Dr. Wenlong Zhang, an Assistant Professor in the Polytechnic School, has multiple volunteer undergraduate student research positions open for the project of Design of Wireless Human Gait Monitoring Systems. This position is available at the Polytechnic campus.
The goal of this project is to develop various wireless sensing devices (such as intelligent shoe insole, inertial sensors, EMG sensors) for monitoring human gait behaviors. The system has great potential in gait rehabilitation, physical therapy, and sports analysis. This project involves both hands-on part (mechatronics design and fabrication) and analytical part (signal processing and data analysis).
Students would be eligible to apply as a FURI student. This project would be suitable for an honors research/thesis. Students would work 15-20 hours per week and the project could potentially be extended for multiple semesters.
Students with interests/experience in sensors, microcontrollers, wireless network, computer programming, and biomechanics are encouraged to apply. Students who are interested should send an email to Dr. Zhang at firstname.lastname@example.org with their CV and unofficial transcripts.
