Development and implementation of an advanced automobile parking navigation platform for parking services
To fulfill the requirements of the industry, PolyU researchers developed the Advanced Automobile Parking Navigation Platform, which includes smart devices, software modules and middleware.
The platform integrate various emerging technologies, such as IoTbased cloud service, wireless sensor and actuator network (WSAN), WSAN middleware, Near Field Communication (NFC), etc.
The platform aims to enhance the parking system efficiency by providing a system for vacant parking spaces monitoring and intelligent facility management. Besides, it also provides a novel automobile parking navigation services and gives drivers a new parking experience.
Special Features and Advantages:
• Real-time Operation Monitoring
• Intelligent Parking Navigation
• Electric Vehicle Vacancy Enquiry and Reservation
• NFC-enabled CRM on Mobile Device
• Cargo Terminal
• Distribution Centre
• Logistics Centre / Warehouse
• Car Park etc.
• Gold Medal with the Congratulations of Jury- 43rd International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, Switzerland (April 2015)
• Special Merit Award from The National Research Council of Thailand (April 2015)
• Big Data Analysis Award 2014 on Variety (December 2014)
• Silver Award - IoT Implementation Excellence of Hong Kong IoT Awards 2014 (September 2014)
• Silver Award - IoT Application Innovation of Hong Kong IoT Awards 2014 (September 2014)

Experimental progress towards engineering quantized gauge fields coupled to ultracold matter promises a versatile platform to tackle problems ranging from condensed-matter to high-energy physics
The interaction between fields and matter is a recurring theme throughout physics. Classical cases such as the trajectories of one celestial body moving in the...
Soft robots have a distinct advantage over their rigid forebears: they can adapt to complex environments, handle fragile objects and interact safely with humans. Made from silicone, rubber or other stretchable polymers, they are ideal for use in rehabilitation exoskeletons and robotic clothing. Soft bio-inspired robots could one day be deployed to explore remote or dangerous environments.
Most soft robots are actuated by rigid, noisy pumps that push fluids into the machines' moving parts. Because they are connected to these bulky pumps by tubes,...
Researchers at TU Graz are working together with European partners on new possibilities of measuring vehicle emissions.

Over the next three years, researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, University of Cambridge, École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI-Paris) and Empa will be working together with the Dutch Polymer manufacturer SupraPolix on the next generation of robots: (soft) robots that ‘feel pain’ and heal themselves. The partners can count on 3 million Euro in support from the European Commission.
Soon robots will not only be found in factories and laboratories, but will be assisting us in our immediate environment. They will help us in the household, to...
Scientists at the University of Leeds have created a new form of gold which is just two atoms thick - the thinnest unsupported gold ever created.
The researchers measured the thickness of the gold to be 0.47 nanometres - that is one million times thinner than a human finger nail. The material is regarded...
