Tech Talk: Cyber-Physical Internet (CPI) for Cross-Border Logistics of Manufactured Products (Supported by CMA

Date: 06/10/2022
Time : 16:30-15:30
Venue: Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing Two, G/F Run Run Shaw Building, HKU and Online
Language : English
Contact Person: Dr. C.K. Chui, the Director of the Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing , Faculty of Engineering, HKU

The captioned event is organized by the Hong Kong University and Supported by CMA. Tech Talk is a series of forums and dialogues given by engineering researchers of diverse academic backgrounds to share their insights on innovation-related topics.
The vision of “Cyber-Physical Internet (CPI)” is to establish a new paradigm for sending and receiving manufactured goods just like sending and receiving instant messages over the internet using online chatting platforms.
Four innovations are critical to achieve this ultimate vision: (1) digitization architecture for entangling the flows of information and materials into one flow of cyber-physical objects for manufacturing and logistics operations; (2) network services for configuring local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN) and catchment area network (CAN); (3) value mechanisms to motivate and facilitate participation and collaboration between multiple stakeholders including shippers, carriers, forwarders; and (4) decision analytics for synchronized logistics planning, scheduling and execution. These innovations are based upon some fundamental breakthroughs of CPI routers and TCP/PIP protocols that are yet to be developed.
