Bicycles have been studied extensively over the past 200 years, with mathematical models providing valuable insights into various aspects of bicycle dynamics and rider control. However, the lack of a common framework for creating and sharing bicycle-rider models hinders the development of advanced models, research reproducibility, and...

Commercially available Lane Keeping Assist systems fail to consider the driver's intentions since they mainly focus on minimising path tracking errors, resulting in conflicts between humans and automation. This often leads to users being unsatisfactory and turning off the assist, as a result diminishing the advantages such as reduced workload...

Naturalistic driving research with a focus on trucks has been gaining momentum in the past decade. With the advancement in sensor technology and access to big data, it becomes possible to understand driver behaviour at a more fundamental level. This can assist in mitigating the impact trucks have on the environment while enhancing safety....

This thesis presents a new MPC controller which integrates path tracking and stability control into one controller. Previously these tasks were done by separate controllers, where one controller handled the path tracking while another controller ensured the vehicle was kept in the stable operating region. A drawback of this method is that the...

This thesis describes the concept of a reconfigurable wheelbase for a car as a way to improve agility at higher velocities. Altering the longitudinal position of each wheel with respect to the centre of gravity, leads to a change in lateral wheel forces. This affects the car's yaw rate, therefore making it possible to influence its agility....

Up to now, not much is known about how humans control bicycles, especially when subject to large perturbations. In order to learn more about the extent to which these perturbations can be handled, a new experimental setup is required, which can deliver large perturbations to cyclists and bring them to fall. This thesis describes the detailed...

There is an increasing need for transfemoral prostheses that provide gait support, stability, safety and comfort. Although there are many prostheses available in different levels of complexity and price, there is still room for improvement. It has been proved that the cost of transport (CoT) for walking is significantly increased for...

Although the capabilities of automated driving systems (ADS) are growing, the human operator remains in charge of driving the vehicle outside the operational design domain and after requests to intervene. The vehicle sensors required for ADS and new regulation for driver availability monitoring systems stimulate the development of systems that...

Higher levels of automation in driving may allow drivers to engage in other activities, but may also increase the likelihood of Motion Sickness (MS). The exact causes of MS are not well understood, and various susceptibility factors(e.g. age, gender, ethnicity) can cause large individual differences. To better understand and predict MS, it is...

Current commercial Driver Steering Assistance Systems (DSAS) focus on path-tracking performance without taking into account driver intentions. Improved driver-automation interaction can be achieved by sharing vehicle lateral control through torques. Furthermore, integrating a driver steering-torque model allows to better match driver intentions....

Bicycle simulator research has been the subject of considerable research, however, few of these attempts have integrated direct balance control and enough freedom of motion to deliver a real-world kinematic cycling experience. In this study, the B.I.K.E. (Bicycle Intrinsic Kinematics Emulator) system, a kinematic bicycle simulator, is developed...

The presence of a passenger can affect driver safety positively or negatively. Therefore gaining a better understanding of the nature of this interaction with a passenger is crucial. Additionally, drivers and passengers acquire nearly identical visual information from the driving scene. As a result, synchronised behaviour may occur. The driver...

Previous research showed that perceived risk is an important psychological determinant of road user behaviour and accident prevalence. However, little knowledge exists about how objective in-scene features affect a driver’s perceived risk in interactions with pedestrians. This crowdsourcing study tries to fill this research gap. A total of 1082...

The level of automation in vehicles is growing. But until all vehicles are completely automated, there will be a transition period where automated vehicles and human drivers coexist. Because these road users will coexist, it is necessary that automated vehicles understand human drivers and vice versa. This study aims to create a model that...

CO2 emission of vehicles and its influence on climate change is a widely discussed topic already for many years. New CO2 emission norms for vehicles have been defined based on the 2021 baseline: 15% reduction resulting in 0.09 kg/km for 2025, and 37.5% reduction resulting in 0.069 kg/km for 2030. Both norms are defined under the Worldwide...

The concept of motion planning for a path following task is highly relevant. Having a comfortable reference motion is an advantage for automated vehicles, since this leads to more higher comfort for the passengers, in turn leading to higher adoption of ADAS. Defining a speed profile can be done in three different ways. First is a heuristics...

Bicycles connected to the internet present an opportunity for integrated accident detection and geolocation. Such a system can reduce the time it takes for help to arrive by automatically alerting predefined contacts with the location of the accident. I developed a systematic method for the practical implementation of bicycle accident detection...

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are becoming more available and will become mandatory for all new vehicle models from 2022 onward. In order to achieve the highest safety benefits, it is important that these systems are available. Lane Keep Assist (LKA) is part of ADAS and assists the driver in the lateral control of the vehicle. Lane...

Various neuromuscular disorders such as spinal cord injury, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and poliomyelitis lead to calf muscle weakness, which limits the patient's ability to propel their body forward during gait. Their abnormal gait pattern is characterized by increased ankle dorsiflexion, excessive knee flexion during stance and reduced ankle...

Interacting with cyclists is a difficult challenge for Automated Vehicles (AVs). It is important that the introduction of AVs does not lead to a decrease in cyclist safety. This study presents a new methodology that is developed to assess road safety between AVs and cyclists. Surrogate Measures of Safety are identified specifically for the...
