Introduction to the center

In July 2018, the University of Macau (UM) received the approval of the Ministry of Science and Technology for the establishment of the nation’s first state key laboratory in the Internet of Things for smart city. The laboratory aims to provide for the needs of the country with the expertise of Macao and develop itself into a world-class laboratory with local characteristics. By solving the key scientific and technical issues of the Internet of Things for smart city, the laboratory will put forward common theories, algorithms and systems that are of fundamental importance, and develop exemplary applications for smart city. 

Closely connected with IOTSC, Smart City Research Center at ZUMRI has an experimental area covering 300 square meters, fully equipped with 1 server, 4 workstations, 9 mobile workstations, 2 software and 13 advanced computing platforms. The lab contributes to facilitating research commercialization and development in the Greater Bay Area.

The global objective of the laboratory covers the following five aspects: building a world-class platform which is people-oriented and integrates industry, academia and research; rallying a corps of top-notch scholars with international prestige; nurturing a cohort of well-rounded individuals who are patriotic, community-conscious, and competent at theoretical research and innovation; producing a batch of significant outputs with international impact; and developing a high-end think tank that knows the city well to serve local economic development. The laboratory has established its research offices on five fronts: intelligent sensing and network communication; urban big data and intelligent technology; smart energy; intelligent transportation; and public safety and disaster prevention. The first two have the purposes of establishing a research and development platform for the smart city and carrying out impactful scientific and technological research. The other three aim at typical applications to contribute to the moderate diversification of Macao’s economy. The laboratory has a talent pool of 3 chair and distinguished professors, 20 professors, associate professors, assistant professors and lecturer including 1 Foreign member of Academia Europaea, 1 RAE Fellow, 2 IEEE Fellows. Currently, the lab is led by 1 Director, 1 Assistant Director, 3 Academic Leaders and 6 administrative staffs and technicians. 

During 2019 – 2020, the lab has been awarded one Science and Technology Progress Award from Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation, one First Prize Scientific and Technological Progress Award of Guangdong Province and one Second Prize in the Natural Science Award of the Macao S&T Award, published six monographs and 203 academic papers, and obtained national and provincial-level funding for nearly 30 research projects with a total amount of MOP 55 million. Among them, Associate Professor Wanhuan ZHOU received the Excellent Young Scientists Fund from the National Natural Science Foundation of China. The AI-related project entitled ‘Research on Key Technologies and Platforms for Collaborative Intelligence Driven Auto-Driving Cars’ has been listed under the Macao Funding Scheme for Key R&D Projects of the Science and Technology Development Fund (FDCT). Another two projects related to the operation and maintenance of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge were funded respectively by the National Key R&D Programme of the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Key R&D Programme of the Guangdong provincial government.

Expert team

Relying on the State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City which has established the Hengqin branch in ZUMRI, participates in the construction of smart Hengqin, builds an Internet of Things ecosystem for Macao’s urban development, and serves the transformation and upgrading of Macao and the Greater Bay Area.

Research achievements

Conscientiously working on basic research and innovations, we have been awarded 3 major prizes, published 6 Chinese and English monographs & 203 academic papers, obtained national and provincial-level funding for nearly 30 research projects with total project funding exceeded MOP55 million. Moreover, we have been actively collaborating with various academic units & scientific institutes, successfully launched 3 Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Joint Laboratories. We hope to master key technologies and actively support the development of smart cities in Macau and China.
