Hong Kong ICT Awards 2019 (Student Innovation Award - Silver)

What made SOCIF today

HKICT award

We are grateful that our minibus Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) system was well recognized by the Hong Kong Information and Communication Technology (HKICT) Awards 2019 - Student Innovation Award, reminding us of our initial passion. We still remember the days studying at HKUST when we often have to take a minibus back to school. During the waiting for the minibus, we were well trained with our patience, while we also thought: What is the key solution to improve the present inconvenience waiting for a minibus?

Three students from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) felt uncomfortable because of the inconvenience caused by the unstable minibus schedules. Therefore, they set up a student research team, and approach the university, minibus operators and other stakeholders to negotiate. Completed the Proof-of-Concept (PoC), they actively participated in technology and information industry competitions, media interviews, thus having established a start-up, and officially launched minibus Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) services at HKUST... founding SOCIF today.
