In January, Prof. Christian Bermes had the opportunity to give invited talks at the University of Luxemburg and at the Bitburg Chapter of Rotary International. He presented a short history of HSR enhanced and focussed on the latest technical developments by the team for CYBATHLON 2-3 May 2020.
Prof. Bernhard Peters, Head of the XDEM Research Centre at Uni Luxemburg had organized and chaired both events. Thank you very much for the opportunity to reach out, and thank you very much to your Doctoral Students as well as your Rotarian Friends for stimulating questions, fruitful discussions and energizing feedbacks!
Our bachelor student in mechanical engineering Fabian Nick has presented his project on building a digital twin of ZEDe.
The model is used to simulate electric components to find the best setup and test new components before deployment into the real machine.
Thank you to CADFEM for all the support and we wish Fabian all the best for his upcoming Thesis!
From 29.-30.11.2019 visitors at Swiss Handicap had the chance to see the exoskeleton VariLeg enhanced and the wheelchair ZED evolution by HSR enhanced. Both teams were at the booth of CYBATHLON and presented their race-exo and –wheelchair built for the CYBATHLON 2020 in Zürich.
Besides a static display of both prototypes, there were three demo-runs per day with the wheelchair tackling two CYBATHLON obstacles. The wheelchair was piloted by Florian Hauser, gold medalist at CYBATHLON 2016 in Zürich and at CYBATHLON Wheelchair Series 2019 in Kawasaki.
VariLeg enhanced was in the Tele1 news with an interview by exo-pilot Thomas Krieg and CYBATHLON-initiator Robert Riener (in German): http://www.tele1.ch/sendungen/1/Nachrichten#520760_6
