NVIDIA GPU grant approved for MEGANE PRO project

The NVIDIA GPU grant program awarded a Titan Xp to the MEGANE PRO project.

Hand amputations are highly impairing and can dramatically affect the capabilities people. Man-machine interfaces that can control hand prostheses have been developed, but natural control methods are still only rarely applied in real life. The requested GPU will allow us to develop this research field that has high scientific and social impact. The project includes the development of highly specific data classification and fusion algorithms based on convolutional and recurrent neural networks. The algorithms will allow to control a 3D printed prosthetic hand and/or a robotic hand simulator based on virtual reality in real time.
