The next big innovation to hit the marketplace could be among the Waterloo student projects on display at the annual Capstone Design symposia beginning March 16. 

Senior-year engineering students at Waterloo will exhibit projects ranging from a technology that reduces agricultural water waste through intelligent irrigation systems to a device that may help people with Parkinson`s disease avoid falls.

An easy-to-use system that enables farmers to reduce agricultural water waste through real-time data cleaned up at this year's Canadian Engineering Competition held at McGill University March 4-6.

Designed by five electrical and computer engineering students, Project Reservoir is an agricultural water control and environmental monitoring system consisting of low-cost field sensors which collect real-time soil and environmental conditions.
