As a startup of smart city technology incubated in the Hong Kong Science Park, CHAIN Technology Development appeared on a video programme about innovation and technology produced by Commercial Radio Hong Kong with the support of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTPC). It gets public closer to understand CHAIN’s business value and the story behind innovation that may surprise you.
Picked as one of the startups introduced in the programme, CHAIN showed its most eye-catching products, 4D Immersive CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) and Ultra-Touch Table, which are powered by its flagship solution, Hybrid Reality Platform (HRP). Among various application scenarios of Immersive CAVE, the most remarkable one is construction project monitoring.
“In the past, we discussed about construction design changes with piles of blueprints on table. It lacks a visualized system to demonstrate how the changes really are.” Wisdom Chan, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of CHAIN explained with realistic scenarios of part of Sha Tin town, and Science Park shown in the CAVE. “When it comes to a new planning, you just put new models into the platform and you could see the outcomes instantly. It makes environmental assessment of how new buildings will affect surrounding environment much easier and more convenient.”
CHAIN previously joined the Global Acceleration Academy (GAA) launched by HKSTP, which quickly led to collaboration with AliCloud on Smart Mall project. “All relevant information related to a building could be imported into our platform, which enables management team to monitor the mall easily. The system could analyze real-time customer flow and status of public utilities, such as ventilation, fire alarm system, water supply and electricity. It helps managers to run the shopping mall efficiently.” Wisdom said.
The programme’s premiere was held at Hong Kong Science Park on 16 Jan 2019. It will be broadcasted on HKSTP’s social media channels for 12 consecutive Wednesdays. The programme not only showcases latest technologies developed by startups in Science Park, but also documents the sweet and bitter on the road to technological innovation.
