Tyler - My name is Tyler Sun; I'm a grade 10 student at Fredericton High School with a keen interest in science, music, poetry. I spend most of my time either volunteering or working on school work. Other than extracurriculars, I have a passion for photography and have even won national awards for my photos. I have also won a couple of provincial medals for marksmanship and chess, and I'm also a big tech enthusiast. 1. Two summers ago as a volunteer camp counsellor down at worlds unbound, a science summer camp hosted here at UNB, I was fortunate enough to see a presentation by professor Kevin Englehart who is the director of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering. His work which revolves around prosthetics sparked my interest and later became the inspiration for this project. 2. Enlarge my training datasets as to improve the performance of COMET. Gain access to a supercomputer to further optimize COMET's maximum performance. 3. Pick a topic you enjoy and read lots of papers. Remain open-minded and stay curious.
Peter - Peter Zhu is a grade 10 student at Harrison Trimble High School in Moncton, New Brunswick. After creating his previous STEM project, a software that eases office ergonomic injuries through studying the user’s motion patterns, Peter has been heavily exposed to biomedical engineering and myoelectric studies. As an avid programmer and innovator, Peter generated the ingenious idea of using deep learning to optimize training in EMG-control systems and worked alongside Tyler to make COMET a reality. Asides from being an aspiring scientist and innovator, Peter has won mathematics awards in contests hosted by Brock University, the University of Waterloo and the University of New Brunswick, having placed 6th in Canada with his most recent contest score. In his spare time, Peter enjoys public speaking and won numerous awards with his English and French speeches. Peter is the member of his high school’s badminton and cross-country teams, and the drummer for the school concert band. He also likes to read books, compose music and pursue entrepreneurial ideas. His advice for aspiring science fair students is to play to their strengths, pick a field they are interested in and passionate about, and plan out everything in advance.

COMET: A Novel Training Method to Optimize Robustness in Myoelectric Control
Région:River Valley
Ville:Fredericton, NB, Moncton, NB
École:Fredericton High School, Harrison Trimble High School
Sommaire:EMG control is an advanced myoelectric signal-processing technique that is the state-of-the-art technology to augment humans with machines. It is the process of recording muscle signals, classifying, and using them to control human-assisted robots or rehabilitation devices such as a prosthetic. We created a novel method to generate user-specific training profiles that reduces classification error rate by 33% on average across ten subjects.
