The economic magazine of Eastern Switzerland, LEADER, has published an online article on HSR ENHANCED. They also presented us in their digital newsletter. We are very proud to be featured in such a recognized paper. You may find the online article here.
HSR ENHANCED in the heart of Rapperswil: You may find the letters ,ENHANCED' on the main square of Rapperswil-Jona. We are very proud of this presence in the local public space! Thanks to the City of Rapperswil-Jona for making it possible!
On Tuesday September 20th, the HSR ENHANCED team had the chance to receive the team SCEWO from ETH Zurich in Rapperswil. In the last weeks before the Cybathlon, SCEWO will train several times on the HSR training course. HSR ENHANCED is happy to share both the training and competition experience with SCEWO. Welcome to Rapperswil, SCEWO!
The local newspaper Zürichsee-Zeitung has attended one of our training sessions. The result is both a great article on HSR ENHANCED and a video where you can watch Florian practise . Statements by our project responsible Christian Bermes and by our pilot Florian complement the article.
This is the conclusion from the test run-through in Zurich where we tested our wheelchair in another surrounding and in the presence of other teams. “We are able to handle unexpected difficulties and find adequate solutions” says Florian, pilot of HSR Enhanced. “And I like the speed control mechanism of our wheelchair”. Thanks to the solid technique of our wheelchair and to Florian’s enthusiasm, we overcame most obstacles successfully and quite fast. We didn’t try the stairs as the module is not ready yet. And room for improvement was identified: The steering and door closing mechanism need to be fine-tuned.
