SEW-EURODRIVE is a world leader in drive technology and a pioneer in drive-based automation. As a key partner in the Barrett CTI, Humber has partnered with SEW-EURODRIVE to create the Humber Hawk Automated Guided Vehicle (Hawk for short). The Hawk is a system built by third-year Electro-Mechanical Technology students under the leadership of the Barrett CTI Director. The Hawk AGV project has also received industry contributions from Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, and SICK Ltd. The Hawk is a proof of concept enabling students to work with SEW-EURODRIVE to design and implement new applications for future AGV projects.
Four Humber students worked together on "Olive", a capstone project for the Web Design and Interactive Media program. Olive was designed to redefine the current sit-down dining experience by improving the speed, efficiency, and overall experience in restaurants that want to stand out from their competition. Customers who use this app, will be able to optimize their seat-in experience by reserving a table, ordering food, and paying for the meal before they even arrive. This project was awarded the Cisco Scholarship for Innovation Award.
The Barrett CTI features three hotel rooms which provide convenient accommodations for visiting experts. The three-suite hotel also functions as a learning lab for Hospitality, Recreation & Tourism students to participate in its operations.
Students from three disciplines worked collaboratively to develop a go-to market plan for the hotel suites. The multi-phased applied research project involved students from the Project Management postgraduate program, Hospitality, Recreation & Tourism diploma program, and the Interior Design diploma program.
|Phase One||utilization plan to identify the services required for successful operations|
|Phase Two||implementation plan to refine the operational plan, as well as the development of interior design concepts for the suites|
|Phase Three||(in development) procurement process to acquire furniture and amenities|
Windsor-Essex Compassion Care Community (WECCC) has mobilized more than 100 community partner organizations to improve the quality of life of vulnerable clients and caregivers living in Windsor, Ontario and the surrounding municipalities. WECCC and Humber are collaborating to develop a user experience design and minimum viable product for their technology platform which will accelerate their ability to scale up and help more patients in palliative care manage their care from home.
