“Cybathlon” features robotic exoskeleton, BCI competitions

ETH professor Robert Riener‘s first Cybathlon will feature competitions using robotic prostheses and brain computer interfaces.  Disabled participants will compete in brain controlled races and exoskeleton controlled tasks.  Many  will include common obstacles, like doors, ramps, and stairs, as the goal is to develop technology to increase independence and make the activities of daily living less difficult.
