BDT aims to participate in the development of “Smart Community”, especially in energy and health fields. Apart from new technologies to generate energy, digital networking and data could sharing will make energy management more efficient. Likewise, promising procedures have been emerging for diagnosing and curing human diseases, while smart network facilitates point-of-care or even remote care.
Smart Energy. Green, renewable, and efficient energy generation and management. Based on REN21's 2017 report, renewables contributed 19.3% to humans' global energy consumption and 24.5% to their generation of electricity in 2015 and 2016, respectively. This energy consumption is divided as 8.9% coming from traditional biomass, 4.2% as heat energy (modern biomass, geothermal and solar heat), 3.9% hydroelectricity and 2.2% is electricity from wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass. Worldwide investments in renewable technologies amounted to more than US$286 billion in 2015, with countries such as China and the United States heavily investing in wind, hydro, solar and biofuels. As a small step, BDT is currently engaged in the research and development of solid oxide fuel cells. We also can participate in renewable energy generation, such as biofuel or solar cells.
Smart Healthcare. The interdisciplinary research of nanotechnology and biomedical application yields an emerging field of nanomedicine, which seeks to develop functional agents for in vivo bioimaging (diagnosis), advanced drug delivery, and innovative therapy. Nanomedicine for bioimaging is a contrast agent modified with functional moieties to target a specific part-of-interest, such as cancer cells or tumor tissues. Valuable in situ diagnostic information can be obtained only when both the bioimaging nanomedicine and the ultrasound-optical hybrid system are communicating. Subsequently, a secondary nanomedicine that contains a therapeutic or regenerative drug will be deployed to the part-of-interest, and the drug release could be triggered precisely by non-invasive means, such as ultrasound, optics, magnet, or heat. In a best-case scenario, the therapy or regeneration process can be monitored real-time through the bioimaging. The interactive cooperation between these two procedures will provide accurate and effective treatment for human diseases. We have dedicated ourselves to develop future nanomedicines and will continue to do so.
Smart Enforcement. Our point-of-enforcement testing system is specifically designed to serve the enforcement authorities or subcontractors. Not only we provide a rapid, accurate, sensitive, and portable immunoassay-based device for on-site screening testing for drug, poison, explosive, or plant disease, but also our device includes a smart data storage and sharing feature. The on-site testing result is immediately available in the database remotely.
