The CYBATHLON Competition

In the CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition, teams from all over the world compete in one of the six disciplines. A team consists of a technology developer and a person with disabilities (pilot). The tasks in the respective disciplines are designed to reflect everyday activities that can be challenging for people with disabilities. While solving the respective tasks in competition, it is shown how well the developed technology is suited to support the pilot in everyday life.

Referee checks if everything is in accordance with the rules.
