The International Genetic Engineered Machine (iGEM) Competition is an annual, worldwide synthetic biology event. In this competition, teams of students push the boundaries of synthetic biology by tackling everyday issues facing the world. Teams work together to design, build, test and measure a system of their own design.
SensUs is the annual international student competition on sensors for health. By involving students, industry, patients, and healthcare professionals, we strive to accelerate the development and innovation of biosensors and to stimulate education in this field. SensUs aims to raise awareness about the possibilities that biosensing can offer to the life of patients and to health care in general.
Every year there is a brand new TU Eindhoven Sensing Team that represents our university at the SensUs competition. For the next team, we require Bachelor and Master students to form a multidisciplinary team. Students with knowledge in the field of (bio)chemistry are necessary for the assay development and chemical optimization. We also require people with a background in physics to assist with the physical principles of biosensing. Electrical engineering and programming subjects are important too, like signal processing and the translating of the binding of a molecule to a usable, measurable signal. Throughout the process, you have to keep the end-user in mind: the patient. This requires design choices for user-friendliness, portability, and cost. Lastly, you have to stay in touch with the outside world, requiring public relations work and drawing in sponsors.
At Fruit Punch AI for Health, we “Connect and educate the community of AI engineers and apply AI for Good!”.
We help people out by applying technology in the healthcare sector. Applying machine learning algorithms and software in healthcare helps enhance clinical productivity, efficiency and accuracy. We assist in the resolution of numerous non-profit AI for Health challenges in order to broaden the world's possibilities.
Besides the robot soccer competitions, Tech United also participates in the @Home competitions with the service robots HERO, AMIGO and SERGIO. Within this competition the care robots must execute several tasks, like taking something out of the kitchen and recognize people. Robots like HERO enable elderly people to function independently for a longer period of time.
Equipped with advanced sensors, state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence, and knowledge of the human brain and body, we strive to create a platform that would allow anybody to translate parts of reality to consistent patterns comprehendible by the human brain. This will enable us to open the full realm of human experience and pose the question "how would you like to experience the world"?

The Recover@Home student team is working on a solution that enables better rehabilitation at home for patients after being discharged from hospital. With the solution(s) of Recover@Home there are much less required physical check-ups, with less pressure on hospitals, with lower risk on contamination. These reduced check-ups result in less travel between home and hospital. And last but not least with these solution(s) patients (and their relatives) can feel more comfortable when being able to recover at home.
