In collaboration with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, LSCM developed a Big Data-Driven Airport Resource Management (BigARM) Engine to provide support for efficient and smart airport resource management. The application can balance the usage of reclaim belts in the Hong Kong International Airport and reduce the baggage collection time.
In order to reduce delivery stoppage caused by reclaim belt congestion, and thereby enable speedy baggage collection by the passengers. This project utilises BigARM to work out the optimal allocation of reclaim belts to arrival flights with the load of incoming baggage spreading evenly among the reclaim belts at all times.
Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre (LSCM) was founded in 2006, with funding from the Innovation and Technology Fund of The Government of the Hong Kong SAR, and is co-hosted by the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. It aims to strengthen the local logistics sector and related industries by providing a one-stop resource for applied research and technology transfer, and to reinforce cooperation between the industry and research institutes to bring about meaningful and significant impact on the industry and the community.
LSCM serves the industry by initiating research projects, contract research, as well as providing business matching opportunities, technology transfer and intellectual property commercialisation. LSCM initiates technology and knowledge transfer to the marketplace to promote industrial digitalisation, facilitate technology advancement and strengthen Hong Kong’s position as a leading logistics and commercial hub.
