Miss TAM, Wing Yiu (Wendy), who is a graduate student of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), received the award of champion of “CILTHK Logistics & Transport Student Final Year Project Award 2015”, an open competition run by The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport Hong Kong (CILTHK).

Wendy, who graduated from the BSc (Hons) in Logistics Engineering and Management (LEM) programme in this summer, won the competition with her final year undergraduate project entitled “Feasibility Study of RFID-based Fallen Object Detection System in Mass Transportation Industry, which was supervised by Dr George HO. Moreover, the RFID Solutions Laboratory also provided the technical support for this project.

The student project provides innovative insights on using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in outdoor environments to a case company for an object detection system. The performance was validated in terms of accuracy, distinguishability and response time through a series of extensive laboratory and on-site experiments. Concerned with railway operation and development, the intelligent monitoring system enables further enhancement in providing accurate and prompt information.

The competition is an annual event organized by the CILTHK, and is open to all final year undergraduates who are studying CILTHK accredited programmes, with their individual thesis or group project appraised at Grade A. It aims to celebrate and highlight undergraduate students contributing the Best Practice Development in the field of Logistics or Transportation by recognizing their outstanding academic work.
