iProA LAmLaiYing

Our BEng in EIE graduate, Lam Lai Ying, won the Third-Class Award in the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region IT Project Competition 2020 with her final-year project on Mining of Public Transportation Data supervised by Dr Ivan Ho. The competition was organized by the Guangdong Province Federation of Computers with the Internet Professional Association (iProA) as the co-organizer for the Hong Kong Region. In the project, Lai Ying aimed to reduce traffic congestion and suggest alternative routes when MTR incidents happen during morning peak hours in Hong Kong via machine learning techniques. The proposed algorithm was validated against semi-realistic SUMO traffic simulation and empirical mobility traces provided by KMB.
