(1) ePlatform for Heritage Inheritance and Preservation (eHIP)
Students: Cheng Mei Na, Ng Chun Kit
Project Supervisors: Dr W.H. Ip and Prof. Benny Cheung
From information and communication technologies perspective, this project incorporated the ideas of smartphone and location-based services to initiate an interactive geo-social networking platform (eHIP) for heritage to attain cultural sustainability.
People use their smartphones tapping the RFID tags placed on designated sites and getting access to eHIP to share and acquire information instantly. The platform favors memories accumulation which visualizes collective memory and contributes to timeline, upholding the slogan “Tag for our memory, tag for our history, and tag for our next generation!”
