Mr. Tsang, Yung Po (Paul), who is a graduate student in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), took part in the 12th Final Year Project Competition, an open competition organized by the IEEE (Hong Kong) Computational Intelligence Chapter, together with other contestants from local Universities. After an intense competition, Paul was awarded the First Runner-up, at a ceremony held on 22 August 2015.

Paul, who graduated from the BSc (Hons) in Logistics Engineering and Management (LEM) this summer, received the award of the First Runner-up with his individual project entitled “Study and Design of an Indoor Positioning Method: a Simple and Rapid Approach”, which was supervised by Dr W.H. Ip and Dr C.H. Wu. Moreover, the RFID Solutions Laboratory also provided technical support to this project.

The student project enables a rapid and practical approach for using Bluetooth technology in an indoor positioning system for a case company. The performance was validated in terms of signal variation, positioning accuracy and response time through a series of extensive laboratory and on-site experiments. In regard to the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) applications, the proposed method enables further enhancement in collecting the positions and moving patterns of human, which is useful in supporting business strategy formulation in specific areas, such as shopping malls, exhibition and event management.

The competition is an annual event organized by the IEEE (Hong Kong) Computational Intelligence Chapter, and is open to all final year undergraduates who are studying in a tertiary institution in Hong Kong, with their individual or group project in an area of computational intelligence. It aims to promote computational intelligence among students in Hong Kong.

Congratulations again to the winner and we are very proud of our student for his excellent project work and performance.
