[Policy]Hanyang will become ‘Unlosable Smart Campus’, never lost, always found

Hanyang University will be the first ‘Unlosable Smart Campus’ in Korea since March. A smart device that prevents the loss of items ‘Wichi’ (photo) will be provided free of charge to all freshmen students at Seoul Campus in 2017. Wichi looks similar to that of a car remote control, and it is composed of only one button so that it can be attached to any items such as a smart phone, bag, and laptop that are likely to be easily lost. It works through the Bluetooth function. If an item is lost, the smartphone application, designed to generate sound and light from the device, will be activated so that the item can be easily found. If the item is at a long distance (10 meters or more), it displays the last place where the item was placed on the map on smartphones. Wichi is a device developed by Hanyang University in cooperation with Wooyang Corporation, a subsidiary company of a technology holdings company established by Hanyang University. Wichi is particularly effective in preventing the loss of smartphones. This is because the device was designed that an alarm goes on when the button is pressed even at an silent mode in order to find where the smartphone is. An official at Hanyang University said, “Wichi will help students solve concerns of losing their items in libraries and classes’. Hanyang University recently announced that it has already passed the performance test done on a sample of students and gotten satisfactory results. Kim Jin-hong, the representative of Wooyang Corporation, said, "We will improve the functions after receiving feedbacks from freshmen for one year. If the satisfaction of Seoul campus students is high enough, we will expand the service to ERICA campus in the future. " ▲ Smart Device ‘Wichi’
