The University of Windsor and TELUS announced Wednesday the launch of a 5G connected campus and commercial lab to support advanced research with 5G technology, and establish the university as a go-to centre for innovation.

TELUS is investing $5 million as part of a multi-year agreement that began in 2020 to fuel the development of new applications for 5G technology. The collaboration will not only support multidisciplinary research in the agriculture, advanced manufacturing, and connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) sectors, but will transform the UWindsor campus to enhance teaching, innovation, and collaboration.

Beyond the development of the 5G commercial lab, the central space in the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation will be named the TELUS Atrium. The area will foster collaborative concept discovery, ideation and creativity as students and researchers build solutions that meet today’s global challenges.

Initial joint projects include:

Equipping connected vehicles for cross-border travel using 5G

  • Working with the Ontario Vehicle Innovation Network (OVIN), Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and policy makers to better equip connected vehicles to solve cross border challenges, including congestion and supply chain obstacles, using 5G.

Developing new cybersecurity applications for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs)

  • In collaboration with Mitacs, a non-profit national research organization, this project will explore the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning to identify potential vulnerabilities and access points in CAVs, enhancing safety and security.

Exploring the effective use of AI and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors in high-tech greenhouses to enable more efficient food production

  • UWindsor has partnered with Horteca to launch a two-acre, fully operational, connected research greenhouse in Harrow, Ontario. Using 5G network technology, the greenhouse will use IoT and compute capabilities to make food production more scalable, while reducing cost and footprint.
