A device that detects if someone is drowning in a pool to help relieve a parent’s worry. A wireless gadget to more quickly identify fires, so everyone gets to safety. A system to track and assist people with Alzheimer’s to help calm a family’s fears when they’re not present. These are just a few examples of projects designed for social good by students in the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Mathematics graduate course, IoT and Intelligent Connectivity.
