A team from IHPC's Computing Science Department did IHPC proud by clinching 2nd prize at the final round of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore's (IDA) Apps4SG competition on 8 January 2014. Led by Dr Qin Zheng and Kevin Veragoo, the team from the CS Department came up with Route My Day, a mobile app that allows users to plan their day by suggesting a route that accomplishes all of their tasks at maximum efficiency. Other team members include: Dr Rick Goh, Dr Duan Rubing, Dr Wang Wenqiang, Jimmy Ong, Xin Xin and Low Bingjiang.

The team was lauded for its good usage of government geospatial data from OneMap.Sg to address a real need for Singapore, and walked away with $5000 in cash.

The competition, along with mentions of IHPC and the Route My Day app, was reported in various media including Lianhe Zaobao, Enterprise Innovation and MIS Asia.
