electric circuit and PCB, control program development, etc.

Furthermore, senior members mentor junior members in each year and hence valuable experiences, knowledge, and skills for design and fabrication of robots can be sustained for next year’s competition. In addition, it enables the HKU students to exchange their knowledge and skills with students from local and other countries’ universities. Therefore, it motivates the students to engage in experiential learning via exploring and integrating various advanced technologies. As a result, students’ innovation and teamwork abilities would be enhanced.

QuestBoard

The idea of QuestBoard comes from quest boards in RPGs where dispatchers post quests, and the heroes accept quests. Heroes are people who start their adventures and earn their living by completing challenging quests. Dispatchers are people who post quests, and they usually give rewards to the heroes who complete their quests in return. Our app is an app which brings this system into real life.

Unlike existing freelancer platforms and job seeking platforms, QuestBoard focuses on daily tasks which utilize all kinds of skills and are more flexible. Everyone can be heroes with their kindness, and they can earn rewards by finishing quests.
