HKU Robocon 2020

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 IoT sensors, AI, computer vision, and mobile computing. Besides, it provides hands-on experiences on product design, prototyping, CNC machining, design and fabrication of electric circuit and PCB, control program development, etc.

HKU Racing 2020

Formula Student UK is an educational engineering competition. The competition aims to develop enterprising and innovative young engineers and encourage more young people to take up a career in engineering. Formula Student UK 2020 will be held at Silverstone Circuit, Towcester, UK. HKU team will join the Electric Vehicles Class 1 Division competition.

RoboMaster 2020 Robotics Competition

In this project, students will learn AI and robot related technical disciplines (such as machine vision, embedded system design, mechanical control, inertial navigation, human-computer interaction, etc.) through designing and building intelligent robots according to the rules of the RoboMaster Robotics Competition. Different types of robots are required to cooperate with each other and work together to attack the base of the opponent and at the same time protect their own base.

SAE Design, Build and Drive

HKU racing is the University of Hong Kong’s very first motorsports team. Founded in late July of 2018.
Formula Student is a renowned educational engineering competition, combining practical engineering with soft skills including business planning and project management.
WE as a team are now planning on joining FSUK, Which means the Formula student competition in the UK. Team members will design and build a racing car from the ground up. The car is required to perform in numerous dynamic events that will prove the car’s capabilities in terms of speed and reliability.

Mobile App Game

Play2study is an interactive and fun educational game app. Currently, it is targeted to HKDSE candidates who study Chemistry (we plan to expand into other subjects in the future), with each chapter of the game corresponding to relevant topics of the syllabus. This game is a vivid example of ‘saying no to just reading long boring texts and books’. Upon playing this game, users can find their strengths and weaknesses in each topic and various skills, which will be provided by the game through detailed analysis from the users’ gameplay.

Robomaster 2021

Robomaster is a national robotic competition for university students, hosted by DJI during the summer vacation on a yearly basis. It combines technology and e-gaming competition style, thus being exciting and unconventional. HKU Robomaster has been recruiting enthusiastic engineering students since 2017. We aim to cultivate the quality of members that will benefit their career with the practical experience gained during the preparation and participation process. Our work is divided into technical management, machinal & hardware management, and software & algorithm development.

Communication Enhancements through Asymptotically Long Sequences of Noisy Quantum Channels

Conventionally, information suffers from exponential decay in long distance transmission. However, in exciting projects like building the quantum internet, an information carrier has to pass through many intermediate quantum servers before reaching the receiver. Such a goal cannot be achieved without a scheme of reliably transmitting data over a long sequence of noisy channels. Chiribella et al. formulated the second level of quantization of quantum information theory by considering the superposition of quantum trajectories and quantum channels and demonstrated communication advantage of this model. We apply the model further and show the theoretical feasibility of communication through asymptotically many noisy channels.
