From November 7th to 13th, the final of the 16th “Challenge Cup" College Students Extracurricular Academic Technical Work Competition was held in Beijing. The competition was jointly organized by the Central Committee of the Communist Young League, China Association for Science and Technology, Ministry of Education, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, National Students’ Federation and Beijing Municipal Government. Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics undertook the competition. The team made up by 5 students of MSE and 2 students from other school of HUST won the First Prize.
Under the guidance of MSE teachers Prof. Huang Yong'an and Associate Prof. Zhang Li, the team finished the work "Distributed Myoelectricity Collection Flexible Electronic Skin". By this work, people will be able to develop a large scale ultra-thin flexible electronic skin that can be attached on our epidermis, so as to collect distributed signals of myoelectricities. This technology has been used in fields like prosthesis control, gesture recognition and health monitoring.
The team's participation in the competition got the support and help from MSE leaders and teachers. What's more, they were also subsidized by the Qihang Foundation of MSE postgraduate alumni of the year 1990.
