Driving the development of e-Government infrastructure
AI Chinese-style Foot Drill Learning StationSince 1 July 2022, the Correctional Services Department has fully adopted the Chinese-style foot drill to demonstratecorrectional officers’ patriotic feelings for our country.  In the meantime, through the performance of Chinese-style foot drill in various ceremonial events, the spirit of patriotism can be promoted to stakeholders from various sectors, and thepublic’s sense of national identity and national pride can also be strengthened. In order to effectively help recruit trainees master the skill sets of Chinese-style foot drill, the Hong Kong CorrectionalServices Academy has developed the AI Chinese-style Foot Drill Learning Station, which covers a wide range of data.  First, it has recorded the Chinese-style foot drill performance by the Guard of Honour of the Hong Kong Garrison of thePeople’s Liberation Army, which serves as the standard movements for learning.  Second, relevant guidelines and rules of the Chinese-style foot drill (such as the angle of each movement) are incorporated in the AI system.  Third, thetraining data obtained from the AI image analysis together with the manual score adjustment by teaching officers, if any, can produce an assessment score.  As the AI system can learn on its own at the same time, this can increase theaccuracy of its assessment. After every training session, the teaching officers will replay the training video and adjust the score if there are anydeviations from the standard movements.  The substantial amount of data collected will be used to enhance theanalytical capabilities of the system, thus enabling it to learn.  The AI Chinese-style Foot Drill Learning Stationprecisely captures users’ movements so that it can analyse each movementin detail. Take salute asan example. Throughanalysing a user’s joint angles of the left and right legs, the difference in height of both shoulders, the joint angles of the left and right elbows, the head turning angle, the neck bone angle, etc., the artificial intelligence will generate scores, from which the user can gain a better understanding of his/herweaknesses and make improvement accordingly.  The AIChinese-style Foot Drill Learning Station will also collect a wide range of data of the recruit trainees, such as theresponse time to commands, the pace and the angles of body movements, etc. for analysis and evaluation by the artificialintelligence.

Given its large catchment area, rapid surge in water level might be resulted from heavy rainfall, posing a danger to construction workers. In order to further reduce the safety hazards for the construction works at temporary working platform and cofferdam in Kai Tak River, smart safety helmets are deployed to closely monitor the condition of workers. This smart helmet provides solutions to the project team for identifying any unauthorised access into the cofferdams and thus enhancing the access control. Besides, announcement can be made to the workers remotely via the speaker equipped on each Smart Helmet, thereby enabling the workers and site supervisory staff reacting to any emergency circumstances in time.
5G Smart Door Lock, Worker Management System,  Automatic Deformation Monitoring System, Smart Over-height Vehicle Detection SystemSmart door lock is a lightweight, low-cost product for mobile asset management solutions. It supports GPS/Beidou positioning, provides time tracking and supports remote change of product configuration parameters.  Smart door lock can replace traditional keys with key cards to facilitate offline/online, cloud platform, and smartphone management.  It can keep track of who, when, and in what way that lock is, with logging of violation records for follow-up.Worker management system utilises a wireless Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) meshing network to route messages from tags to anchors and gateways. It transmits data to the central server for monitoring the positioning of workers in tunnel.Automatic Deformation Monitoring System (ADMS) is deployed to monitor the movement and settlement on the sensitive structures in real-time, which greatly ensures that the construction works under this Project would not disturb the daily operation of the sensitive structures (e.g. MTRC TCL Tunnels). ADMS consists of total stations, monitoring prisms, stable reference points and control software.  It collects the vertical and lateral movement data and send back to the central management platform for monitoring the conditions of the sensitive structures. The results of ADMS monitoring data would be served by web and accessed by the related parties from remote site.  It has a strict requirement for minimum data lost as the operation cost of the sensitive structures would be very high due to any disturbance from the existing construction works.  Provided with high accuracy monitoring data, ADMS is a reliable and flexible system for monitoring the daily operation work. Once individual monitoring points triggered the Alarm, Alert or Action (AAA) values, the system will send messages notification to all related parties.  Such automatic alarm system allows the relevant parties back on the real time results and swiftly take appropriate actions in due course.This system aimed to avoid over-height vehicles(OV)hitting the temporary portal frame for bridge construction and to safeguard workers working at the portal frame. When OV is detected by the 3-D LIDAR devices, a series of warning lights and sirens along the carriageway and at the portal frame will be triggered to alert the drivers and workers respectively. At the same time, image of the OV will be captured by the high speed camera and the Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) of the OV will be recongised by AI technology.  The system adopted the 5G network for transmission and within approximately 3 seconds after the detection, a warning message with the VRM of the OV will be displayed on the LED display panel at the scene. An alert message will also be sent to the construction team's mobile phones for their necessary actions.
AI Camera for Detection of Safety Helmet (CEDD)Artificial Intelligence (AI) Camera for Site Monitoring VideoWith the adoption of AI analytics and machine learning tools, the AI camera can effectively identify potential  hazard at the site, and thus achieving automatic monitoring and enhancement of site safety. For example, the AI camera can identify the workers who cross the haul roads at non-designated locations, whether the workers are equipped with proper personal protective equipment (e.g. safety helmet) and enter the restricted zone. If any potential hazard is identified, the concerned workers will be alerted and the site supervisory staff will be notified for immediate follow-up action.In addition, the AI camera can also recognize construction vehicles and determine the cleanliness of wheels of vehicles.

Geospatial Lab (GeoLab) provides a platform for the young generation, startups and creative minds to discuss, explore and exchange ideas for harnessing the potential of spatial data. GeoLab organises activities such as competitions, workshops and talks, to raise public interest and explore the value and application of spatial data. The 3D Digital Map, which is one of the building blocks of CSDI, is to facilitate opening up and sharing of Government spatial data. To meet the increasing needs of 3D Digital Map applications and enhance better understanding of multi-level spaces of a modern city like Hong Kong, the Government aims to develop the high-quality 3D Digital Map by phases and strives to cover the whole territory by end 2023. Government BIM Data Repository (GBDR) serves as a centralised common data repository for BIM sharing among Lands Department and Works Departments. It stores and shows design and as-built BIM models (hereinafter the Models) in native and open formats for effective and efficient information exchange. The Models provide rich geometric and semantic information for supporting 3D Digital Map. It is hosted in Government Cloud Infrastructure Services (GCIS) of Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) for easy access by different WDs via Government Backbone Network (GNet).
