- Feasibility Analysis:Our experienced researchers can evaluate the feasibility of your technological ideas and provide solutions to bring those ideas to life.
- Product Development:CAMIIT researchers can develop new products and improve existing products related to Internet of Things and Mechatronics applications.
- Prototyping:Bring your own ideas from mind to hands using CAMIIT’s state-of-the-art equipment for prototyping mechanical and electronic systems.
- Testing and Validation:We can test and validate products and technologies according to industry standard procedures.
A ONE-STOP RESEARCH CENTRE
Our facility is designed to meet the needs of both academic and industrial research and development projects. CAMIIT is equipped with an array of tools and equipment for prototyping, electronics development, measurements, tests, and validations. This includes:
- Metal and composite 3D printers
- Electronics fabrication
- Measuring and analyzing
- Micro and nanotechnology development
- Communications and network development
- Robotics and industrial controllers
As part of Fleming College, CAMIIT supports student learning with high-quality training through hands-on experience, and applied research and innovation activities on campus.
CAMIIT is composed of a core group of scientists, faculty researchers, engineers, and technologists as well as a community of associates from academic, industrial, and private sectors. This talented research team is committed to excellence, quality service, and helping our partners turn their innovative ideas into a market advantage for a smarter and sustainable world.
- How do I begin?
Contact us to get started. We’ll set up a consultation meeting and create your custom project plan.
- Are projects restricted to the CAMIIT site?
No. Our research team can carry out testing, demonstrations, monitoring, and other projects off-site. We work with partners from across Ontario and Canada – contact us and we can make your project work.
- How much will my project cost?
Fees vary depending on project type and length. Contact us for more information.
- What funding is available?
We have several programs in place to help reduce project costs. Funding options can be explored during the initial consultation. Contact us to learn more about our funders as well as funding opportunities.
- What happens with the intellectual property (IP) once my project is complete?
For most projects, the industry partner remains the sole owner of IP. Intellectual property allocation is discussed during the initial consultation and agreed upon before the project begins.
- Who will be working on my project?
The Centre has a core staff of scientists and technicians. Our project managers and scientists will lead the project from start to finish. Occasionally students will assist with our research team. (Student participation may be required for certain types of funding.) All researchers sign non-disclosure agreements.
