Winners of JEC Outstanding Engineering Project Awards 2017

 
The JEC Outstanding Engineering Project Awards (OEPA) was introduced to encourage future engineers to embrace changes for improvement and to be innovative in the engineering industry. Ever since the first OEPA was launched in 2005, students from various institutions have competed intensely for the Awards.
 
Winning projects of OEPA 2017 are as follows:
 
Gold Award
Project:
Biomimetic Soft Crawling Robot for GI Tract Inspection
Team members:
Pan Tianle, Heung Ho Lam, Zhuang Zhuoli, Ma Zhiyao
Institution:
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
Description:
The project team built an effective and patient-friendly robot for colon screening. The team combined soft robotic technique with capsule endoscopy into a soft earthworm-like robot.  By providing active locomotion, the robot can move inside the colon and carry modules for imaging, drug delivery, biopsy, etc. Proper colon screening can detect colon cancer and save life.
 
Silver Awards (listed in no particular order)
Project:
A Compact Chinese Calligraphic System (CCCS) for Personal and Commercial Use
Team members:
Leung Yun Yee, Lau Ka Chun
Institution:
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
Description:
The project team developed the CCCS to write Chinese calligraphy for personal and commercial use. The CCCS consists of two components: one is the robotic part that links to the writing brush while the other is the user interface controlling the brush strokes. This project is an example of the fusion between the Chinese calligraphy and technology.
 
Project:
Underwater Robot for Ocean Exploration
Team members:
Im Zhuo Quan, Cheung Ki Ki
Institution:
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Description:
The project team had built a small underwater robot for exploring the ocean safely and easily. This robot can be controlled through smart phones and adopted a modular design for easy repair and upgrade.
