Two FST projects supervised by Dr. Robert P. Biuk-Aghai won the first and second prize at the Macau ICT Awards competition 2007.

At the Macau ICT Awards competition 2007, organized by the Macau Computer Association, two FST projects won first and second prize, respectively:

  1. Gold Award (First Prize): GSM-Based Positioning and Application for Macau

    This project has developed a positioning system for GSM-based mobile phones that is independent of the mobile network provider. It allows an ordinary mobile phone to estimate its position with a precision of within 100m using only the data of received base station signals and without relying on any positioning data from the mobile network provider. Three value-added applications were also developed: a remote position request application, a position trail application, and a position trigger notification application.

    Students: Ip Ka Fai (Percy), Mok Ieng Ioi (Moray), and Ng Ka Wai (Vito).
    Supervisor: Dr. Robert P. Biuk-Aghai, Department of Computer and Information Science.


  2. Silver Award (Second Prize): Traffic Fine System

    This project has developed a PDA-based application to automate the task of issuing fines by the traffic police. A handheld application is used to enter details of the traffic offense and to print out a fine paper using a portable printer. A server application deployed in the police station is used for synchronizing fine data from all traffic fine PDAs, and for producing statistical summaries, charts and reports about traffic fines.

    Students: Chan Heng (Clark) and Pang Cheong Iao (Patrick).
    Supervisor: Dr. Robert P. Biuk-Aghai, Department of Computer and Information Science.
