HK supports new work office


3 smart traffic projects funded

The Transport Department today announced that a first batch of three projects have been approved under the Smart Traffic Fund, involving a total grant of around $8 million.   The three projects are HKSafeDriver, network-wide traffic speed-flow estimator, and investigation of an online data-driven intelligent automation platform for drivers considering the psychological condition instability and behaviours for a sustainable and safe transportation system.   The $1 billion Smart Traffic Fund provides funding support to local organisations and enterprises for conducting research and application of innovation and technology with the objectives of enhancing commuting convenience, enhancing road network or road space efficiency, and improving driving safety.   The department appeals to interested parties for participation to help make the fund a success, and to build Hong Kong into a liveable and sustainable city by driving towards a new era of transportation.   The fund accepts applications all year round.
