Currently, he is the Operation Assurance Manager of the Express Railway Line (XRL) under signalling trackside equipment maintenance contract. 

SMART Railway maintenance is crucial for the operations of current MTR SMART railway systems, as these are subject to strict requirements in terms of efficiency, cost-effectiveness, quality of service and scalability. Existing solutions for railway maintenance are, traditionally, either reactive or periodical, which are far from optimal. Nowadays, China Railway Construction (HK) Limited (CRCC) tends to take advantage of emerging techological tools and techniques, such as robotic systems, cloud-based operation, and intelligent data processing and information extraction/inference for supporting MTR SMART Railway operations. In fact, predictive maintenance is the core paradigm of what is now called Smart Railway Maintenance. This presentation provides an insight into Smart Railway Maintenance technologies, by introducing existing approaches to railway maintenance systems, identifying their limitations with respect to current requirements, presenting technologies with potential for supporting future Smart Railway Maintenance systems.
