How and Why to Succeed at CYBATHLON

Winning a CYBATHLON competition means several things: Your technology is great, your pilot is awesome, the team’s huge effort paid off, a lot of fun, shared emotions, and a next step towards a world without barriers. In this lecture, Prof. Bermes gives insights into how their university and their team approached the CYBATHLON competition.

Motors and Energy Supply - Selecting the Optimal Drive for Controllability and Efficiency

In this CYBATHLON lecture, Max Erick Busse-Grawitz and Tobias Wellerdieck focus on how the initial set of drive system requirements derived is used to restrict the search range for the optimal drive system. They show and explain two types of restrictions: exclusions and limits. Furthermore, they provide an example in the scope of CYBATHLON indicating how a trade-off analysis of system characteristics and drive system performance could be done.

Bridging the Gap Between Human-Centered Design and Technological Implementation

In this lecture, Dr. Jan Thomas Meyer focuses on the core principles and practices of user-centered design, highlighting its paramount importance in shaping assistive technologies that genuinely cater to the needs and aspirations of their users. Max Erick Busse-Grawitz focuses on how technology, when coupled with a user-centric approach, can truly transform the landscape of assistive innovations.

Overengineering in Human-Machine Interaction

In this lecture, Prof. Dr. Heike Vallery focuses on her groundbreaking work in the field of human-machine interaction, and ineffective, unsatisfying, long-lasting development processes. Furthermore, she shares her expertise and insights into the delicate balance between engineering and effective human-machine interaction.

Machine Scene Understanding – Limitations and Opportunities

In this lecture, Dr. Cesar Cadena, Senior Scientist at ETH Zurich, provides invaluable insights into the nuanced challenges that arise in the pursuit of enabling machines to solve our ever-changing environment. He delves into machine limitations while uncovering opportunities as we bridge human cognition and artificial intelligence.
