The Automatic Meter Reading System developed by the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) has received The Hong Kong ICT 2017: Best Business Solution (Application) Bronze Award on 31 March 2017.
ASTRI’s Automatic Meter Reading System allows operators to monitor water systems in real-time. Applied through both wired and wireless detectors across the systems, it facilitates data analysis, supports user enquiry, and allows timely access to water quality information.
In addition, the ultrasound meter detects water leakage and improves the efficiency of water usage. The water leakage alert system, along with the leakage detection hardware, uses Complex Event Processing systems to solve water leakage problem and improves the service providers’ operational efficiency.
By installing a mobile app, end-users can check and settle the payments accordingly The operating party can also run promotional campaigns by sharing latest product and marketing information with the consumers through the mobile app.
ASTRI’s Automatic Meter Reading System has smart valve with built-in sensors to transmit critical data (e.g. pressure, flow rate) that helps to ensure for efficient leakage management. The valve even works in unfavourable and hostile conditions.
Hunan, Henan, Jiangxi and Guangdong provinces in China have already deployed this system with over 10,000 end users.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards aims at recognising and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong’s ICT talents and enterprises in their constant pursuit of creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs.
