Immersive virtual reality (IVR) with head-mounted displays (HMDs) is expanding in various fields like training, but its effects on cognitive load from visual, auditory, and mental stimuli in virtual environments remain uncertain. This is particularly relevant in neurorehabilitation, where patients may suffer from training in overstimulating...

Lower-limb exoskeletons often use trajectory-tracking control to define the device's motion and assistance level. One challenge lies in ensuring a smooth and comfortable interaction between the user and the robotic device by defining a reference trajectory. While recent research has focused on generating individualized gait patterns based on...

This dissertation explores what road characteristics trigger drivers’ speed adjustments when approaching freeway curves. It combines speed prediction modelling and human factors research methods. The results show that drivers primarily consider visible cues such as the preceding roadway, deflection angle, and the number of lanes, as opposed to...

Food delivery riders face significant road safety risks globally. Previous studies have primarily focused on the direct relationship between job demands, job resources, and road safety behaviors, often neglecting the potential indirect paths through dual processes, namely the health impairment process and the motivational process, which may...

A better understanding of automation disengagements can lead to improved safety and efficiency of automated systems. This study investigates the factors contributing to automation disengagements initiated by human operators and the automation itself by analyzing semi-structured interviews with 103 users of Tesla’s Autopilot and FSD Beta. The...

In recent years, the medical world has seen rapid digitalisation. Digitalisation of healthcare and the opportunities of remote monitoring can help to keep the healthcare system affordable and accessible. A promising application of remote monitoring is the use of consumer-grade wearables for clinical care. However, vulnerabilities leave consumer...

Technological systems and infrastructures form the bedrock of modern society and it is system administrators (sysadmins) who configure, maintain and operate these infrastructures. More often than not, they do so behind the scenes. The work of system administration tends to be unseen and, consequently, not well known. After all, do you think of...

Understanding human behavior in overtaking scenarios is crucial for enhancing road safety in mixed traffic with automated vehicles (AVs). Modeling plays a pivotal role in advancing our comprehension of human overtaking behavior in dynamically evolving scenarios. Currently, our understanding of overtaking behavior primarily revolves around...

Burggraaf, J.M. (author)
Accidents at work come at a major cost including fatalities, disability and economic burden. The ideas around accident causation have changed over time from describing accidents as ‘acts of gods’ and as the fault of individual employees, to accidents being the result of an interaction between organizational, technical and human factors. Included...

In the system and network administration domain, gender diversity remains a distant target. The experiences and perspectives of sysadmins who belong to marginalized genders (non cis-men) are not well understood beyond the fact that sysadmin work environments are generally not equitable. We address this knowledge gap in our study by focusing on...

Current driver behaviour models (DBMs) are primarily designed for the general driver population under specific scenarios, such as car following or lane changing. Hence DBMs capturing individual behaviour under various scenarios are lacking. This paper presents a novel method to quantify individual perceived driving risk in the longitudinal...

Participatory data stewardship (PDS) empowers individuals to shape and govern their data via responsible collection and use. As artificial intelligence (AI) requires massive amounts of data, research must assess what factors predict consumers’ willingness to provide their data to AI. This mixed-methods study applied the extended Technology...

The operation of automated vehicles (AVs) on shared roads requires attention concerning their interactions with vulnerable road users (VRUs), such as cyclists. This study investigates the safety of cyclists when they interact with an AV and compares it with their interaction with a conventional vehicle. Overall, 29 cyclists participated in a...

Introduction: Driver distraction has been recognized for a long time as a significant road safety issue. It has been consistently reported that drivers spend considerable time engaged in activities that are secondary to the driving task. The temporary diversion of attention from safety-critical driving tasks has often been associated with...

Avoiding being caught and punished has consistently been demonstrated to be a key predictor of continued engagement in risky and illegal phone use while driving. This is a large concern, as the presence of applications such as Google Maps, Apple Maps, Waze, and social media pages/groups that share the location of enforcement activities related...

Tesla's Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD) program introduces technology that extends the operational design domain of standard Autopilot from highways to urban roads. This research conducted 103 in-depth semi-structured interviews with users of Tesla's FSD Beta and standard Autopilot to evaluate the impact on user behavior and perception. It was...

Understanding people’s travel behavior is key to creating spaces that discourage car use, especially for short, walkable distances. The scope of this study is to understand better people’s propensity to use a car rather than walk for short-distance trips by focusing on the concept of perceived exertion (PE). A comparison is performed of two...

Trucks are disproportionately involved in fatal traffic accidents and contribute significantly to CO<sub>2</sub> emissions. Gathering data from trucks presents a unique opportunity for estimating driver-specific costs associated with truck operation. Although research has been published on the predictive validity of driver data, such as in...
