A facility designed for nano-scale research by controlling air pollutant levels, pressurization, temperature, and humidity is slated to open in 2019.

Josh Jaekel and Jalal AhamedJosh Jaekel and Jalal Ahamed have developed a personalized navigation system that has the potential to assist the visually impaired and those in low-visibility environments. The wearable smart device can track steps and map out surrounding obstacles in real-time.

Technology pioneered at UWindsor aims to assist visually impaired

UWindsor engineering researchers have developed a personalized navigation system that uses motion and acoustic wave sensors to detect nearby objects.

Austin LiolliAustin Liolli, a second-year electrical and computer engineering student and member of UWindsor’s MicroNanoSystems Research Group, displays a 3D lab-on-a-chip developed at UWindsor. He will present his LOC research at the International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition on November 15 in Phoenix, Arizona, as one of the top five finalists in the prestigious Young Engineer Paper contest.
