The final Races and Rules 2024 are published!

After the first version and an intensive exchange with the teams, the final version of the rulebook has now been published.

Featured Discipline: Assistance Robot Race

First time ever in a CYBATHLON competition the Assistance Robot Race. The race incorporates elements of human-robot interaction, environment recognition and object manipulation. Assistive robots offer tremendous potential to help people who have very little or no control over their arms and legs become more independent. In this discipline, pilots must work together with the robot to pick up various objects within a set amount of time or overcome various obstacles.
