As part of the Ontario-China Research and Innovation Fund (OCRIF) program, A.U.G. Signals Ltd. (AUG) has partnered with the University of Toronto and Peking University in Beijing to develop a new network of air monitoring sensor systems. The team from AUG and Prof. Maosheng Yao from Peking University recently attended the OCRIF forum on May 16th. It was an informative and enlightening day full of guest speakers, industry panels and meetings with a variety of Chinese technology investors, Canadian innovators and other research groups, With support from the Ontario and Chinese governments, AUG’s project is off to a strong start.
The AUG team Professor Maosheng Yao also visited their collaborators at the University of Toronto. Prof. Greg Evans and his research team form an integral part of this collaborative project to develop an innovative air sensor network to monitor pollution in cities around the world. These visits strengthen the bonds between both countries and improve our capability to work across borders. AUG is excited to be a part of the OCRIF program and believes its partnerships on this project will not only lead to improved technologies, but better, safer, cleaner communities in Ontario and China too.
