Simulation and big data analytics for on-demand ride-hailing services

Advances in technology and the popularisation of mobile phones have enabled ride-hailing services to emerge and heighten their market penetration in the transportation industry. Along with the Hong Kong government’s vision to develop smart mobility, a review of the current outdated policies regulating taxis and ride-hailing services is essential for developing a sustainable, efficient, and environmentally friendly on-demand transportation service. The main goal of the study is to recommend policies and operating strategies to assist in developing ride-hailing services in Hong Kong. This study uses a simulation platform to undergo sensitivity analysis for policies and operating strategies for ride-hailing services.

Smart Soccer Robot (ii) @ 8th Inno Show

We Built a Smart Soccer Robot with Arduino Core and added innovative designs to the Robot, including a dinosaur head and self-lock pincers. The Robot has relatively high performance in carrying or intercepting balls and thus could excel in Scoccer Matches. It is a light-weighted educational smart robot, suitable for teenagers to learn hands-on robot building and programming.

Quantum Physics Demonstrations @ 8th Inno Show

The project’s goal is to build a football robot using provided components and parts such as intelligent chips and motors, as well as other available technology such as a 3-D printer and a laser cutter.
Meanwhile, a comprehensive business plan is required. Based on the requirements, our robots develop a variety of capabilities such as song-playing, light control, self-assembly, programming potential, and power control. Furthermore, we apply the most adaptable remote control talent to provide individual wheel control. A complete and well-structured business plan, including all-sided market study, is tied to the robot’s many functions.

Blood Born – A Platformer RPG SLAM robot with monocular depth estimation

Blood Born is an immersive game that combines elements of action and adventure. Players must use their movement skills to navigate through a variety of obstacles, while battling monsters and bosses using their unique abilities. One of the standout features of the game is the blood point system. Unlike traditional health and mana systems, Blood Born uses a single variable called BP to represent a combination of HP, MP, and currency. Players must collect blood points throughout the game to unlock powerful upgrades and abilities. With its stunning graphics and innovative gameplay, Blood Born can captivate players and inspire future game developers.

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!
