Waterloo’s $10M dream facility for smarter, greener cars

Out with the old tech, in with the new. In April, construction crews began stripping down an old laboratory tucked among the engineering buildings on the University of Waterloo campus. They are creating a research facility with three different labs, or cells, working toward a common objective: smarter, more energy-efficient automobiles, with reduced emissions.

Funding for the $10-million Green and Intelligent Automotive (GAIA) research facility started with an initial $1-million contribution from Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC), along with federal and provincial government support of $2.1 million each, from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Research Fund Research Infrastructure programs.
