RIF Dr Hsu

AAE’s Associate Head Awarded $3.1 Million by the RGC Research Impact Fund Scheme (RIF)

Congratulations to the Associate Head of Department of Aeronautical and Aviation Engineering, Dr Li-Ta HSU for being awarded a supporting fund by the RGC Research Impact Fund 2021/22. The awarded project “Reliable Multiagent Collaborative Global Navigation Satellite System Positioning for Intelligent Transportation Systems” led by Dr Li-ta HSU (AAE) would be supported with a total amount of $3.1 million in 3 years. The preliminary result used to apply for this RIF project is based on the research of an AAE’s research postgraduate student, Mr Guohao ZHANG, who is supervised by Dr Hsu. The modern concepts of intelligent transportation systems (ITS), internet of thing (IoT), digital twin and smart cities, all require accurate and trustworthy Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning.  This RIF awarded project develops a collaborative GNSS positioning algorithm that uses data from a centralized cloud server and that is based on 3D city models, AI, and IoT. The proposed system can play an irreplaceable role to provide accurate, reliable, and absolute position tags in the coming digital era. The team members include, Dr Bing XU from AAE, Prof. Jiannong CAO from COMP, Prof Wu CHEN from LSGI, and Dr Jun ZHANG from ECE/UST. We wish Dr Hsu and his team continued success.
