The HKSAR Government earlier announced the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Development Blueprint, indicating active support to enterprises to let them seize opportunities for innovation and technology development. And the energy & potential of start-up tech companies should not be underestimated.
Various technology products emerged in response to the epidemic. Roborn, which is good at integrating technology into daily life, has joined hands with HKPC and contributed a lot to the anti-epidemic work with scientific research results through human-robot collaboration, including the development of elevator systems, AI property management systems, 5G remote control robotic dogs, etc. Further, we use data collection and real-time monitoring to effectively alleviate problems such as shortage of manpower and virus transmission.
Roborn is also committed to promoting the commercialization of scientific research and is one of the authorized operators of the “kNOw Touch” technology. This technology uses a non-contact method to reduce the risk of virus transmission when using elevators. It won the “Gold Medal with Congratulations of the Jury” at the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva 2021. Roborn actively promotes this technical solution to elevator facilities of different types of buildings, expands the application scenarios to different places other than elevators, and provides follow-up support services such as installation and maintenance.
Prof. Poon Ka Yeung, CEO of Roborn, said, “As a Hong Kong technology creator and participant, Roborn has been working closely with partners in Hong Kong and around the world, hoping to make Hong Kong a prosperous international innovation and technology hub through R&D and commercial applications. Being good at electronics, mechanical and information engineering motion technology, we are proud and honored to join HKPC and other world-class professional players.”
