SIG project

SIG – Ararat Plain Southeast Archaeological Project (APSAP)

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.

SIG – PERfECT Wearables for Digital Health

Internet of things (IoT) has attracted huge attention because of its potential to connect things together with the cloud. Similarly, the Internet of Health (IoH) aims to enable real-time health evaluation of an individual or a group with advanced medical devices. This feat can be realized by developing tiny wearable biosensors that can be easily deployed on the human body to monitor health signals. This project develops next-generation wearable biosensors to allow digital healthcare. There are two main components. First, we develop skin-attachable biosensors which detect health signals including electrophysiological signals, temperature, and antibodies or glucose in the sweat. Second, we develop miniaturized sensor characterization systems to enable comfort wear for practical applications. The whole set can communicate the data wirelessly with other electronic devices. This will be one of the smallest wearable devices developed so far. Future research is being conducted by our group at the innovation wing now at HKU.

SIG – Quantum Bit Demonstrator

The world is currently in the midst of a second-quantum revolution, which will see the counter intuitive properties of quantum systems such as superposition and entanglement, being applied for commercial technologies such as quantum computing, quantum sensing, and quantum communications. Quantum Computing is mostly taught to undergraduates in a classroom focusing mostly on theoretical and mathematical concepts with minimal laboratory components. This is primarily because research laboratories working in quantum science are too expensive, bulky, and complicated to be used for undergraduate teaching purposes. We wish to bridge that gap by building a compact, user-friendly, interactive setup to introduce quantum physics to a younger non-expert audience. The goal of the project is to create a curriculum for quantum technology, a sustainable education model, with an in-class demonstration kit for quantum science education.

HKU Robocon 2019

We are a robotic team formed in 2004 to participate in the ABU robocon competition. Since its establishment, and had won Champion 4 times, 1st runner up 5 times and 2nd runner up 3 times in local competition, and 1st runner up once in international competition in the past 16 years. We are looking forward to win more awards for HKU in upcoming competition. Our members mainly come from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Computer Science. We also welcome students not from Engineering Faculty to join us as long as you are passionate and willing to work hard ain robotics.

RoboMaster2020 Recruitment

RoboMaster (the RM) is one of the world’s biggest, most complex and completely over the top student robotics competition. During the 5-day competition, students from over 200 universities around the world compete in front tens of thousands of fans while millions more watch online. The whole thing takes place inside a colossal stadium in Shenzhen, an arena that usually holds the country’s biggest rock stars. It is all being funded by Da Jiang Innovations Science & Technology Co, which is widely known as Dji, a company famous of its drone product named Phantom. The competitors are here not only for cash prizes but a chance to audition their talents for jobs in Dji. Dji on the other hand wants to use this competition to become the most successful robotics company in the world. This is RoboMaster, a stage for the robot-lovers to achieve their childhood dreams.
