Augmented Reality for Maintenance and Inspection
Imagine you are an engineer who needs to document damage on the surfaces of commercial aircraft or large shipping vessels. This project will create a tool to enable the display of data in an augmented reality view to improve the safety, accuracy and cost of inspections of these very large objects.
Lead: Boeing

<strong><noscript><img src=Precision Agriculture to Improve Crop Health
In the face of climate change, increasing threats from pests and pathogens are impacting our environment and food security. This project is developing new pest, and pathogen controls through the application of computational biochemistry, genomics, machine learning, computer vision and robotics, to manage disease in field crops, minimize the use of pesticides, and secure export markets.

<strong><noscript><img src=Reducing Opioid Use for Pain Management
Up to 10% of surgery patients who are prescribed opioids may become addicted. This project is developing an active monitoring system to enable physicians to improve pain management, and proactively manage opioid prescriptions and their use in surgery patients to allow for personalized evaluation of a patient’s use of opioids and response to pain and optimize treatment.

Given the size and diversity of Canada, a one-size-fits-all COVID-19 solution does not make sense for the entire country. In response, this project aims to fill information gaps by consolidating and harmonizing vast arrays of data to synthesize and display relevant, meaningful information for businesses and the general public.

Climate change is a threat to food security, with increasing challenges from pests and pathogens that destroy crops. With an initial focus on leaf rust disease in barley and wheat, this project will develop new pest and pathogen controls through the application of computational biochemistry, genomics, machine learning, and robotics.

Physicians need to balance pain management with prescribed medications; recognizing that up to 6% of surgery patients are at risk of becoming opioid abusers. This project is building a post-surgery monitoring system that will collect patient data and provide doctors with the information they need to better manage the prescription and use of opioids.
