Navigating touchscreens in vehicles becomes increasingly challenging when subjected to external perturbations like air turbulence or bumpy roads. These perturbations can lead to a loss in task performance, reduced finger accuracy, and increased frustration among users. To address these issues, electrovibration has emerged as a promising...

The provision of somatosensory information may play a fundamental role in the recovery of stroke patients. Particularly, tactile information is known to influence motor control by contributing to the perception of the weight, friction, and slip condition of objects. Despite this, the inclusion of tactile information through haptic rendering in...

This research presents a measurement method for a compliant gripper finger, whereby the location of the contact with an object and the exerted grasp force are measured indirectly, instead of directly on the contacting surface. For this purpose, the deformation is measured using strain gauges at two locations on the inside structure of the finger...

Endoscopic instruments are integral components of minimally invasive procedures, widely used for diagnoses and treatment of diseases. When navigating the endoscope, it should experience a minimum of friction, while an increase in friction is beneficial for performing the medical procedure. Friction can be reduced by squeeze film levitation,...

Hand-worn haptic systems must be able to produce high-quality haptics while also being lightweight and energy-efficient. In order to meet market expectations, research is being done into novel drivetrains that may be implemented in hand worn devices. This is being pushed forward by the growing demand in the virtual reality sector, which is...

Vibration energy harvesters have been proposed as a solution to increase the lifetime of wireless and portable medical devices. One example of implantable medical devices for which energy harvesters could be interesting, are pacemakers. With a lifespan of about 6 to 12 years, the battery must be replaced after this period of time. Using an...

Tendon-driven soft exosuits have gained much attention in recent years due to their ability to support people with mobility problems during daily life activities. A task that is particularly assisted by such robotic systems, due to its challenging nature, is stair climbing. However, assisting foot clearance during the swing phase of stair...

With robotics rapidly expanding towards new user-oriented applications, such as agriculture, households, and classrooms, new tasks and new requirements arise. One of the ongoing and unsolved problems that comes with the unpredictable new environments robots find themselves in, is soft object manipulation. Without assuming the handled object to...

Conventional steering systems in passenger vehicles have a mechanically fixed steering ratio. The steering sensitivity, defined as the amount of vehicle response to the driver's steering wheel input, remains fixed with changing road environments. Research has shown that driving comfort and safety can be improved when the vehicle's steering...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is themost frequent form of motor neuron diseases (MND). This neurodegenerativedisease progresses relentlessly quick. The characteristic feature of ALS is theconcurrent degeneration of the upper and lower motoneurons (UMN & LMN) inthe central and peripheral nervous system. Symptomatic...

In-Wheel Motor (IWM) vehicle design introduces a lot of benefits for manufacturers. However, it also decreases the ride comfort in the mid-range of perceivable frequencies. The Unsprung Negative Skyhook (UNS) damper control method offers ride comfort improvement in the same frequency range but has its limitations. This thesis proposes two...
