A $100,000 grant from Google will support development of a new class of wireless biosensors by researchers at Waterloo’s Wireless Sensors and Devices Lab.

Lab director George Shaker says for the last couple of years his team has been working on electromagnetic-enabled AI-powered systems to be able to diagnose and monitor several diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular abnormalities, neurodegenerative and many others.

An intelligent antenna developed by researchers at Waterloo Engineering has been successfully tested, a major milestone in a multi-year, multi-million-dollar project.

The phased array antenna system for next-generation communications can be electronically steered to maintain links to overhead satellites for Internet connectivity.

A technology startup company founded by two Waterloo Engineering professors has earned a spot in the finals of an international pitch competition for water innovations.

AquaSensing, which was launched by George Shaker and Norman Zhou in 2019, booked its spot in the global Water Dragons event by finishing second in an Ontario heat featuring eight companies.

Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have developed a palm-sized device to monitor glucose levels in people with diabetes using radar and artificial intelligence (AI), not painful finger pricks to draw blood.

The new technology is safe, fast and accurate, and works by sending radio waves through the skin and into blood vessels when users place the tip of their finger on a touchpad.

Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have developed a tiny, battery-free, self-powering sensor that could dramatically reduce the cost of protecting buildings from damaging water leaks.

The new device, housed in a box just three centimetres square, is the product of a collaboration between professors Norman Zhou and George Shaker.

A new partnership between the University of Waterloo and Rogers Communications will focus on 5G research in the areas of engineering, network design, applied mathematics and artificial intelligence.

Announced today, the three-year, multimillion dollar partnership on the cutting-edge wireless technology will also involve building a 5G network on campus to test network infrastructure, frequencies and applications.

A small, inexpensive sensor developed by researchers at Waterloo Engineering could save lives by alerting people when children or pets have been left behind in vehicles.

Just three centimetres in diameter, the sensor – which combines radar technology and artificial intelligence (AI) – would trigger an alarm after detecting an unattended child or animal.

Waterloo Engineering researchers have developed new radar technology to wirelessly monitor heart and breathing rates instead of hooking patients up to machines.

“We take the whole complex process and make it completely wireless,” said George Shaker, a cross-appointed professor of electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical and mechatronics engineering.
