The Advanced Research and Innovation in Smart Environments (ARISE) building is a 71,000-square-foot space for partnership and entrepreneurship opportunities at Carleton University. The facility is a new home for applied research in clean technology, health technology and information and communication technology. ARISE brings together professors and students from our five faculties—Science, Engineering and Design, Sprott School of Business, Public Affairs and Arts and Social Sciences — to collaborate on research and training in areas such as 5G wireless, smart cities and data analytics. ARISE is intended to become a living laboratory that will allow students to obtain marketable skills and become entrepreneurs through early-stage commercialization development and facilitating interactions with partners of all sizes.
The 5G laboratory in the ARISE building will enhance the educational experience for students at Carleton by means of focusing student-centred project research and innovation programs. There will be an Ericsson Indoor 5G RDS network inside the building to develop, test and optimize state of the art 3D localization solutions, techniques and algorithms. The space will also support Ericsson executives in residence in ARISE.
