Join the NINAPRO sEMG classification competition!

Dear colleagues,

the Ninapro project (Non Invasive Adaptive Prosthetics) team invites you to join the workshop that we will be held on the 25th of October at ICAR 2013 (International Conference on Advanced Robotics) in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Ninapro is an ongoing work that aims to aid research on advanced hand myoelectric prosthetics with public databases. In this workshop we will present and explain how to use the database and we will describe the state of the art in sEMG controlled robotics.

Moreover, we invite the participants to join the associated Robotic Hand Control Challenge at ICAR 2013. Participants must unleash their classification procedures on the sEMG control of an ideal robotic hand in 40 different movements. The task includes datasets from 40 intact subjects, and will help the participants to work on the Ninapro database with 20 amputated subjects that will be released soon. The winner will be rewarded with 200$ and will be asked to present his results during the workshop.

Below is the list of confirmed speakers:

Manfredo Atzori (HES-SO, Sierre, Switzerland)
Arjan Gijsberts (Idiap Research Institute, Martigny, Switzerland)
Claudio Castellini (German Aerospace Research Center – DLR, Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany)
Invited talk: Marco Gazzoni and Roberto Merletti (Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy)
Invited talk: Dario Farina (Georg-August University, Göttingen, Germany)

See you in Montevideo!
