The key factor for the success of virtual reality is immersion, which is the condition where the user loses awareness of being in an environment which is not real. Immersion is achieved by replicating human senses. In this context, introducing eye-tracking into VR can increase the immersion and open up a wide variety of applications. Among eye...

3D Digital Human Models (DHMs) provide industrial designers 3D and 4D information on the dimensions of the human body and its range of motion. Current models are based on outdated data from research on military populations making them unrepresentative for civilian populations. Available DHMs require experience to properly use them, are vague on...

Real-time realistic rendering requires the evaluation of the influence of many light sources. In case of dynamic geometry or light sources, this evaluation must be performed every frame. In this thesis I present enclosed clustering: an adaptation of Clustered Light Shading to stereoscopic rendering which cuts the per-eye cost of light assignment...

Over recent decades, the quality of death and dying has received much attention in society. Many patients with terminal cancers or admitted to intensive care/acute units are in need of care for the end of their life (Susan, 2015). With this need rising up, palliative care service is gradually developed mainly as the setting of hospice or home...

Lelycentre – an area that was initially planned as a living, working and shopping district, which also would form the city centre of Lelystad – was meant for the first inhabitants who came to Lelystad in September 1967. Using clear zoning plans as a base, much was promised to the new inhabitants. These promises consisted of low rise houses for...

The global aircraft fleet was predicted to grow by approximately 40% between 2017 and 2027 by Oliver Wyman (2017). This fast-growing fleet needs to be supported by equally developing Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) divisions of airlines. In light of the growing need for more efficient and technologically advanced aircraft maintenance,...

The Rubber Hand Illusion is an illusion in which<br/>visual cues of stimulation on a fake hand are combined with<br/>synchronous tactile cues on a participant’s hand, which can<br/>induce a sense of bodily ownership of the fake hand. This<br/>technique does not facilitate synchronous movement of the<br/>hands, and asynchronous stimulation or...

An issue in driving simulation is that behaviour displayed in simulation does not exactly replicate behaviour in real-life. For example, roadside vegetation density impacts a driver’s speed and lateral position in on-road studies, but not in driving simulator studies. In this study it is investigated if the increase in fidelity and presence that...

In recent years Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) applications have seen a drastic increase in commercial popularity. Different representations have been used to create 3D reconstructions for AR and VR. Point clouds are one such representation that are characterized by their simplicity and versatility making them suitable for real...

Joint limits and singularities limit the total and intuitive utilization of the robotic workspace in VR mediated teleoperation. This paper presents the development and validation of a novel null-space projection control method, used to adjust joint configurations of teleoperated robot arms containing joint limits and singularities. The novel...

In the Intensive Care Units (ICU) patients are exposed to many, continuous and highly stressors, such as medical alarms, which contribute to the development of psychological issues, such as delirium, anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). These psychological issues have a negative influence on the patients’ healing process...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are being developed by several companies and research groups worldwide. The implicit communication (e.g., eye contact) of the vehicle or driver seems to play an important role in the expected behaviour of vehicles. It is possible that vulnerable road users (VRUs) are less able to estimate the intention of vehicles (e.g.,...
