On November 8, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) announced that each product developed by Hanyang University President Lee Young-moo and Professor Kim Seon-jeong (Department of Electrical Biomedical Engineering) has been selected as the winner of the '2019 CES Innovation Award.'
The CES Innovation Award is given to innovative products by comprehensively evaluating design, technology, and consumer values in more than 30 fields such as home appliances. Hanyang University has won two innovation awards at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and the ceremony will be held in Las Vegas in early January of 2019. In addition, these products will be on display during the 2019 CES.
According to CES, President Lee Young-moo's award-winning work is a compact and mobile Oxygen Nitrogen Generator (named O2N2). It injects concentrated Nitrogen into storage containers such as wine, vegetables, etc., to maintain the taste and quality for much longer periods of time. It can also be used for people who need an oxygen supply or for those in need of concentrated oxygen after exercising. This product also allows the user to control the amount of oxygen and nitrogen concentration through the use of mobile IoT technology.
Professor Kim Seon-jeong's award-winning work is the Self-powered Emergency Signal Device. The device is designed to produce electricity from sea waves without batteries by utilizing a GPS signal transmission and LED light emission to facilitate rescue operations in marine emergency situations. This device was developed by Professor Kim and its primary uses in the future include military, aviation, and space industries as a technology that can supplement or replace battery dependent technologies.
Meanwhile, Professor Lee Young-moo, who is famous for being a 'Researching President,' has published a thesis on the separation membranes in Science in the world's top scientific journal. Professor Kim Seon-jeong has also published a thesis on the subject of 'Room to produce electricity itself' in Science. Both professors have used their own research to develop innovative products that were not in existence before.
An official at Hanyang University has stated, "We have achieved a remarkable feat by receiving the two innovation awards at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and we will continue education and research that will empower society through practical academics that our university pursues."
Meanwhile, the products that were awarded at CES were completed with support from the Ministry of Education Creative Assets Commercialization support (BRIDGE +) project and the Leader researcher Support Project of Korea Research Foundation of the Ministry of Science and Information Communication Technology.
