CYBATHLON Challenges 2023

We are excited to announce that the second CYBATHLON Challenges will take place from 29 - 30 March 2023! Teams are invited to compete and showcase their current technology and the pilot’s skills in two selected tasks of their discipline of the CYBATHLON 2024 Races & Rules. 

CYBATHLON Challenges 2023

Featured Discipline: Exoskeleton Race

Compared with 2020, the competition tasks for the CYBATHLON 2024 will include greater variability and uncertainty about the exact structure or exact arrangement of the various objects. Amongst the things that will be tested will be overall body balance, such as walking with the exoskeleton without crutches. Pilot completes tasks such as walking on different terrains, move objects, ascend and descend stairs, and find their way in a crowded or congested environment.
