The Ontario government recently announced a $2.5 million investment into Facedrive Inc. to support the development and deployment of the contact tracing system TraceSCAN.
The purpose of this project is to develop an artificial intelligence alert system for COVID-19 based on contact tracing and health monitoring using Bluetooth-enabled wearable technology and mobile app. The University of Waterloo has partnered with Facedrive Inc. to conduct research/development in areas such as AI-based models to better predict outbreak patterns of COVID-19 and any subsequent pandemics.
MME professor Sanjeev Bedi recently won the F2020 semester Teaching Excellence Award for providing an exceptional online learning experience for his students. During lectures, professor Bedi always gives real-life examples and makes sure to connect with each and every student to ensure each student is understanding the material. He is a friend to all his students and will often emphasize tips on how to balance both school and a healthy lifestyle.
Professor Worswick, co-Director of the Forming and Crash Lab, has received the Auto/Steel Partnership (A/SP) Award of Excellence, recognizing the Lab’s extensive collaborative research with A/SP.
Run Ze Gao, PhD candidate and CEO of Air Microfluidics Systems (AMS) Inc. recently won the 2021 Falcon's Fortune Pitch run by Ontario-based venture firm, FACIT. AMS, the startup co-founded by Gao and MME professor Carolyn Ren, were recognized for the novel concept of an air microfluidics-enabled compression sleeve to treat breast cancer-related lymphedema.
Four MME graduate students recently won second-place at McMaster University's 2021 CAD Designathon Competition for designing a Covid-19 automatic vaccination device. Their design demonstrated considerably higher vaccination rates than current manual methods.
Congratulations to Kris Jiang, Kshitij Kadiya, Syed Mujtaba Ahmad, and Yashesh Dasari.
