Research Area(s): Internet of Things, User Experience Design | Funder: NSERC | Program: Engage
PI Name: Timothy Wong | Faculty/Department: Faculty of Applied Sciences & Technology

Mero is a technology innovator in the IoT space serving the commercial properties service management and delivery vertical. Its primary business is to provide analytics to commercial properties by utilizing small, flexible wireless IoT sensors. The current challenge Mero is facing is the pairing time of IoT devices to backend data collection and analytics. Mero needs to research and develop a fast-pairing mechanism for Mero sensors which can bring their sensors from shipment to online. The grant will enable Mero to research further into advanced techniques for sensor pairing in the IoT space. Mero sees Humber as a technology partner that can help build on the current innovation Mero has already made and make it better. The grant will add fresh talent to tackle the challenge.
