Registration for the Cybathlon 2016 is now open
NCCR Robotics together with ETH Zurich aims to further discussions between academics, industry and end users of wearable robotics by presenting the Cybathlon. This unique event will take place in Zurich, Switzerland on 8th October 2016 – we are currently asking pilots and technical teams to register for the competition so that they have time to work together to develop novel technologies.
The Cybathlon event is split into six races with pilots using: Powered leg prostheses, powered arm prostheses, powered exoskeletons, brain computer interface, neuroprosthetics and powered wheelchairs. Technology providers may sign up for more than one race.
Please see cybathlon.ethz.ch<http://cybathlon.ethz.ch> to see the official rules, racecourses and sign up details or to register for our newsletter. Follow us on Twitter<https://twitter.com/cybathlon> and Facebook <https://www.facebook.com/cybathlon?fref=ts> to keep informed about the event.
The Swiss National Center of Competence in Robotics<http://www.nccr-robotics.ch/> (NCCR) is a federally funded programme bringing together robotics laboratories from EPFL, ETH Zurich, University of Zurich and University of Lugano to work on wearable, rescue and educational robots.
