Student-built Delft exoskeleton wins international Cybathlon

The new MARCH III by TU Delft student team Project MARCH has won the Cybathlon Experience in Düsseldorf, the international obstacle race for exoskeletons. Entrants from several countries competed in the test of robotic harnesses for people with paraplegia, ending on 29 September. Together with ‘pilot’ Sjaan Quirijns, who has had paraplegia since 2000, MARCH III achieved the fastest time and the highest number of points. Thanks to improvements to the suit and intensive training of its wearer, the team successfully completed a four-obstacle course in just under 9.5 minutes. Project MARCH gained particular plaudits for the independent functioning of its device.

Launch of TU Delft Student Rocket Fails

Launch of TU Delft Student Rocket Fails

On Thursday 26 July at 03:30 AM, students from the Delft University of Technology, made an attempt with a home-built rocket (Stratos III) to beat the European altitude record and reach the threshold of space. Twenty seconds after the launch the rocket disintegrated above the safety zone at sea. The team and INTA (Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial) are currently investigating the anomaly and the cause of the failed attempt.
