Computing Students Won Double Grand Prizes at Collegiate Competition of Educational Technology

June 2016

由國際混合學習學會(International Hybrid Learning Society)舉辦的校際教育科技項目比賽(Collegiate Competition of Educational Technology)中,公大電腦的畢業年學生再創佳績,囊括三個大獎的其中兩個,每隊獲得一萬元現金獎。豐富的獎金吸引了包括城大,理大,中大,恆管等院校的學生參加,最後入圍的八隊隊伍在六月十一日決賽,介紹各隊的作品。

奪得大獎的公大隊伍之一是萬維網科技課程四年級的陳俊傑,蘇曉豐,潘彥駿的隊伍。參賽項目是學車流動軟件,「筆試路試一Take Pass」。完全滿足學神們各種預備考試的需要,最特別的功能是「情景考量」,畫面會出現路面各種情況,而用家要作出適合的反應。恭喜同學及其指導老師Dr. WS Ho。

另一奪得大獎的公大隊伍是互聯網科技課程四年級的周德正,關鎧羚和蘇朗熙 的隊伍。參賽項目是輔助長者的軟件,目的是協助患有老年病的長者設立進食藥物的時間表、提醒食藥的時間及提供健康相關的資訊。恭喜同學及其指導老師Dr. Vanessa Ng。

Hugo Leung
Software and Hardware Engineer
Innovation Team Company Limited

Hugo Leung Wai-yin, who graduated from his four-year programme in 2015, won the Best Paper Award for his ‘intelligent pill-dispenser’ design at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering’s International Conference on Consumer Electronics – China 2015.

The pill-dispenser alerts patients via sound and LED flashes to pre-set dosage and time intervals. Unlike units currently on the market, Hugo’s design connects to any mobile phone globally. In explaining how it works, he said: ‘There are three layers in the portable pillbox. The lowest level is a controller with various devices which can be connected to mobile phones in remote locations. Patients are alerted by a sound alarm and flashes. Should they fail to follow their prescribed regime, data can be sent via SMS to relatives and friends for follow up.’ The pill-dispenser has four medicine slots, plus a back-up with a LED alert, topped by a 500ml water bottle. It took Hugo three months of research and coding to complete his design, but he feels it was worth all his time and effort.

Hugo’s public examination results were disappointing and he was at a loss about his future before enrolling at the OUHK, which he now realizes was a major turning point in his life. He is grateful for the OUHK’s learning environment, its industry links and the positive guidance and encouragement from his teachers. The University is now exploring the commercial potential of his design with a pharmaceutical company. He hopes that this will benefit the elderly and chronically ill, as well as the society at large.

Soon after completing his studies, Hugo joined an automation technology company as an assistant engineer. He is responsible for the design and development of automation devices. The target is to minimize human labor and increase the quality of products. He is developing products which are used in various sections, including healthcare, manufacturing and consumer electronics.
