ASTM International Exo Games 2024

Exo Games 2024

The Exo Games provide a unique platform for university teams of students from various institutions to connect with exo industry professionals. This competition is designed to foster lifelong relationships, offering participants hands-on experience with the latest exo standards.

Working collaboratively, student teams will embark on the challenge of designing, building, and testing a self-contained exoskeleton based on a provided project specification. Their design solutions will be rigorously evaluated against the predefined standards established by ASTM's exoskeletons and exosuits committee (F48). The competition not only promotes innovation but also mirrors the actions of First Responders, making it a truly impactful experience.
