Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) student Mr. Chow Nok To of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) won the ‘HKIE Manufacturing & Industrial Division Student Project Competition 2014-15’, an open competition that attracted participating teams from the major Hong Kong universities in June 2015. This competition is an annual event organized by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) to recognize project handling skills and creativity of students studying in disciplines related to manufacturing and industrial engineering, and it is highly competitive with two rounds of presentation to screen out the top three projects.   

Mr Chow, a graduate of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Industrial and Systems Engineering in PolyU, won the competition with the project entitled "Towards new possibilities in home intelligence", which was supervised by Dr Velvet Chen.

The project aims to explore new possibilities in home intelligence systems, and proposes a universal and effective user control method to enrich the degree of freedom in home intelligence applications. The methodology was verified by an unique testbed integrating mobility with home appliances, in order to increase the diversity and capability of existing systems.
