Justin Phan, a senior double-majoring in computer and electrical engineering, won the 1st place award at the highly competitive California State University (CSU) Student Research Competition that just concluded on April 25, 2020.
Justin’s project, entitled “Developing the Next-Generation Neural-Machine Interfaces for Neurorehabilitation Applications by Utilizing Sensor Arrays and Spatial Features”, investigated the effectiveness of a set of novel computationally efficient spatial features in electromyographic (EMG) sensory array-based pattern recognition (PR) for neurorehabilitation applications. A system prototype consisting of an Android app and a 3D-printed prosthetic hand was also developed to demonstrate the feasibility of a mobile, flexible, and real-time neural-machine interface for prosthesis control. Justin has been conducting this research in the ICE Lab since his sophomore year at SF State.
