Visualization & Sensors Lab

Visualization & Sensors Lab 

The Visualization & Sensors Lab (VSL) is a unique environment that supports projects requiring data collection (via sensors or other data collection mechanisms) culminating in high quality reporting and visualizations solutions, such as digital twinning or high-fidelity simulations. 

The VSL is supports a wide variety of projects with industry, including software systems, data analytics, machine learning and AI-related solutions design, prototyping and testing, sensor and electronics design/integration and high impact visualization solutions.  

Through contributions by both Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Research Fund, we have the following equipment located within the VSL.
