Located on the 4th floor of the EMSD Headquarters Building, the E&M InnoZone is a venue for showcasing I&T project collaborations between the EMSD and universities start-ups and research institutions, where visitors can get to know how the EMSD employs innovative technologies to tackle the E&M engineering challenges faced by different government departments and public organisations.
The smart warehouse project won the first runner-up in the “Leading Towards Robotics Technologies Innovation Competition” and “the 2nd Inno@E&M Challenge Competition” in 2021. As the Innovation Facilitator, EMSD applied a new application combining automated guided vehicle (“AGV”), robot control system, warehouse management system and self-issuing locker, which would be the first smart warehouse among government departments and the first application integrating the technologies into one. The application enhances the work efficiency and increases storage capacity, as well as digitalizes the workflow from order submission to collection. The system automatically sends SMS messages to notify the relevant units to collect the orders from the e-locker, providing more convenience to the users.
Interactive Paper Drawing Solution provides a brand-new drawing experience for visitors to participate. By coloring three animal shape drawing paper including bear, giraffe and penguin, visitors can customize their own animal and turn their artwork into 3D. The lively animals then display in the 3D animal zone. Create and take a picture with your own masterpiece!
