• “Climate Change and My Smart City” Experience Centre at Construction Industry Council

    23 June 2017

    (22 June 2017, Hong Kong) Construction Industry Council transformed ZCB into a “Climate Change and My Smart City” Experience Centre. Aligned with the Government’s plan to develop Hong Kong into a smart city, this new Experience Centre features four key themes, namely “Climate Change”, “Smart City & Sustainable Built Environment”, “Smart Living” and “Health & Well-being”. The exhibition applies Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and various gamification features to arouse public interest in smart city, which are conducive to the development of smart city in Hong Kong.



    Climate Change

    A short video produced by the Hong Kong Observatory shows the causes and severe impacts of climate change on our city. Also, a city model was built to illustrate various government initiatives on combating climate change.


    Smart City & Sustainable Built Environment

    • Building Information Modeling (BIM) VR experience: transforming a physical building into virtual reality to better understand its spatial design and surroundings hence streamlining construction procedures for engineers and architects
    • Construction site VR safety training: allowing users to walk around a virtual construction site under different conditions – safe, dangerous or fatal
    • Exoskeleton Suit (aka “Iron Man” on project site): greatly reducing the weights that construction workers bear, improving human strength, endurance and mobility. More importantly, it helps protect the backbone of the construction workers during lifting



     “Smart Living” and “Health & Well-being

    • Autonomous Electric Vehicle (MobiToTo): the first multi-functional autonomous vehicle in Hong Kong which can be used as a goods vehicle, entertainment and information hub, mobile library, and for holding meetings and weddings. It can be used as a creative showcase to demonstrate shared mobility, carbon reduction and traffic safety improvement
    • Hand of Hope: combining robotics and neuroscience, the device facilitates hand rehabilitation for stroke patients
    • Smart Mirror: a personal digital assistant which delivers useful public information and helps monitor your daily health
    • Intelligent Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Platform: a speedy and reliable retinal image analysis for possible diabetic eyes people through sophisticated camera
    • RFID Blind Cane Navigation system: audio guidance for the visually impaired



    The exhibition is now open for online registration for both group and individuals. Details as below:
