The Hong Kong SAR Government implemented the home quarantine arrangement and the relevant departments need to ensure the quarantined person's presence in the designated quarantine premises. By installing a tracking device in the premises and pairing it with an e-wristband worn by the quarantined person, the system monitors the tracking device remotely on the received signals emitted from the e-wristband. If there are any abnormalities, the system will send out alerts.
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.
