FCT Students awarded at the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge 2013

André Mourão, student of the Integrated Master Degree in Computer Engineering, won 2nd prize with the Nova-Emotions game for two participants. This game contains a device that recognizes, detects and evaluates facial expressions. Inês Prata Machado, finalist of the Integrated Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering, won 3rd prize with the development of an algorithm that allows classifying characteristics related to certain movements. This algorithm plays an essential role in the Motion Plux device which monitors activity of human being during the day and that has the ability to identify changes in behaviour that give rise to neurological disorders. This device will be tested in the Fundação Champalimaud.
