CUHK Robotics and Innovation Day: Showcasing the Automated Building Structure Inspection and Management Platform

Chen Xi introduced a new platform that uses drones for indoor environmental inspections. These drones are capable of fully autonomous flight even without GPS signals, and are equipped with collision avoidance systems to prevent collisions with obstacles. The platform is fully automated and can control multiple drones simultaneously to inspect buildings. This is a significant improvement compared to the current method of manually operating a single drone, increasing efficiency by at least three times. Additionally, the team has built a dedicated architectural image database and optimized it using artificial intelligence models, resulting in a detection accuracy of over 90%.

The price of the drones used on this platform varies depending on the type, ranging from tens of thousands to over one hundred thousand yuan, while the overall development cost of the project is in the hundreds of thousands of yuan. Chen Xi pointed out that although the inspection results currently require the signature approval of professionals, if the AI inspection results can be standardized, the verification process can be eliminated, leading to cost savings of over half. The team is currently in discussions with property management companies and various government departments on how to implement the platform in practice. They are also planning to register a company in the second half of this year and seek investors to expand their business.

During the open day exhibition, the Science Park also showcased other key projects, including a "Micro-Robot Platform for Intravascular Interventional Therapy" developed by Professor Zhang Li from the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. This platform uses micro and nanorobotics technology and magnetic drive systems for research. There was also the "Quadruped Robot Sirius" developed by Professor Liu Yunhui, Director of the Chariot Robotics Institute at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Logistics Robotics Research Center, which is used for cargo transportation. Additionally, DepthVision Limited, a startup company, showcased their "TransCam 3D," a 3D camera that can quickly and accurately reconstruct transparent objects.

Overall, the Science Park's open day showcased several innovative technology projects. Chen Xi's platform utilizing drones for indoor environmental inspections is efficient and promising. With the advancement of technology, these projects have the potential for practical applications and can bring about further development opportunities. The Science Park will continue to support the development of these innovative projects, injecting new vitality into Hong Kong's technology industry.
