Using plant-hybrid technologies presents an unusual design opportunity, by combining living plants with technology. This master’s thesis delves into the integration of plant-hybrid robotics, exploring human-plant interaction systems. The study explores the potential design implications of this field, particularly in public settings where...

Several useful technologies to help people with dementia already exist. Robotic pets, for example, have been shown to alleviate negative symptoms associated with dementia. Most robotic pets, however, only have pet-like functionality. This is useful on its own, but adding additional care functionality would be helpful. A different useful tool for...

With the advancement of Artificial Intelligence leading to increasingly human-like outputs, assessing a machine’s ability to exhibit human-like intelligence has become more essential than ever. This study aims to investigate how human-like chess players perceive four conditions: one human opponent and three different types of algorithms. One of...

The promotion of desirable behaviours, such as socially appropriate or health-promoting actions, can be bolstered through a deeper understanding and awareness of the values that underpin the associated behavioural choices. Various implementations for promoting behaviour change based on goals already exist in Human-Robot Interaction, but, since...

Coggins, T.N. (author)
In the introduction of this thesis, I contend that robot ethics, as a research field, generally treats privacy as the appropriate distribution of information, and therefore overlooks privacy concerns raised by robots beyond this conceptualization’s purview. I illustrate this contention by evaluating a hypothetical case involving a household...

E-learning has shifted the traditional learning paradigms in higher education, offering more flexible, ubiquitous, and personalized learning experiences. The previous years COVID-19 pandemic required a re-calibration of education to accommodate virtual learning environments from the traditional classroom-based education. Widespread learning...

The increasing presence of robots calls for a more seamless and information-rich communication method between humans and robots. This paper explores how natural user interface (NUI) modalities, particularly speech and gesture controls, can be used through augmented reality (AR) to operate robots. The increasing presence of robots calls for...

Physical human-robot cooperation (pHRC) has the potential to combine human and robot strengths in a team that can achieve more than a human and a robot working on the task separately. However, how much of the potential can be realized depends on the quality of cooperation, in which awarenes of the partner’s intention and preferences plays an...

The hospitality industry, struggling with significant staff shortages, has increasingly turned to service robots as a solution. However, the prevalent service robot’s design with anthropomorphic appearance is considered inharmonious with the fine-dining restaurant ambiance and may harm the guests’ perception of the service. An alternative...

In this work, we propose a method of processing patient input on discomfort level during robot shoulder physiotherapy into discomfort maps. These maps represent the patient's discomfort distribution throughout the range of motion of the shoulder, interpretable by both physiotherapists and robots. This method consists of three parts: the patient...

During the learning of a new sensorimotor task, individuals are usually provided with instructional stimuli and relevant information about the target task. The inclusion of haptic devices in the study of this kind of learning has greatly helped in the understanding of how an individual can improve or acquire new skills. However, the way in...

This work illustrates how artistic robotic systems can provide a reservoir of unfamiliarity and a basis for speculation, to open the field toward new ways of thinking about HRI. We reflect on a collaborative project between design students, a media art studio, and design researchers working with the baggage handling department of the Schiphol...

Real-world applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in architecture have been explored more recently at Technical University (TU) Delft by integrating AI in Design-to-Robotic-Production-Assembly and -Operation (D2RPA&O) methods. These embed robotics into building processes and buildings by linking computational design with robotic...

The advent of collaborative robots allows humans and robots to cooperate in a direct and physical way. While this leads to amazing new opportunities to create novel robotics applications, it is challenging to make the collaboration intuitive for the human. From a system’s perspective, understanding the human intentions seems to be one...

Bessels, Koen (author)
This study investigated the human-robot interaction of three different augmented reality interfaces that enabled an operator to control a robot arm. The first control methods gives the operator complete manual control by moving a holographic object which the robot arm copies (Direct control). The second control method allows the operator to...

As robots become increasingly popular and co-inhabit spaces with people, there is a need for designing robots that people are comfortable interacting with. For robots to successfully integrate into human society, it is important to design robots in a way that enhances the quality of the human-robot interaction. While the human-robot relationship...

We propose a novel shared control interface that enables teleoperated teaching of both high-level decision-making skills and low-level impedance modulation skills using a single haptic device. In the proposed method, high-level teaching is achieved by repurposing the haptic device to remotely modify Behaviour Trees (BTs), allowing human...

This project focuses on developing design guidelines for Human-Agent Collaboration around Authority, Autonomy, and Control in the outdoor painting context. While painting as an activity is something most of us have done and understand, working professionals have a sense of pride and skill in their motions that would be difficult to replace with...

This paper addresses the research question: “How can a human-robot team achieve co-learning, and interdependence in physically embodied tasks?”<br/>A method has been developed that enables a human-robot team to co-learn the handover of an object from the robot to the human. Five design requirements were composed to address the challenges of...
