Welcome to the MaD Lab!

The researchers in the Machine Learning and Data Analytics (MaD) lab conduct theoretical and applied research for wearable computing systems and machine learning algorithms for engineering applications at the intersection of sports and health care. Our motivation is generating a positive impact on human wellbeing, be it through increasing performance, maintaining health, improving rehabilitation, or monitoring disease.

Home of the Innovation Lab

The MaD Lab is the home of the Innovation Lab for Wearable and Ubiquitous Computing, where students develop innovative prototypes with industry partners.


Matthias and Philipp had the pleasure to get invited to the VDI Event „Machine Learning@Operations“ to promote two of our projects for industry partners. First of all our joint course ML4Industry (in cooperation with REP and FAPS) offers users in production and quality engineering the possibility to...

Next round started! We were really impressed how many students appeared and are looking forward to the new semester :). Great “Thank you” already to our partners for their project pitches and their support.  

We were happy that the Bavarian Minister for Digitalization Judith Gerlach visited FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg and its surrounding #Digital#Health #Ecosystem with the German #DigitalHealthHub on March 27th. Zollhof - Tech Incubator FAU Germany Medical Valley EMN

On February 26, Markus and Philipp were invited to join the meetup of all Bavarian Innovation Labs in Augsburg. This event was hosted by the University of Augsburg and the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg under the umbrella of Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern (ZD.B). Every semester, these meeti...
