Smart Barrier – Smart Landslide Detection System
Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in collaboration with Civil Engineering and Development (CEDD)
Mountainous terrain covers 60% of the land area of Hong Kong, and landslides may happen under conditions of continuous rainfall. If early signs of debris flow are not detected, it might cause casualties and losses. In response to this, CUHK’s Professor Cheng Chung-hang and his team successfully developed a smart landslide detection system to monitor real-time terrain conditions and transmit wireless data to the mobile devices of duty staff, using low-cost and low-energy sensing devices. Last year, in collaboration with the Geotechnical Engineering Office under the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD), CUHK conducted experiments in Sham Tseng where landslides had occurred. The system performed steadily under bad weather conditions during the experiment, demonstrating its ability to immediately notice any landslide activity on hillside near residential areas.
CEDD has implemented risk mitigation works for 30 natural hillside catchments per year since 2010, and thus far there have been over 200 debris-resisting barriers well built in the forms of rigid concrete barriers and flexible wire-mesh fence barriers. However, the diverse and remote locations of the different barriers and the variations in weather conditions impose practical difficulties for performing onsite checks for any accumulation of debris from natural landscape erosion.
In view of this, CEDD joined hands with CUHK Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management to design a landslide detection system mounted on debris-resistant barriers to monitor and give notice of any landslide activity. The system was piloted on the hillsides of Sham Tseng in November 2016. The pilot system, with sensing devices and system components, has been installed on 4 out of 19 debris-resistant barriers there. The sensing devices are designed to detect any impact when landslide debris hits the barrier wall, measure the debris accumulation level inside the barrier, and detect any inclination of the wire-mesh fence. In addition, there are infrared night vision cameras to provide a 24-hour visual context for landslide situation assessment. The authorities concerned can always then be alerted to any landslide activities in remote hillsides via the Landslide Detection System (LDS) mobile app in both iOS and Android platforms. Most importantly, it helps proactively provide timely data, especially under extreme weather conditions, to assess any landslide situation close to residential areas.

Family Harm is an app developed on behalf of the New Zealand Police. Domestic violence is one of the biggest issues facing New Zealand and accounts for half of violent crime and 40% of the police time. Family Harm provides several features to improve public safety and simplify police procedure. Historically, every domestic violence incident requires 14 pages of paperwork, which takes about 40 minutes to complete.
With over 120,000 incidents of domestic violence last year, the paperwork required amounted to nearly 1.5 million pages, so the challenge was to reduce it significantly thereby increasing the efficient use of police time. The app simplifies the documentation and provides a direct connection to the national police database. In terms of public safety, the Family Harm app gives the police access to information related to prior call outs, as well as the number of residents, and information about the area. The app allows the user to update the report, even after they have left the scene, allowing for the creation of a living document. This service has dramatically improved police workflow and public safety in various cities in New Zealand.
