Smart Power Supply, Indoor Navigation, GBA Cargo Track-and-Trace Solution Celebrated
HONG KONG, Nov. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Steered by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer and co-organised by GS1 Hong Kong, the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2023 – Smart Mobility Award Presentation Ceremony was held today. The award has three categories: Smart Tourism, Smart Logistics, and Smart Transport. They are selected by evaluation and one-by-one interviews by the Assessment and Judging panels. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award and certificates of merit are awarded to the contestants based on their performance.
This year, TriTerra Technology Limited won the “Grand Award of the Smart Mobility Award” and the “Smart Mobility (Smart Tourism) Gold Award” with its “Kaihon1000 Smart Power Station”. Size of a handbag, the portable power supply has 7 power sockets to support the needs of different electrical appliances (such as mini refrigerators, cooking stoves, etc), suited for occasions like camping, extended outdoor work (such as filming), and during power outages at home. In addition to the solar charging function that helps prolong usage, it is equipped with IP55 water- and dust-proof features and users can remotely connect, operate and monitor operation using a mobile phone. The judging panel agreed that it is a practical and environmentally friendly solution, with immense potential to expand into the global markets.
Other cutting-edge winning entries include the first mobility solution that monitor the journey of Greater Bay Area cargo transshipment, characterised by its blockchain and emerging mobile technologies use; also the smart mobility app that utilises spatial data to provide indoor and outdoor navigation for the visually impaired and the needed, offering a barrier-free navigation experience with uninterrupted voice guidance.

The award winners will have the opportunity to represent Hong Kong to compete in the “13th Guangdong-HK-Macau IoT Competition” with a few dozens of contestants from mainland China. Hong Kong representatives have achieved great results in this competition before, for example 2 entries won the “Best IoT Application” and the “Best IoT Innovation” last year, indicating that local innovative technologies and solutions can shine bright in and out of Hong Kong.
Anna Lin, Chief Executive of GS1 Hong Kong, congratulated the winners and is pleased to see the robust I&T development and adoption of creative applications in the city. “This year, we applaud beyond the public and private sector winners, but also celebrate the creative mind of individual who have fostered a culture of innovation in smart mobility. The winning entries are tuned in to today’s environment, some by incorporating low-carbon, sustainability elements, while some tap into the GBA growth opportunities, addressing the current issues and trends.
