We are excited to know that the project “BATS; Enabling the Nervous System of Smart Cities” led by Prof. Raymond Yeung, had won the Special Gold Medal (Gold Medal with Congratulations of the Jury) at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
BATS, a revolutionary network coding technology, has been adopted in the Hong Kong Government’s pilot deployment of smart lampposts that will commence in mid-2019. BATS can provide multi-hop wireless network connections for smart lampposts at low operating cost and high level of network security and stability. It provides a city-friendly and economical solution for mass deployment of smart lampposts, and so it expedites the advent of smart cities and improves people’s quality of life.
