PolyU intelligent transport projects promote smart mobility
Ten PolyU-led projects awarded funding for multi-disciplinary mainland-Hong Kong collaborative research
PolyU partners with Cybaverse Academy to set up Hong Kong’s first research laboratory on law and Web3
Two PolyU intelligent transport projects have been awarded HK$13.8 million by the Government’s Smart Traffic Fund. The projects use intelligent simulation platforms and extended reality to train drivers and enhance their skills in order to improve road safety. They are part of PolyU’s innovative research in traffic and transportation to promote smart mobility in Hong Kong.
The Government launched the Smart Traffic Fund in November 2021. As of January 2023, a total of 11 projects led by PolyU researchers, out of a total of 29 projects, have been granted funding. A total of around HK$37 million has so far been granted through the fund.
Intelligent Driving Training and Evaluation System for Container Trucks
Professor Fu Xiaowen
This project aims to use extended reality technology to develop a simulation system, which is comparable to the actual driving environment, to provide training to learner drivers of container trucks.
Driving Style-based Adaptive Virtual Training Platform: Build Safe Human Driving Habits in Autonomous Driving
Dr Li Fan
This project aims to design and develop a virtual reality-based training platform to improve driving habits in level 2 and level 3 autonomous vehicles, i.e. human-machine co-driving, providing customised training for drivers with different driving styles.
