The aim of this thesis is to derive bicycle rider control models, based on experimental data, that mimic the rider in his balance control task at various forward speeds. These rider control models can help to understand cyclists falls, improve training techniques, assess the handling properties of new bicycle designs and create active balance...

Intertidal flats — regions of estuaries that emerge every tide from the water — form unique ecosystems. Benthic communities living in the bed are a valuable food source for wading birds. Salt marshes present on these flats further enhance the biodiversity. Through the damping of waves, intertidal flats also contribute to the safety of the...

Telemanipulation systems - in 1925 a vision to remotelytreat patients, today widely adopted in a variety of applications - allow humanoperators to perform tasks which otherwise could not be performed, due to, forexample, limitations with respect to distance (e.g., space), scale (e.g.,surgery or micro-assembly) or hostile...

Social skills are often an integral part of functioning in modern society, and therefore, in the past decades, social skills training has received considerable research attraction. Various physical and digital approaches have been developed to improve people’s performance in social interaction. Among these approaches, social skills training...

A previous study clustered home occupants into archetypes with a questionnaire. This study uses qualitative methods to strengthen those previously-found archetypes with data pertaining to the participants’ home experiences. Focus groups were carried out where generative activities were conducted involving the generation of collages. The first...

Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) are environments with a high level of sensory stress. Medical advances and technology have contributed to increase the ratio of survival of premature infants but some devices and practices expose these babies to excessive noise and toxic sensory stimuli for which they are not prepared. This is related to...

Accountability and responsibility are key concepts in the academic and societal debate on Autonomous Weapon Systems, but these notions are often used as high-level overarching constructs and are not operationalised to be useful in practice. “Meaningful Human Control” is often mentioned as a requirement for the deployment of Autonomous Weapon...

The fine sediment distribution in the seabed is an important indicator for the ecological functioning of shallow coastal seas. In this paper, we investigate the processes and conditions that determine the fine sediment distribution in the Dutch coastal zone surficial seabed, while also assessing the response of the system to human...

In recent years, functional genomics approaches combining genetic information with bulk RNA-sequencing data have identified the downstream expression effects of disease-associated genetic risk factors through so-called expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) analysis. Single-cell RNA-sequencing creates enormous opportunities for mapping...

Within current debates about the future impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on human society, roughly three different perspectives can be recognised: (1) the technology-centric perspective, claiming that AI will soon outperform humankind in all areas, and that the primary threat for humankind is superintelligence; (2) the human-centric...

BACKGROUND: Gait training with partial body weight support (BWS) has become an established rehabilitation technique. Besides passive unloading mechanisms such as springs or counterweights, also active systems that allow rendering constant or modulated vertical forces have been proposed. However, only pilot studies have been conducted to...

Learning skills from kinesthetic demonstrations is a promising way of minimizing the gap between human manipulation abilities and those of robots. We propose an approach to learn sequential force interaction skills from such demonstrations. The demonstrations are decomposed into a set of movement primitives by inferring the underlying...

Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) attract increasing attention in recent years. Researchers aim at developing fully autonomous systems that replace the role of human operators. Studies either focus on supporting conflict/collision detection (for manned ships) or solving conflict automatically (for unmanned ships). The cooperation...

This paper analyses the user safety of a playground built out of reused blades from a dismantled wind turbine. Located in Rotterdam and designed by the Netherlands architecture firm Superuse Studios, the playground, called “Wikado”, represents an example of the circular economy applied to the built environment. With reused materials, Wikado...

Recent developments in the concept of UAS operations in urban areas have led to risk concerns of UAS collision with human. To better understand this risk, head and neck injuries due to UAS collisions have been investigated by different research teams using crash dummies. Because of the limitations in biofidelity of a crash dummy, head injury...

The present research explored to what extent user engagement in proactive recommendation scenarios is influenced by the accuracy of recommendations, concerns with information privacy, and trait personality. We hypothesized that people’s self-reported information privacy concerns would matter more when they received accurate (vs. inaccurate)...

This paper introduces the Cross-frequency Amplitude Transfer Function (CATF), a model-free method for quantifying nonlinear stimulus-response interaction based on phase-locked amplitude relationship. The CATF estimates the amplitude transfer from input frequencies at stimulation signal to their harmonics/intermodulation at the response signal....

Sustainable innovation and transitions are increasingly gaining traction within academia, industries, and policymakers. Despite the research efforts, sustaining innovation and operationalizing transitions still remains a barely explored field. The pragmatic step from understanding towards doing is often not made explicit in the literature. In...

Bayesian Network (BN) has been increasingly exploited to improve different aspects of Human Reliability Analysis (HRA), resulting in a new generation of HRA techniques, known as BN-HRA models. However, validating and evaluating the accuracy of BN-HRA models is still a challenging task. In this study, we have assessed and compared the...

The life cycle human health (HH) impacts related to aviation biofuels have been understood in a limited way. Life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) methods for assessing HH are often associated with a high level of uncertainty and a low level of consensus. As a result, it remains challenging to perform a robust assessment of HH impacts with a...
