UWindsor, Telus partner to launch connected campus, lab


The University of Windsor has partnered with Telus to launch a 5G connected campus and commercial lab on campus. The Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation’s central space will be named the Telus Atrium in recognition of the company, which is investing $5M through a multi-year agreement. The lab will foster collaboration and multidisciplinary research using 5G technology in areas such as agriculture, manufacturing, and connected and autonomous vehicles. “By expanding our partnership with Telus, University of Windsor students and faculty members will have further opportunities to engage in meaningful research and sponsored participation in beneficial, industry-collaborative events and activities,” said UWindsor Interim VP, Research and Innovation Chris Houser.
