CS student sets sights on visionary tech

Monday, May 27, 2024

Co-op students at the University of Waterloo are helping AdHawk Microsystems to develop technology that can advance eye health and behavioral research. 

Recently, the startup unveiled MindLink Air™ ─ glasses that use research-grade, camera-free eye-tracking technology to read its wearer’s eye health and cognitive state. This data provides insights that help the wearer adjust their daily routine to improve productivity and avoid mental fatigue.

Their team includes Nicholas Sweerts, a fourth-year student at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, who contributed to MindLink Air™'s user interface.

I didn’t know how much work I’d actually be doing and that I’d be working on a blank slate, building a project from the ground up. It’s a great experience to do this. I’m able to ask questions as needed and know one of the developers will get back to me right away. I feel like my work will have a major part in their success and that makes me feel good.
