FAU Open Research Challenge

For the second time, Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is asking interested international researchers or research teams to participate in the Open Research Challenge. The focus of this year’s global online competition lies on personalized Medical Engineering in Gait Disorders – inviting advanced master students, doctoral candidates or postdoctoral researchers to embark on an exciting journey to discover intelligent solutions supporting medical experts with personalized and disease-specific visualizations of gait impairments, even though the doctor is not present. The challenge asks researchers to submit a walking-visualization-tool of gait sequences based on given inertial sensor-based gait recordings acquired using intelligent engineering technology  developed at FAU.

By joining the challenge and submitting your approach, you will be given the chance to help medical experts to get a visual impression of the gait impairments experienced by their patients. The winners of the challenge are invited to an all-expense-paid one-week trip to Germany to showcase their innovative solution and meet the professors behind the challenge in October 2017.
