Celebration of TAME Project Victory
17th April, 2017
As the top university of Pakistan NUST has major contribution to the research and innovation at national and international level. The team from NUST-SEECS participated and won the Stanford Center on Longevity Design Challenge in California on March 30, 2017.
This success was achieved by defeating world top nine universities like MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Cornell, Virginia Tech, University of Waterloo, University of Sao Paolo, Beijing University and Stanford University itself. This year the competition was focused on such design projects and products which are modeled to optimize life of human beings. ‘TAME’ (Tremor Acquisition and Minimization), the title of the project that got selected for the competition, was developed by Four Bachelors of Electrical Engineering students, Awais Shafique, Hooriya Anam, Arsalan Javed and Sheraz Kamran. ‘TAME’ is a wearable device for real-time pathological wrist tremor suppression that enables tremor patients performs routine tasks without any assistance. Instead of a conventional glove. TAME is small and light weight device to be discreetly worn under a shirt. The device’s sensors and electrodes correspond to positions recommended by neurologists and physiotherapists. Earlier a Large number of students and faculty members welcome them by waving as all four students were standing on a float, which moves out from building of SEECS (School of Electrical Engineering and Comp0uter Science) and takes a round of university. On the occasion Lieutenant General (Retired) Naweed Zaman, HI (M) Rector NUST was the chief guest. Rector Presented NUST shields to the winning team. In his speech Rector NUST said it’s a great achievement for NUST to win an international completion at one of World’s Top universities in USA. This achievement veritably summarizes the mission of NUST. This is what we are all about – training bright and talented young people to expand and lead from the frontiers of Science and technology for comprehensive national development. I congratulate these students, faculty members and wish them and their ‘TAME’ very best of luck.
SEECS NUST encourages its students and provides opportunities for international outreach with state of the art lab facilities, to compete at national and international level.
