    HSR Enhanced at World Robot Summit 2018 in Tokyo

    From 17th-21st October 2018, during CYBATHLON Experience at the World Robot Summit, HSR Enhanced will roll out the new stair climbing module for CYBATHLON 2020. It has been developed in a recent thesis work by our B.Sc. student Kevin Bürgi, and refined by the team’s engineers from ILT. At WRS, we will be part of the CYBATHLON exhibition booth and perform two live demos per day climbing the six steps of the CYBATHLON 2020 obstacle ‘Stairs’ up and down. We are seizing this opportunity to be present at a leading robotics trade fair in Japan, and to participate in two workshops on inclusion and assistance technology. 

    Moreover, this is a great opportunity to present our sponsors on an international stage in Japan, the homeland of robotics. Hence, I am actively asking for your involvement to make this initially unbudgeted mission of HSR Enhanced happen! FAULHABER has already upgraded to GOLD Sponsoring, and ANTRIMON Group has upgraded to SILVER Sponsoring.

    #DIFE18 - Live Demo

    HSR Enhanced will be present with a live demo of our wheelchair ‘ZED Evolution’. Participants include Team SCEWO, Swiss politician Pascale Bruderer, Swisscom CEO Urs Schaeppi and many leaders from science, economy and society. WHEN? Sept. 13th 2018, 14:00-17:00 WHERE? Schiffbau Zurich.

    Quote from the organizer’s home page: ‘Session on Innovation for more self-determination and inclusion: How can we succeed in using technology for people who are physically or mentally impaired? How can digitization assist them to gain more autonomy in their daily lives? Is inclusion through technology a contradiction or a real chance? This session provides interesting insights into the obstacles handicapped people face in their everyday lives and shows how innovative and technological solutions can reduce the negative effect of these obstacles. In short presentations and impressive demos, you will learn more about the diverse possibilities to help achieve more autonomy and inclusion. Experts will discuss the economic and societal value of what can be done and use the opportunity to show potentials and areas of action.’ Read more about the program.

    Successful Cybathlon Experience 2018

    On  June 23rd, HSR Enhanced participated in the CYBATHLON Experience 2018 as part of the Rollivision fair at Swiss Paraplegic Centre Nottwil. In four demo runs, our pilot Florian Hauser had the chance to test two brand new obstacles from the CYBATHLON 2020 race rules: ‘Cobblestones’ and ‘Ramp&Door’. For Florian, it was only his second training with his new race wheelchair “ZED Evolution”. We are very proud that he solved all the obstacles presented to him flawlessly, and that he continuously improved the performance in every single run! Read more...
