Mr YIU Cho Yin, AAE alumnus and Ph.D. student, won The HKIE LTD Best Students Papers Awards 2022. The award-winning capstone project is titled "Towards Safe and Collaborative Aerodrome Operations: Assessing Shared Situational Awareness for Adverse Weather Detection with EEG-Enabled Bayesian Neural Networks", which was supervised by Dr NG Kam Hung.
The award is presented by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers – Logistics and Transportation Division (HKIE LTD). It is introduced to recognise engineering students of accredited Logistics or Transportation Engineering Degree Programs in Hong Kong. It aims to promote innovative ideas and research in the design and implementation of sustainable logistics and transportation systems in Hong Kong, as well as encourage students to pursue their careers in the engineering profession. The theme for this year is “Smart Transport”.
Inspired by the Tenerife airport disaster, the project aims to develop a human-centered classification model to identify hazardous meteorological conditions using Bayesian neural networks. Electroencephalography (EEG) data were integrated with the concept of explainable artificial intelligence to explore latent mental patterns and vital physiological indicators. The model can facilitate the decision to provide automation and decision-making aids to pilots under adverse weather conditions.
Congratulations to Mr Yiu!
