CHAIN Technology Development, one of the most innovative players in the field of smart city technology, received Smart Business (Solution for Business and Public Sector Enterprise) Certificate of Merit from the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2019. This marks the second consecutive year that a CHAIN solution has been honored in this awards program.
The award recognizes Hybrid Reality Platform (HRP), CHAIN’s next generation Digital Twin software suite, for its ability to help businesses improve customer engagement and operational efficiency with a single unified view showing different levels of temporal and spatial characteristics. Clients can provide consistently superior customer experiences on the front end while Digital Twin efficiently drives business processes on the back end to ensure all work gets done seamlessly.
CHAIN has partnered with the Airport Authority (AA) to develop “HKIA Digital Twin” , a 3D computer-generated replica of the Hong Kong International Airport’s physical layout and functions, based on Hybrid Reality Platform. It collects real-time data fed from Internet of Things (IoT) devices deployed throughout the airport and transforms it into a virtual model of ground operations and airport processes, which delivers human-centric visualization and explainable prediction to streamline decision-making process.
Furthermore, users can engage in the HKIA Digital Twin inside CHAIN’s Immersive CAVE which provides an unparalleled first-person view and excellent platform for instant collaborative communication among different stakeholders. The judging panel praised the Digital Twin “demonstrates the good use of data, computer generated simulation to support decision-making with the aid of visualized digital model of the real-world”.
Wisdom Chan, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder at CHAIN, received the award at the HK ICT Awards 2019 ceremony, “This is a great honour to receive this award for the second consecutive year, and it makes us extremely proud. The HKIA Digital Twin is one of the successful examples of how our technology could truly benefit various industries according to their needs. It really encourages us to strive for breakthrough along the path of technological development.”
