Technical Visit: 3M Innovation Centre

The 3M Customer Innovation Center (3M CIC) is a one-of-a-kind facility, designed to showcase how they collaborate with customer to explore creative solutions to help customers’ business grow and succeed.

From the moment you enter the 3M CIC, you enter a world where anything is possible. You will see previously unknown technologies and fascinating, practical real life applications. A team of highly trained, informative hosts from a variety of 3M technical and professional backgrounds will guide you on your journey of discovery.

At the very heart of the 3M CIC, you will experience interactive displays and live demonstrations that connect the guests to the depth and breath of 3M: technologies, processes, products and a culture of collaboration.

Workshop 1: Human Factors and Safer Design

Human factors can be described as people’s contributions to damaging events. It is the generic term for the psychological and physiological patterns that contribute to operational errors in handling machines and vehicles. This concept is now recognised by the road safety profession as an important factor in road safety. Major highlight of the workshop is The Human Factors (HF) Guideline developed by the World Road Association (PIARC). The aim is to provide road safety engineers involved in all aspects of road operations (planning, design, construction and maintenance) a guideline to improve the identification of human factor design mistakes. The report of Human Factors Guideline for safer road infrastructure is introduced by comparing the two distinct approaches to accident research. The post-accident approach assesses the safety of a design by reviewing the consequences of an accident. The pre-accident approach on the other hand, through the human factors concept, takes into consideration the triggers of the driver’s reaction and patterns of behaviour which may lead to an accident. Among the case study that will be discussed is a 2015 study on crash spots of severe single-vehicle crashes on Dutch motorways. PIARC’s guideline provides extra background knowledge on top of the knowledge provided in the design standards and guidelines for RSI and RSA.

Workshop 2: Intelligent Transport System (ITS) for safer road

In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), or sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines. These intelligent machines and systems are defining human’s life in many aspects, including transportation systems. Using recent AI technologies, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) aims to provide innovative services relating to different modes of transport and traffic management and enable users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks. ITS make use of AI in various applications but not limited to interconnected vehicles, smart sensors, automatic road enforcement, traffic management and monitoring, vehicle control systems and collision avoidance systems. In this workshop, participants will understand the concept of AI and its applications in ITS. Participant can learn about sensors used on driverless vehicles, and Deep Learning implementations for automatic visual understanding through demonstrations of these technologies using MATLAB software. Participants will also be guided to implement Deep Learning using open-source framework such as TensorFlow and Python programming.

Participants are required to bring their own laptop. Please install Phyton 3.7 from https://www.anaconda.com/distribution/#download-section
