Ctrl-Z Pinder Pet Finder a Major Hit With Investors

Thursday, April 6, 2017

Bayview Glen’s award-winning robotics team, Ctrl-Z, was invited to formally pitch their Pinder Pet Finder to the York Angel Investors on March 30th at the York Downs Golf & Country Club in Unionville. 



As part of the 2016/2017 FIRST LEGO League season,‎ Ctrl-Z designed a Bluetooth-enabled pet smart collar that helps reunite lost pets with their families. With the help of extensive research, consultation, surveys and hard work, the team developed a prototype that has been receiving a great deal of attention.  Pinder Pet Finder has been showcased at several events including the Ontario Innovation Celebration where Ctrl-Z took home the Problem Identification Award.


Designing, building and programming a robot is one aspect of participating in FLL each year. Teams are also challenged to identify a real-world problem related to a theme and propose an innovative solution. For this season, FIRST LEGO League‘s theme is ANIMAL ALLIES and the challenge is to improve our interactions with animals.
